Top Tips for Selling your Home in Winter from The National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA)
December 12th, 2016
As more people stay in and have the opportunity to browse the housing market from the comfort and warmth of their homes and cafés, plus with thoughts of where they wish to be in the New Year, here are some Top Tops from the NAEA for how to market your home in Winter:
1. FIRST IMPRESSIONS COUNT
Think about your property’s ‘curb appeal’
Avoid drab front gardens and paths
Paint any weather-beaten walls
Replace any frost-bitten plants
2. RUN AN OPEN HOUSE
Attract committed & focused buyers, rather traipsing to cold windy streets, entice them into your warm home
Maybe even offer any prospective buyers a warm drink and slice of homemade cake!
3. KEEP IT WARM
Allow time before for any viewings for the property to warm up
Keep it well-heated during viewings
Think about better insulating colder rooms
4. CHECK YOUR LIGHTS
Make sure your home is well-lit. This can help to create a more homely cosy atmosphere in winter
With little sunshine to brighten things up, make sure all of your interior, exterior and security light bulbs are working to show your home off at its best!
