With the cold Edmonton winter approaching, some feel it is impossible to sell a home in the winter, but this is simply not true. There are many things you can do to make your North Edmonton home for sale ready this winter, and here are some tips on what you can do.
Shovel Driveways and Walkways
The exterior of your home is the first thing the potential will see, and with your home covered in thick white snow, it doesn’t make for the best first impression. You also want the potential buyers to enter your home safely. Make sure to shovel your driveway and walkways, and salt them to ensure no ice has built up.
Light up the Darkness
With winter comes dark days an early nights, which means you’ll want your home nice and bright for the potential buyers. Make sure to open blinds, curtains, and drapes. Turn on every light in the house, including appliances and closets.
Turn up the Heat
In winter the temperature of your home is vital when trying to sell your home. You want the buyer to feel comfortable in order for them to stick around longer. It is best to keep your home a little warmer than usual, so that the furnace does not kick in while the buyer is present, some HVAC systems can be quite loud.
Set the Mood
Winter is quite a beautiful season, and setting the right mood in winter can really help to sway the potential buyer. You want to ensure the living room feels warm and cozy, so turn on the fireplace, set some wine and wine glasses down by the fire. You can also set a mood in the dining room, by decorating your table with place settings for two, candles and glasses of wine.
These are just a few tips to prepare your home for sale this winter. For more information contact your local North Edmonton real estate agent Ahmad Sai today!
