Winter provides the opportunity for homes to be viewed at their cosiest allowing sellers to take advantage of the colder months to sell their properties. we have put together a few tips on how to present your property to home buyers in the winter months.
First Impressions are the most important so make sure the first thing your potential buyers see on arrival is a tidy exterior. During the winter months gardens and outdoor space can begin to look a bit tired. Its important to invest some of your time in tyding your outdoor spaces, making sure any old leafs are raked up and any grass areas have been trimmed. To make the front of your property welcoming think about a new coat of paint for the front door, a new door mat and some colourful winter plants in attractive pots.
Cosy touches to our home at this time of year are essential to make it feel as appealing as possible to potential buyers. Set your heating to an optimal temperature and make sure radiators are turned on in unused rooms or spaces. Light any open fires or log burners that may be present at the property to create a cosy ambience. Add rugs to hard flooring and use throws and pillows to furniture that combine colour and texture for example velvets, fringing, fur and quilting can all work together to create a fashion-forward makeover in the home. Candles can be used to add to the cosiness.
Good lighting is essential during the winter months especially if it’s a drab day. Make the most of natural light by simply washing windows this also shows your home is well maintained. Make sure all your lights are working and add lamps to any corners or areas of the property that are lacking light.
