Don’t worry about selling your present home:  Winter is a good time to do it!  Selling your house this winter– Don’t let that stop you!  We asked our clients about their experiences selling in the winter.  Here are their thoughts.

Show that Your Home Can Handle the Weather

The winter season lends itself to showing off how your home is sturdy, secure and built for the elements.  Be prepared for home buyers by having your driveway and walkways shoveled.  This will allow them to see the charm of New England weather.  Always have the heat on when a showing is scheduled.  This will create a warm inviting atmosphere and will show a prospective homeowner that the furnace and heating systems are working well.  If you have a fireplace- show it off and have a fire going.  Put all the lights on to brighten up each room especially on a dreary cloudy winter’s day.  Don’t underestimate the power of freshly baked cookies to help lure a warm and restful feeling for a buyer.  This cozy feeling will go a long way to help a prospect remember your house.

There are Fewer Houses on the Market in the winter

The spring and summer months are when everyone else puts their house on the market.  Why not get a jump on things by listing your home in the winter.  This means there is less competition for you to worry about.  Winter buyers are purposeful.  They are looking to move for a specific purpose.  Maybe they are looking for more space, upgrades or a specific school system and oftentimes they need to move quickly.   Your home will stand out in the crowd if it is one of only a few that are available.
