Staging Your Home For Sale This Winter

 

With the shifting market comes a renewed push in the area of staging homes to sell. Along with the basics, winter comes with extra opportunities to impress buyers. 

The following is a short list of our recommendations for listing your home for sale. Speak with our team today for a more in depth plan to showcase your home at its best. 

 

1. Paint Colors

Buyers want to envision their new lives in your home. A beautiful neutral palate will allow the prospective buyers to picture their furniture, artwork and decor in your space. 

Our favourite neutrals this season are Benjamin Moore’s Simply White and Sherwin Williams Natural Linen.

 

2. Decluttering

Along with a nice neutral palate, decluttering your personal belongings can really help a prospective buyer see themselves living in your home. Pre-packing or decluttering can also help ease the stress of your own move by getting some of the work out of the way in advance of the busy showing and selling process. We recommend packing away all personal photographs and souvenirs as well as any extra furniture that you won’t be needing during the sale of your home.  

 

3. Seasonal Decor

While we do not recommend decorating your home for the holiday’s in the midst of listing it for sale. The colder seasons do offer the opportunity to add some cozy furnishings to the space which prospective buyers will love. We suggest layering the space with rugs and cozy throws, plenty of lamps and soft lighting and adding some light seasonal scents. 

 

Also, don’t forget the temperature. Vacant homes can get chilly this time of year so make sure to turn on the heat for all showings.
