Spring and summer might be the hottest seasons for real estate, but, with a little preparation, you can still get a fast sale and good price during Colorado’s frigid winters. In fact, buyers shopping during the winter might be more motivated, which can make listing a home for sale now a great idea. Here’s what you should consider if you’re planning on putting your house on the market this winter.
3 Tips for Selling Your Home in the Winter
1. Keep It Green
When there’s snow on the ground and clouds in the sky, a little greenery can make your house pop. Place some evergreens and winter blooms around the front door, and sprinkle potted plants throughout the rooms. Along with good staging, a little bit of life can make your home feel warmer, no matter what the weather’s like outside.
2. Maintain the Temperature
Shoppers will probably be dressed for the outdoors, so you don’t need to keep the house balmy and warm. However, if it’s too cold, house hunters might have trouble imagining the place as their own cozy refuge. When showing people around the home, set your thermostat to 65 degrees, which should keep everyone comfortable.
3. Shovel the Snow
If there’s more than a dusting of snow on the ground, make sure the sidewalk and driveway are always shoveled and clean when your home is for sale. Not only will this make your house look more attractive from the street, but it will also prevent slips and accidents for which you could be held liable.
