Selling in winter
Published 14/01/13



IF you’re considering selling your house now, you’re in luck — estate agents will generally advise that the New Year is a good time to plan a launch on the market.

And the latest report from the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors shows that buyer demand is on the up.

With this is mind, here are our top tips for selling your house this winter.

1. Use the winter setting and cold weather to show off the warmth and cosiness of your home. This is a chance for you to demonstrate your heating system to potential buyers. If you have a working fireplace make sure you use it as that’s a great feature to show off. An open fire gives your living room a lovely, wintry, homely glow.

2. In the winter months in order to protect your carpet and flooring it’s even more important that you ask potential buyers to remove their shoes whilst in your home. It shows you value the cleanliness of your home and could also highlight features such as a plush carpet, or wood floors.


3. Ensure your garden is tidy and clear. Your garden and exterior may be without the greenery it usually has in spring and summer but you can make it an attractive prospect by ensuring leaves are cleared away and there’s a “tidy” feel to the overall look.

4. Ways to show off the summer features of your home. Have a selection of photographs on display which show the best features of your home in the summer months. Photos of your garden and exteriors are a good example to use because in the winter they can appear vastly different compared to the summer.
