How To Prepare To Sell Your Home In the Winter
Updated: Feb 22
During the Colorado winter, the days are shorter, temperatures are colder, and it is more important than ever to take the extra steps to make your home warm and inviting. These additional preparations are an excellent way to distinguish your home from the other houses on the market, and it just may be the difference in getting that final sale.
Here are some easy ways to make your home warm and inviting for potential buyers.
Clear off all ice and snow from all walkways - You do not want visitors drudging through the snow to get to your house or, even worse, slipping and falling. Plus, clear sidewalks look a lot more inviting.
Place a new doormat in front of your front door - A fresh doormat gives a good presentation of your home. It also encourages visitors to wipe their feet and not track dirt and debris into your place.
Leave a light on - At night, leave an entryway light on to welcome new visitors. And if you have staged your home, leave the lights on throughout the house to complete the look.
Keep your home at a comfortable temperature - You want your home warm and inviting, so a cold house will not do the trick. Keep your home at least 65 degrees.
