Tips For Selling In The Winter

Nothing says welcome home quite like walking out of the cold into a nice, warm house.  Its easier to make a house feel like home in the wintertime.  Here are a few tips to help you set the buying mood:

*    Keep  it simple.  If you are selling around a holiday and have decorations up, make sure they accent---not overpower---a room.  Less is more.

*    Crank up the cozy.  Light a fire in the hearth, play soft holiday music in the background, and prepare fresh-baked goods or mulled cider for guests.

*    Shine a light outside.  Winter days get dark early.  Brighten your home's exterior with outdoor spotlights.  

*    Take down outside decor.  Nothing says "my home won't sell" like a house with reindeer inflatables on the lawn in February.

*    Avoid a winter wonderland.  Snow is great, unless we're talking about outside shots of your home.  Buyers want to see details of the house,  not a blanket of snow.  Make sure you have clear weather photos of your home.

Remember, the nicer your home looks, the more likely it is to sell-----and for more money.
