Make Your Home Hot Property in Winter

Wednesday 24 Jun 2020

It has long been believed a Summer real estate sale reaps the most rewards, but Winter can be just as profitable for sellers. Whilst the number of homes for sale tends to decrease during the colder months and there are fewer buyers about, homeowners should still invest in making their home shine in winter.

First National Browns Plains Principal, Noel Thompson, offers a list of top tips to make your home hot property this Winter:

•  Take away the chill of winter by accessorising with an earthy colour palette
•  Rug up a room by covering concrete or tiled surfaces and add soft textures of wool knits and mohair
•  Light up your home by pulling up the blinds and ensure lights are on in dim rooms
•  Heat your home ahead of your open house so it is cosy and warm for potential buyers
•  Trees and plants will be dropping leaves all over the place - make sure you clear pathways and gutters before an open home
•  Show off outdoor spaces with gas heating or a fire pit as well as comfy cushions scattered around entertaining areas
•  Add some colour to the garden with plants that bloom all year long to take away from the bleakness of winter
•  Pop a welcome mat outside the front door – not only will it protect any carpeted areas, it will show prospective buyers of your property you care about your home and its future occupants
