There are advantages to selling in winter. Generally there are fewer houses on the market and this drives up demand amongst buyers. You can also enjoy faster turnaround times on professional services like your solicitor or conveyancer as well as pest and building inspections, bank valuations and loan approvals.
Here are a few tips for those of you who are selling this winter:
1. Create a warm atmosphere: Small touches can make a significant difference to your home’s overall appeal. To create a lasting positive impression with prospective buyers, invest in new coverings, rugs and cushions in warm shades like brown, red and gold. Select coverings made from wool and fur to create a cosy, welcoming feel.
2. Perfect outdoor area presentation: It can be easy to neglect outdoor areas in the cooler winter months, but they can be one of your property’s main selling points if presented well. Set up an outdoor heater to show buyers that gardens and outdoor areas can still be utilised in winter. Ensure lawns are mowed, hedges and flower beds are neatly trimmed, and the pool is clean and sparkling.
3. Ensure there is enough light: Indoor areas can get quite dark in winter, even in the morning. Turn on all lights and remove clutter to create the illusion of more space. Clean windows and blinds to let as much natural light into the property as possible. Open windows throughout the property, even if it’s just a crack, otherwise it will be too stuffy with all the people inspecting.
If you are thinking of selling, don’t wait for spring when the market is highly competitive. Call Professionals Clyde Poulton Real Estate on 4421 2644 for a free, no obligation market appraisal and find out what you property is worth.
