Make A Good Impression: 4 Tips For Selling Your Home In The Winter In Washington DC

#1. Stay on top of the shoveling

Snow and ice can build up. If you get a house showing, you’d rather just grab your wallet and keys and leave the house instead of having to dig a path to the front door for the potential buyers. So stay on top of the shoveling and chip the ice and snow away from the door so your potential buyers can safely get in your house.

#2. Keep a mat by the front door

In the summer you may not care if potential buyers walk through your home with their shoes on. But if you get snow in your area then you may not want them doing that. So keep a mat by the front door when selling your house during the holidays so your potential buyers have a place to put their shoes.

#3. Decorate for a friendly holiday

During the winter season, different cultures have different celebrations. Avoid appealing to one holiday tradition while alienating another. Instead, decorate for winter with wreaths, snowmen, and other neutral, family-friendly decorations to make your house feel festive and welcoming to all.

#4. Clear off your best outdoor features

If you get snow, it can cover up some of the highlights in your yard that could be attractive to buyers. A heavy snowfall, for example, could cover a deck, patio, or pond. Take the time to keep your best lawn features cleared of snow to highlight these selling points.
