Selling A Home In The Winter

The Gabbard Team offers advice for selling a home in the Winter.


World famous groundhog Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow this morning! This means another 6 long weeks of bone chilling Winter. It also means that this is a great time to put your house on the market!

Homes that are listed for sale in the Winter months, particularly December through March, generally sell faster and for more money. This is because a lot of sellers do not take advantage of the Winter market. That means less competition for you when you list your house for sale this Winter. Also, the buyers that are out looking at homes in the dead of Winter are extremely motivated. The people that are house hunting in the cold and snowy months actually need to move, they are not out looking at houses just for fun.

There are a few things that you can do to make your home more marketable during the Winter. The daylight hours are short so you need to maximize the lighting in your home. Clean your windows so they sparkle. Open blinds and curtains and replace light bulbs as necessary. When showings are scheduled, leave the lights on for the potential buyers. Make your home look warm and inviting during the Winter. Have warm throws over the couch or chairs and a nice fire in the fireplace. Lastly, highlight fun perks to living where you do in the Winter. Is there a great ice skating rink or sledding hill nearby? Perhaps you live close to a ski resort?

Take advantage of Punxsutawney Phil’s prediction and put your house on the market this Winter.  Contact Bill Gabbard of the The Gabbard Team to schedule an appointment today. Bill can expertly guide you through the process of listing and selling your house. 513-401-5188
