Keep reading to discover a few more tips that may help you get ready for showings during cold weather months.
When inclement weather strikes, travel can become difficult. Be ready for showings by keeping your driveway and sidewalks clear. You never know when a potential buyer will want to see your home, and first impressions count- even in the winter.
Turn up the Heat
Make sure potential buyers have a comfortable, warm greeting as soon as they walk into your home. By raising the temperature a little bit, you can make people feel more welcome while they are inside your house.
Deep Clean Windows
We recommend doing a deep clean of the windows because you’ll want to show off as much natural light as possible without highlighting dirty glass. Opening blinds and curtains gives a much more open and bright feeling as potential buyers move through the house during a showing.
