Should you sell this Winter?

Should you sell your home this winter.... The quick answer is YES!

While many Homeowners are waiting until Spring to list their home there are advantages to listing Now.

1. Inventory is Historically lower in the Winter meaning you will have less competition.

2. Rates are Historically LOW, this means buyers are eager to buy.

3. Buyers looking at this time of year are typically in a hurry to purchase.

Winter Home Staging

Many of us like to spruce up or homes for the Holidays. Rather you are getting your home ready to sell or you just want to change things up for the winter here are some great ideas:

1. Coffee counter vignettes

Hot coffee and crisp winter weather are a perfect combination! With coffee being the most popular beverage in the world, staging coffee vignettes are a no-brainer. Having a cup of Joe is a morning tradition, and with the rise of in-home consumption and brewing, coffee vignettes speak to the buyer and help them envision a home where they can sit and relax.

Keep it simple! You can anchor your vignette with a tray filled with mugs, a sign, greenery, a coffee press, and whatever else suits your fancy. A coffee vignette will be a small focal point in the kitchen but can make a big impression on buyers.

2. Feature fireplaces

Winter brings out the desire for warmth! Arrange a room so that the fireplace becomes the focal point and will make buyers feel warm and welcome. Help buyers envision themselves living there and kicking their feet up by the fire. Drape a cozy fur or knit throw onto the sofa to add to the ambience.

3. Warmer color palettes

Welcoming warmer color tones into a room sets the stage during the cooler months, too. A color scheme that reflects the changing colors of nature will stand out and create a calming, updated, and inviting vibe to the space. Be creative and don't get locked into only using rich, vivid hues if a neutral color scheme works better.

Brighten up a room with décor by just swapping out pillows, adding texture through accessories, and adding greenery and a mix of patterns. Staging with a mix of lighter and darker hues can make a room come to life, and it doesn't hurt that these colors are on-trend too.
