Selling your home in Winter?

It’s a common misconception that putting your home on the market in the cooler months is not a good idea. But selling your home in Autumn or Winter may bring several advantages.

With less properties on the market, there will be less competition for your home, which means more buyers to look at and consider your property. The buyers will also be more motivated and genuine buyers if they are looking for a home.

If you are putting your home on the market in Winter, here are thre top tips to maximise your opportunity to stand out to the buyers:

  1. Create a warm, cosy atmosphere
    First impressions count, so be sure to stack the odds in your favour. Dress your home to look warm and inviting with some woollen throws and blankets to create that cozy atmosphere.
  2. Warm lighting
    Create pools of warmth around your home with warm lighting instead of cooler white or neutral lighting.
  3. Play up Winter features
    Now is the time to stock up your fireplace if you have one, to draw attention to that so buyers can imaging their Winter evenings in front of a warm fire. If you don’t have a fireplace, you might have a fire pit to place in the back yard to show how the outdoor space might be used for cozy evenings entertaining in the garden.

If you’re considering selling your property, you don’t need to wait for Summer to do so.
