Make A Good Impression: 4 Tips For Selling Your Home In The Winter In Oregon
#1. Stay on top of the shoveling
Snow and ice can build up. If you get a showing, you’d rather just grab your wallet and keys and leave the house instead of having to dig a path to the front door for the potential buyers. You’ll need to stay on top of the shoveling! Chip the ice and snow away from the door so your potential buyers can safely get in your house. Yes, it’s a hassle but you need to get it done.
#2. Keep a mat by the front door, inside and outside
In the summer you may not care if potential buyers walk through your home with their shoes on. But when there’s snow in your area then you may not want them doing that. So keep a mat by the front door, inside and outside, so your potential buyers have a place to wipe their boots. Depending on how you feel about it you may ask your potential buyers to remove shoes.
#3. Decorate for a friendly holiday
During the winter season, different cultures have different celebrations. Avoid appealing to one holiday tradition while alienating another. Instead, decorate for winter with wreaths, snowmen, and other neutral, family-friendly decorations to make your house feel festive and welcoming to all. Decorate for the season, not any particular culture.
#4. Clear off your best outdoor features
If you get snow, it can cover up some of the highlights in your yard that could be attractive to buyers. A heavy snowfall, for example, could cover a deck, patio, or pond. Take the time to keep your best lawn features cleared of snow to highlight these selling points.
Selling your house in the winter can be a lot of work. If you use these tips your chances of making that sale are greater!
