It’s cold, icy, snowy and gray – and you need to sell your home, now. There’s no getting around the fact that winter is not the best time to sell a home. But there are things you can do to give yourself the best possible shot at attracting buyers.
This article from The Balance offers some great tips on steps you can take to make your home shine with a welcoming atmosphere. These include clearing a path through snow or ice and opening shades, blinds and curtains to let in natural light. Add coziness by turning up the heat or lighting the fireplace, and create a welcoming atmosphere with music and fresh flowers. You can even create a few self-staged rooms to showcase the good times to be had in your wonderful home. For example, dress your dining room table for a romantic dinner for two or turn the bedroom into a tranquil retreat with a breakfast tray on the bed, containing a coffee cup, saucer, napkin and book. Have a few savory winter treats on hand in the kitchen, and display beautiful photos of your home during the lush spring and summer.
