PARKLANE PROPERTY EXPERT SATTY BHAMRA GIVES ADVICE ON SELLING YOUR HOME IN WINTER
Winter isn’t the prime season to sell your home. It’s dark, cold, and your property probably doesn’t look at its best. But, selling your home in winter isn’t impossible so don’t let the colder months put you off. With these tips, and with the help of the fantastic sales team at Parklane Properties, you can get your property from “For Sale” to “Sold” in no time. Plus at Parklane Properties, we’ve now extended our £1199 (inc. VAT) fixed fee offer until 31st December 2017!
Keep Your Home Warm
Light a fire or turn your heating up to make your home a warm space. When potential buyers view your property, not only do they want to feel welcome but they want to know their future home retains its heat during winter. A warm property gives them more reason to look around for longer too. No one wants to go back out into the cold!
Make The Front Of Your Property Well Lit
Before viewers arrive, ensure your security light is working and add lighting on the path to your home. Not only will viewers be able to see the outside of your home better but it makes the property more inviting. Inside your home, ensure that all lightbulbs are working and your blinds or curtains are open.
Decorate Your Home
You don’t have to redecorate, but dress your home to show it off at its best. Set the table for dinner, throw cosy blankets on the sofa, plump up the cushions and line up matching bath products in the bathroom. The smallest touches can make a huge difference.
This goes without saying but ensure your home is as clean as possible before a viewing. Bleach the grout in the bathroom, close the toilet lid, clean the windows and mirrors, empty and bins, and dust daily to keep your home at its best.
Scent Your Home With Fragrance
This could be through fresh flowers, scented candles or a reed diffuser. Making your home smell nice is a must in winter. It’s not practical to open your windows as it’s cold, so a fresh scent through your home gives your viewers a positive impression from the moment they walk in.
If you’re looking to buy a new home this winter, Parklane Properties can help. Until the 31st December, we even have a £1199 (inc. VAT) fixed fee offer, which will save you money during the costly festive period.
