Now that the fall season is in full swing this also means the winter in Kelowna is not far behind, But that doesn’t mean you can’t sell your home or condo in Kelowna. Some home sellers choose not to list their home in the winter and put their house up on the Kelowna real estate market, but there are a few advantages to selling during the winter.
Here are few tips to help make the sale this winter:
Turn on the lights
Daylight doesn’t last as long in the winter months and it can sometimes be quite dark during those hours, so you will want to keep your home nice and bright for the potential buyers. Make sure all the rooms and closets throughout the house are well lit.
Warm & Comfortable Atmosphere
The winters in Kelowna may not be as extreme as some cities and provinces, but it still does get cold, especially for people driving around viewing Kelowna real estate for sale. So make sure you stage your home to be warm and comfortable. These buyers will love to get out of the cold and stick around in your warm and cozy home, so make sure you have the heat on well before the viewers arrive.
Make sure that before your viewers show up, that you shovel the driveway and all walkways. The exterior of your home is the first thing potential buyers see, and you don’t want it covered in snow when they arrive. Also make sure to put salt down so that you don’t have anyone slipping and potentially hurting themselves when the walk up to the house.
During the winter months buyers are not anticipating having to pay a lot of money in the Kelowna real estate market, so make sure you and your realtor list your home at fair market value. Get your home inspected and evaluated by your realtor before you list, so you know exactly what to list for.
Those are just some of the things you need to do when preparing your Kelowna house for sale this winter. For more information and your real estate needs contact Matt Ranger today.
