Selling Northumberland Real Estate in Winter
You decided to sell your Cobourg area house, but it’s middle of winter. We get a winter in Northumberland. Furthermore you’ve been told by your friends and neighbours that, selling in winter months is not a good idea. They are telling you that people don’t want to buy in the Winter in Port Hope because it’s too cold and snowy. You can’t really see all the things that the house has to offer, but maybe those people just don’t like winters.
At Northumberland Home Values Group we see a lot of homes being bought and sold in the Winter.
There are a lot of folks that enjoy colder days and snow and are not afraid to go out and enjoy the fresh, cold weather Perhaps they are transferring to Cobourg, Port Hope or anywhere in Northumberland for a new job. What are you waiting for? There are many ways you can make your home appealing to buyers even on the coldest and darkest days.
We at Northumberland Home Values Group have a few suggestions:
Make Your Home Real Warm
First of all, make your Port Hope house look inviting, warm and cosy by making sure the driveway and walkways are free of snow and ice. You don’t want a lawsuit because a potential buyer slipped and fell right in front of your house.
It gets dark quickly during the winter months all over Northumberland – Grafton, Colborne, Port Hope and Cobourg. Turn all those lights on! Inside and out, for safety and ambiance.
Put a mat, and even a chair in the entrance hall, so buyers can remove their shoes before they go in. Turn all fireplaces on, and if you have wood burning one, throw a nice log on the fire, there is nothing nicer on a cold day than the sound of wood crackling in there.
Put some cider and couple of cinnamon sticks on the stove and let them simmer, it will fill the home with a wonderful aroma.
With all the lights on in the house,( and all the burnt out bulbs replaced) the potential buyers will be able to see well enough and feel comfortable.
Don’t forget that buyers still like to go outside and walk around the house, so perhaps clear a path for them, if possible.
Happy Winter selling from Northumberland Home Values Group!
