Winter chill shouldn't freeze home selling!
The colder months may be considered the off-season for real estate, but they can also present a great opportunity to play up a home's winter-friendly features. Texas REALTORS® answered the question What tips do you have for selling a home during the winter months? on the association's Facebook page.
The responses ranged from specific ...
• "Maintaining the front and back lawn is important. Leaves should be raked regularly, drives and walkways should be swept and hosed down, and keep shrubs/vines neat." Kristen M. Parker, Parker Company Real Estate, Houston
• "Curb appeal is No. 1, then make sure when clients walk in there is a great smell of apples and cinnamon, a cozy fire going in the fireplace ... " Debbie Bowden, Story Real Estate Group, Mexia
... to general
• "Understand that only the most serious buyers will be setting appointments, so be sure that yours is priced the best and staged for the best showings." DiAnne Arnette, Keller Williams Realty, Fort Worth
• "The same tips you have for the spring, summer, and fall months!" Warren Marshall, John Horton Realty, Austin
Ueckert Realty agrees with all of the above! Wintertime is not when people are window shopping or tire kicking. They are serious buyers, so a home seller should take every oportunity, clean every corner, rake every leaf, make the home look and smell immaculate to take advantage of a time when the market is not so flooded with owner-occupied, show-ready homes on the market. Call Kristen Ueckert at 817-422-3322 anytime to schedule an appointment to buy or sell in the DFW area!
