Home Seller Advice
Just because its wintertime doesnâ€™t mean that itâ€™s not the best time to show your property. Yes, this time of year there are fewer hours of daylight for buyers to see your house. However, in Hampton Roads itâ€™s easier to house-hunt because of itâ€™s warmer in this area of Virginia.
There are some rainy days, but overall we donâ€™t have to deal with much snow or frigid temperatures.Why not highlightÂ whatâ€™s great about your home. Make sure youâ€™re wowing buyers with strong curb appeal. Keep driveways and walkways clear of fallen leaves and snow. Put a nice, new welcome mat out for buyers and their agents to wipe their feet.
The way your home looks tells a story to buyers. A light and bright atmosphere for showings makes the house more inviting. Open the windows to air out the house occasionally as closed homes tend to hold odors. After cooking meals run the fans. There are wonderful scent candles and sprays that can create a memorable atmosphere â€“ like the scent of freshly baked bread or cookies fresh out of the oven. The scent of cinnamon adds a seasonal natural fragrance. Create a comfy scene with a throw blanket. Feel free to contact me with more ideas or questions.
