Selling In Winter
Posted by Rebekah Hutton on Tue, Jun 2018
Selling in winter can be hot. Despite the temperature dropping drastically, house prices do quite the opposite.
Regardless of the time of year, there are always buyers, and chances are, if they’re out braving the cold at open for inspections, they’re serious about wanting to purchase a property. There are less properties on the market during Winter, meaning the demand far outweighs the supply. As a result, there are more buyers competing for your property, which in turn results in higher clearance rates and great results.
When selling in Winter, it’s important to take advantage of the season rather than contest it. Make your home warm and inviting. Candles, open fires, deep colours and soft fabrics can have an alluring effect and appeal in turning a house into a home. Utilise warm lighting rather than white lighting, it is softer and more welcoming.
Winter presents itself with the opportunity for magical photography. Winter photography uses the sheer contrast of light and dark and looks stunning. Embellish your properties photography with an enchanted Winter glow.
