It might seem that everyone is hibernating for the winter, but home shoppers are still out there in the colder months. Here are few tips for making your listing stand out.
1. Stay warm
This is not the time to save a few bucks on your heating bill. You want to create a feeling of welcoming warmth and you can't do that with a chilly house. If the home is vacant, keep the heater on a timer so the property is warm during showing times.
2. Lighten up
It's even more important to make sure each room is well-lit during the darker winter months. Table and standing lamps are quick fixes for a dim room.
3. Highlight seasonal features
Build a fire. Arrange some plush throws and fluffy cushions on the sofas in your finished basement. If your home has features that make it a cozy place to spend the winter, be sure to highlight them.
