The temperatures have dropped and there’s no doubt about it, winter is nearly here in Chetek WI! However, that shouldn’t stop you from selling your property and moving on to your next dream home just in time for the new year. There are still plenty of ways to help find a buyer for your home during these colder months and as your local experts, we’ve outlined a few of them for you below!
If you’re selling your Chetek WI home this winter, here are 5 helpful tips for staging your property and grabbing buyer interest!
Add winter decor
There is no harm in adding winter decor to boost your property’s curb appeal, just make sure it is simple and classic. Aim for a holiday wreath or greenery outdoors, clear shoveled pathways, and even a few strands of white lights. And of course, it’s always nice to freshen up the exterior with a fresh coat of paint for your front door.
Create a warm atmosphere
Once buyers are inside, you’ll want to create a warm, inviting atmosphere— that begins with turning up the heat! Now is not the time to turn down the thermostat in an attempt to save on your heating bill, or at least not when buyers are present. You’ll also want to take care to seal up any drafts around windows or doors.
Start the fireplace
If you have a fireplace in your Chetek WI home, highlight it! Buyers will love seeing a fire lit this time of year and it also adds to that warm atmosphere mentioned above. No matter if it’s wood-burning or gas, you’re helping to fuel buyer visions of entertaining and making holiday memories.
Try a seasonal scent or music
It’s always best to keep the scents subtle when selling your Chetek WI home, but during the winter, aim for notes of evergreen or cinnamon to warm up the place. You might even want to turn on light, seasonal tunes when buyers are touring your property, something like holiday jazz or classic holiday carols are a safe bet for creating an overall holiday mood.
Set the holiday table
While you won’t want to get carried away with holiday decor indoors when selling your Wisconsin home, setting the table for festive gatherings can go a long way for today’s buyers. By doing so, they will be able to envision themselves hosting friends and family in the dining room or in your kitchen. Consider placing a seasonal arrangement on the table or on an island if your kitchen offers one.
