Take advantage of the winter chill and make your property stand out as extra
warm and cosy! Here are some great tips to make your home look appealing
during the winter season:
Freshen up your property by putting out potted flowers to brighten up the garden area. Rake up leaves, prune bushes with dead leaves and mow your lawn. This will help your property look more vibrant and fresh.
Use winter staging tricks
A warm fire can be a great asset in the winter; if you have a fireplace, ensure it is lit during an inspection. Blankets can be used on couches and in the bedroom to create a cosy vibe, making buyers feel at home in your property.
Clean the windows
Most winter days tend to be overcast, clean windows will allow any sunlight that appears to
beam freely into the place.
Use lighting to your advantage
On dim winter days, you may not have as much natural lighting as you would like. Turn on all of your lamps and lighting fixtures to banish dark corners from rooms and give the place a cosy glow.
Keep the heating on
It’s nice to enter a warm place when it’s cold outside, and in addition it will help erase any
doubts about whether or not the heating system works. However, don’t have it up too high – you don’t want people to feel like they’re walking into a sauna.
Make minor repairs
No matter what time of year you plan on selling your property in, you’ll want to prepare for
the sale by having a property that’s in proper working order.
Protect the interior
Don’t encourage muddy footprints on the carpet. Provide an umbrella stand and welcome
mat outside the door to minimise mud from shoes. Consider leaving a sign asking buyers
to remove their shoes before entering the home. This shows buyers that you care about
protecting your property, which can be a bonus to those who rank cleanliness high on their list.
