What can make selling a home more stressful than usual? Selling it in the winter. We are experiencing a bout of great weather for this time of year…. but if you’re in the midwest, you know it’s coming!
Generally speaking, during winter there are fewer buyers , the skies are gloomy and then their are obvious poor weather conditions. So what can you do to have some success with showing your home during these cold, winter months when most are of the opinion that spring, summer and fall are the times of year to sell your home? Warm and brighten up the place; make it look like a refuge from the weather!
Not everyone has the luxury of waiting until the traditional spring or summer home-buying season to plant that “for sale” sign. And while it’s true that in most areas you’ll probably have fewer buyers during the winter, you will also have less competition from other sellers.
