Selling Your Property Quickly in the Winter
It’s often believed that selling your home in the Winter is a trivial process, but the colder months can work in favour of the seller. Whilst people are choosing to stay inside in the warmth, they’re also searching for properties online at a time of the year when fewer choices on the market will make your property more desirable.
If you’re looking to move home in time for the new year, here’s what you need to do to make your property stand out to potential buyers.
First Impressions Matter
First impressions are everything, and that doesn’t apply only to the appearance of your property. Giving your walls a fresh lick of paint will make your house look bright and airy, but keeping the property warm and smelling fresh is just as important.
Consider leaving your parking space free, clearing any snow from the entrance of your home and offering refreshments to make potential buyers feel welcomed.
Buyers need to visualise themselves in your home. Each room should be deep cleaned and decluttered, but this doesn’t mean your home should be stripped of personality. At Christmas time, festive decorations can help create a cosy and homely feel.
Appeal to Everyone
Whilst you love your pets, potential buyers may not. Hide evidence of pets by keeping surfaces clean of pet hairs and rooms odour-free. If you are a smoker, wash bedding and curtains, and sprinkle baking soda over carpets to absorb the smell of smoke.
Broken fixtures and fittings and water leaks will veer people away from your property, so fixing any problems before putting your house on the market is a must.
What’s on the Outside Counts Too
The Winter months can often give your property a gloomy look, but with a little maintenance, you can make your garden shine. Don’t allow your garden to become overgrown or littered with weeds.
