3 Steps for the Perfect Winter Home Sale

Here are three easy tips to help you sell your home this winter.


Conventional wisdom says spring is the best time of year to sell your home. While spring is definitely the busiest time of year to buy or sell a house, that doesn’t mean you can’t sell in winter! Even if it’s freezing and snowing, you can still get a great deal for your house; you just need to put in a little work. Here are my best tips to help you get your home market-ready for the winter months:
1. Create a warm and inviting atmosphere. The cold and snowy weather can be a bit of a downer, but it gives your home a chance to show off! Consider lighting subtle candles to give your home a nice smell and add some extra light. You may want to play some calming music as well. Finally, make sure you keep the heat up to a comfortable temperature for your buyers so they feel cozy as they view your home.

The Top 3 Things You Shouldn’t Fix When Getting a House Ready To Sell

Sharing three projects you shouldn’t take on when preparing to sell.

When preparing to sell your house, you need to make sure it’s appealing to potential buyers. Many homeowners rush to fix every little flaw, thinking it will boost their property's value, but not every improvement will yield a significant return on investment. To help you avoid the ones that aren’t worthwhile, here are the top three things you should avoid fixing when getting your house ready to sell:
1. Minor HVAC, electrical, and plumbing issues. While well-maintained and fully functional systems are crucial for any home, addressing minor issues in these areas may not be the best use of your resources. Major problems that could significantly impact the home's livability and safety should be fixed, but minor issues are usually better left for the buyer to handle.

Sharing the three most important things you need to do when selling.

If you’re thinking about selling your home anytime soon, you need to know how to get the most money out of it. Too many people fall into the trap of thinking they don’t need to put in any work or that they need to spend enormous amounts of money to increase the value of their homes. The truth is that effort is necessary, but a little bit can go a long way. Here are my three tips for how to increase the value of your home:
1. Make a good first impression. The truth is that the first look can make or break your sale. Potential buyers have already judged your house before they walk in the door—and in today’s market, they’ve even made judgments before that when they saw photos online! Therefore, put in the work to get high-quality, professional photos, as well as improve your curb appeal. This can be as easy as mowing the lawn and putting in fresh flowers.
