Preparing Edmonton homes for sale this winter
Some people may think that they cannot sell their home during the winter months in Edmonton, but this isn’t exactly true, and you can definitely list your home on the Edmonton real estate market and Sherwood Park Real Estate, and here are some things you can do.
Shoveling and removing snow
The exterior of your home is the potential buyers first impression of your home, so keeping the outside clean and clear of snow is a must in the winter time. You also want potential buyers to be safe when coming up to your home, so make sure to shovel snow from the driveway and walkways. Clean off snow and ice from the windows, as the view from inside and out through those windows is something the buyers will be looking at.
Brighten up the house
As we all know, the days during winter can be cloudy and dark, and the daylight doesn’t last as long, so it is important to keep the exterior and interior of your home as bright as you can. The potential buyer should be able to see every part of your home easily, even in the dark.
Turn up the heat
When viewing Homes for Sale in Edmonton buyers are going to be cold traveling from home to home, so it’s important when they visit your home they feel warm and comfortable. The more comfortable they feel the longer they will be willing to stay and look at the home. If you have a fireplace make sure to have it going, as fireplaces in the cold winter days can give a very cozy feel, and helps the buyer imagine themselves there.
When it comes to the furnace and keeping the home warm that way, make sure the home is a comfortable temperature before the potential buyers arrive at your home. Some HVAC units can be very loud and will deter the buyer from buying your home, so make sure it is not running when they are there.
These are just a few of the things you can do when preparing Edmonton homes for sale this winter. If you’re looking to invest or looking for Sherwood Park Real Estate Agents and for more information, contact RE/MAX Elite today!
