It can be hard to sell a home in the winter, and we currently have the lowest inventory that we’ve had all year, but demand is still very high.
DENVER (PRWEB) December 13, 2017
Spring and summer are widely considered the best house selling seasons, whereas the market tends to dramatically cool down in winter. “It can be hard to sell a home in the winter, and we currently have the lowest inventory that we’ve had all year, but demand is still very high,” said Realtor Troy Hansford, of the Troy Hansford Real Estate Team at RE/MAX Unlimited. “However, there are still ways to ensure your home sells in the slower winter months.”
No. 1: Make the house shine. This includes cleaning the interior from top to bottom and decluttering. It is highly advisable to also hire a staging consultant. “No matter what time of the year, it’s important to have your home show its best,” stressed Hansford.
No. 2: Enhance curb appeal. The outside of the house is just as important as the inside, as it is the first thing a prospective buyer sees. “First impressions always count, and curb appeal still matters in the winter,” added Hansford. “Keep the lawn tidy, utilize seasonal landscaping and decorate, or not, as long as it’s at a reasonable level.”
No. 3: Incorporate professional photography. Many people these days make buying decisions online, which is why professional photography is imperative when selling a home. “If your home doesn’t grab the attention of a buyer online, they will move on to the next home for sale,” concluded Hansford.
