3 Things to Help Sell Your Home in Winter

Winter may be a quieter season for listings and sales, but with fewer homes on the markets and less competition, it’s good news for sellers with more chance of their property standing out from the rest. Don’t let shorter days and colder weather damper your home-selling plans.

3 Things to Help Sell Your Home in WinterImprove your chances of a successful sale this winter, with 3 strategies to showcase your home at its best even during the coldest months of the year.

1. Embrace the cosy factor.
Winter offers the perfect opportunity to showcase your home’s comfort and warmth during the colder months. From incorporating winter-themed decor to creating inviting spaces that evoke a sense of cosiness, there’s no better time to show off your home’s features than during winter open homes.

If natural light doesn’t flood into your home during open homes or when potential buyers are viewing, turn on lamps and lights to give your home a lift and make it feel bright, spacious, and appealing.

Embrace the cosy factor

Turn up the temperature by switching on heaters in every room to create a warm and inviting space, ensure dampness and mould are treated and cleaned, and that your home is well-ventilated and condensation-free.

2. Maximise curb appeal.
While winter may conceal your home’s exterior charm, it doesn’t mean you have to give up on making a stellar first impression. Enhance your home’s curb appeal even amid cold weather, by utilising the exterior space in your garden and outdoor areas.

Maximise curb appeal

Get the water blaster out and clean your home’s exterior, paths, and driveway. Cut back trees and shrubs around windows and doors to let the light inside your home. Pull out the weeds, tidy the garden and mow the lawn, and touch up on any untidy bits of paint outside your home. Add bold house numbers to ensure your home is easy to find, clean or pack away outdoor furniture, and add some winter flowering plants to brighten up the outdoor space.

3. Get help from an expert.
Collaborating with a local Harcourts real estate agent who has a track record of successful sales in your area is a great way to ensure your home is marketed to showcase its unique features and achieve the best sales price.
