The Stephanie Coats Real Estate Team has had a very busy winter season! Homes are flying off the market at record speed! 

Here are 3 Reasons why you should sell your home in the winter:
 

1- There is less competition. 

Take advantage of lower housing inventory, and sell before the selling season starts! There are usually fewer homes on the market in winter which means less competition and a better chance of your home standing out to potential buyers.

2- Buyers are motivated! 

The latest Buyer Traffic Report from the National Association of Realtor (NAR) shows that buyer demand remains very strong throughout the vast majority of the country. These buyers are ready, willing, and able to purchase… and are in the market right now! More often than not, multiple buyers are competing with each other to buy a home.

3- Easier to maintain curb appeal!

Curb appeal is intended to attract the buyers who are just driving by as well as those who saw your home online and wanted to see it in-person. It sets the stage for what interested buyers can expect when they step foot in the home during a showing or open house. If you list your home during the peak of the selling season, you may exhaust your time your energy maintaining curb appeal.

When selling your home in the winter, staging the inside becomes even more important. Here are five simple tips to make your home shine even when the outside landscaping has faded:

Keep your house warm. In the winter people tend to turn the thermostat down to save money, however a warmer house is more welcoming to a potential buyer.

Clear the walkways and driveways of any yard debris. Make it easy for buyers to get to your home.

Clean the windows and blinds. Letting in the natural light can brighten up a room and cheer up the home. This also brings attention to the windows and blinds so make sure they are clean even during winter.

Leave the lights on. Before showing a home, make sure it's well lit. A well lit home is more inviting. If you're not home, consider setting up timers.

Following these simple tips can give your house that added boost in today's market. For information on selling in our local market, please contact us for a free market analysis of recent neighborhood activity. We are more than happy to answer any questions you might have!
