Selling in the Colder Months

Selling in the Colder Months

Selling your home in Armidale during the colder months means making sure you highlight your homes warmth factor. Our freezing, zero temperature nights mean gorgeous clear, blue sky days.

If you have a wood fire, get the chimney cleaned to ensure its burning at its hottest and make sure the fire itself is clean – trust me buyers are going to be looking at it. Invest in a really nice wood basket and keep the area spotless.

Wash everything to do with windows – curtains, blinds, outside screens and the window panes. It’s important to allow as much light into your home as possible during winter months.

Dress your home for winter with rugs, blankets and cushions. It’s the equivalent of putting on a warm jumper for your home and it doesn’t have to be expensive. Many of the larger discount stores have great decorating items for not outlay.

Trim back any dead wood in the garden and prune all the summer plants ready for spring. Any vines can be trimmed and tied back also. Again this allows more light into your home and allows the buyers to see a clean and tidy yard. Winter in Armidale means bulbs, lavender, daphne and potted colour. Use pots of these flowers at the entrance to your home and around the BBQ areas.

Don’t think that buyers go into hiding during the colder months – people move all year round for work, family and retirement reasons and this means finding a home to live in.

The team at HH Real Estate all live in different styles of homes. We all have ideas and skills that suit different styles of homes and we all love talking about houses and sharing and swapping ideas about presenting and selling your home.  Come and talk to us in our very coffee friendly office.

My experience with Peter as sales agent was as good as I expected!

Peter was very clear in what I could expect from the sale of my property. He explained any difficulties which might occur, as well as all possibilities. His knowledge and handling of all matters involved was excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to other clients.

During the process of selling our home we felt supported.
The sale occurred more quickly and for the asking price so the presale assessment was very accurate.
