Winter is coming. And with winter, comes darker and colder evenings.
When it is cold outside, open houses might not be as appealing. But it’s important to remember the cozy aspects of the winter season, and how to apply those warm feelings into your showing.
It’s important to keep driveways and walkways clear. If you have to, shovel the areas so the path to the home is safe to walk on. It might be nice to also shovel the sidewalk and part of the street; this way potential clients aren’t having to walk down the block in snow.
Like usual, tidy up the space and remove any clutter. This is where you get to make it feel all warm and cozy to really spark up those fuzzy feelings.
If there is a fireplace, make sure to get a fire going before people start attending. Make sure you’re allowing as much light as possible into the home – whether that’s through the windows, or through light fixtures.
Accentuate sofas or chairs with throw pillows and super comfy plush throws.
Just because winter is upon us, doesn’t mean your sales have to stagnate. Open houses can be incredibly cozy and inviting during the winter months – you just might have to work a little harder at showcasing it.
