While there are certain pros and cons of selling your home in the Winter, try these 3 tricks before putting your house on the market.

Landscaping and Exterior

Just because it’s Winter don’t neglect the curb appeal of your home. Consider using more exterior lighting to create a welcoming appeal and remember to keep all sidewalks and lanes shovelled and slip free. During Winter months there is less natural colour, so adding some Winter landscaping will ensure beautiful pops of colour. Check out some great options here: Plants that survive Winter

Interior Maintenance

On top of regular home winterization such as getting your furnace professionally maintained, it’s a good time to check and fix any leaks and seals around windows and doors. Natural lighting also plays an important factor in the sale of a home so ensure your lighting is updated and adequate for each space. Painting rooms in neutral colours allows for you to decorate with colour.

Stage your Home

Staging your home is the best way to achieve top dollar on your investment. Staging a space is really creating a space. It’s allowing a buyer to come in and completely envision themselves living there. A stager effectively layers both colour and textures such as pillows, throws and rugs.

There are usually less homes for sale during the Winter months, but also less buyers. The buyers looking are usually more serious buyers. So these are three great ways to get started before selling your home in the Winter.
