Top tips for selling your home over winter


Selling your home over the festive period can add showcase the cosiness of your home, so be sure to maximise this to your advantage.
Check out our tips to ensure your potential buyers are wowed by your home in the most wintry conditions. 



Stun with first impressions

The driveway and front path areas will be the first thing a potential buyer will see, so make sure these are as tidy as possible, remember to:
• Sweep the path
• Remove leaves in drains
• Clean windowsills
Be wary of carpets becoming muddy as people enter your house in the rain or snow, so make a special effort to make your house sparkle on first impressions.



Create a light and cosy atmosphere

You want your home to seem as inviting as possible so be sure to turn the heating on or light a fire to create a cosy environment they won’t want to leave.
Maximise light to avoid a dull feel to your interiors during the day with open curtains and blinds. During winter there are less hours of daylight, so if your viewing is at night make sure your home is well lit inside and out.



Put up decorations for a festive feel

Christmas decorations will always make a house feel more homely, but if you don’t want to go fully festive then a simple wreath, fairy lights and candles will add warmth.



Don’t forget the garden!

Don’t forget your buyers may not be able to picture the garden as it could be in the summer months, so try to make it as clear as possible:
Clear weeds and leaves
Store garden furniture if possible
Ensure outside lighting works
