Even if not traditionally recognized in the real estate industry, there are many advantages to selling in winter. Conventionally, there are fewer houses on the market which drives up demand amongst buyers. We have seen this occur with real estate median prices in Koondoola, Mirrabooka & Girrawheen for many years. You can also enjoy faster turnaround times on real estate related professional services including inspectors, bank related services such as valuations and loan approvals along with lawyers or solicitor involvement.
Here are a few tips for those of you who are selling over the final month of winter:
1. Focus on creating a warm atmosphere: This can come down to making even small touches and the result can be a significant difference to your home’s overall appeal. Making investments such as new coverings, rugs and cushions in warm shades like brown, red and gold help to evoke a lasting positive impression with prospective buyers. At the Wright Team we assist during the selling process if you are looking to make any decisions to create an atmosphere mentioned above.
2. Seamless outdoor area presentation: It’s easy to neglect outdoor areas in the cooler winter months, but they can be one of your property’s main selling points. Set up an outdoor heater to show buyers that gardens and outdoor areas can still be utilised in winter. Ensure lawns are mowed, hedges and flower beds are neatly trimmed, and the pool is clean and sparkling.
3. Place attention on lighting: Do not allow Indoor areas to be dark in winter when showcasing your home. Despite natural light it’s a common misconception to resist turning on light. Our recommendation when selling your home is to turn on all lights. Take the time to wash and clean windows & leave the blinds open to let as much natural light into the property as possible. We also recommend that leaving the windows open throughout the property, ajar as a minimum depending on temperature, as you do not want it to be too stuffy for those inspecting.
