Tips for selling a house in winter

14th December 2017

Most people prefer to sell their home in the warmer months, however, fewer houses on the market means that there could be a higher chance for your home to stand out from the crowd. Here are some things that you can do to make your house more appealing to potential buyers this Christmas season!

We are an estate agent focussed on guiding you through the selling process, no matter the season, and offer a number of property selling packages to suit your needs and budget.

Improve curb appeal

In the winter, outdoor areas can lose a lot of their greenery and the colour from flowering plants, so it’s important to give your front and back garden some extra attention when attempting to sell your property in winter. We suggest removing dead plants and introducing some lush looking evergreens to inject colour. Our number one goal is providing help and guidance for our customers preparing to sell and can advise you on what actions to take.

Make sure your house is warm

We suggest that you make sure that your house is warm and cosy for potential buyers by turning up the thermostat to a comfortable temperature and trying to eliminate any cold drafts. After coming inside from the cold outdoors, potential buyers may be turned off from a property in which they don’t feel like they can comfortably take off their coats!

Keep your house well lit

This tip applies to both the inside and outside of your property. When the days are darker and colder, lighting becomes more essential in the presentation of your home than at any other time, and we suggest that you make sure all lights are working effectively before accepting potential buyers. Making sure your outdoor area is well lit can instantly make a good impression, and will make your property appear more warm and inviting.
