How can you sell your home during the winter? Check out these 5 tips that will help you get it sold over the Holidays!
1. Hire a reputable Realtor; trusting one of your largest assets to a reputable Realtor just makes sense. I have over 30 years experience selling in Elgin County and southwestern Ontario. As well, I have a strong track record of sales and happy clients. Regardless of who you choose though, ensure you hire someone who is going to work for your best interests.
2. Decorate your house for the holidays but don’t go overboard! Many of us love the Christmas season but you want your home to be showcased, not your collection of ornaments or Christmas village. For one year, it might be a good idea to scale back. The good news is when you sell, there will be less to pack up!
3. Price it to sell!
4. Keep your inside temperature comfortable and cozy. The moment buyers walk through the front door, you want them to feel warm and welcomed by your home.
5. Include exterior photographs of your home from the warmer months. Whether you have a backyard oasis or not, you want your prospective buyer to see what your yard looks like in the warmer months. Perhaps you have mature trees or a pool; your buyers will want to envision themselves living there.
