Tips for Selling House:
Did you know that winter is actually one of the best times to sell your home? But where do you start.
Hi, I’m Rich Barnes, owner and broker of Realty Experts in West Allis, Wisconsin. Winter time means less competition in the marketplace and buyers tend to be more serious about purchasing, so take advantage of that and list your home now. Even with the leverage, there are still some things that you can do to sell quickly before the rush starts in the spring.
Number One. keep the decor simple. If you’re holiday fanatic, make sure that your decorations are packed away or at least minimized. Some pretty white lights outside can enhance curb appeal, but make sure that the Christmas tree is long gone.
Number Two, capitalize on the cozy light. A fire burned some scented candles.Bake some cookies. Create an environment that screams home, not just house.
Number three, light the way. The sun goes down earlier in the winter, so a mid-afternoon showing sometimes can be dark. Be sure that you have a well-lit path to the door and that you have a lit up exterior to make the house look appealing.
Of course, standard showing rules still apply, declutter and depersonalize, but these little extra touches can help a prospective buyer. Imagine themselves living in your house. For other tips and tricks, make sure you contact me. I’m always available, and I’m here to help. Rich Barnes, Realty Experts, and have a great day.
