Tips on selling your home in the winter

Published 22nd November By Jennie Fundell

Property transactions happen all through the year, but the shorter daylight hours during the autumn/winter months can present a few challenges which wouldn’t occur during the summer lighter months.  

This doesn’t mean you have to wait! If your property is currently on the market or you are thinking of selling now, here are a few tips from our very experienced residential sales teams which will help increase appeal to prospective purchasers.  

Dorking Office
Light brings warmth! If it’s a later viewing put the lights and table lamps on to create a warm cosy feeling.

Oxted Office
Set the scene. Put the heating on and open all curtains to maximise the natural light coming in. No body will be inspired by a cold dark room.  

Horley Office
Plump up your cushions to make the furniture look inviting. Maybe invest in a soft furnishing cleaner or lint roller, depending on the material.  

Reigate Office
It might be an idea to invest in a few reed diffusers or some automatic air-fresheners, as the windows are open less during the colder months. 

Leatherhead Office
If your property has been on for a little while, it is sensible for your agent to refresh their external photographs to reflect the changing season. 

Lettings Team
Creating kerb appeal is really important.  Take a look at your property from the front.  Could the front door do with a fresh coat of paint, perhaps the front hedge could do with a trim, maybe sweep up the fallen leaves or pull up the weeds poking through the drive. Now is a really good time to give the front windows a wash.  

These small improvements have a very big impact, not only for prospective purchasers, but also for marketing purposes.  If you need some inspiration take a look through some home and interior magazines or do a quick internet search. 

If you need our help or advice, we’d love to discuss the marketing of your home.
