Selling a Home During the Winter

THE ASK KYLE GEENEN SHOW: EP 1

SELLING YOUR HOME IN THE WINTER.

In the first episode of The Ask Kyle Geenen Show, I answer a question I get a lot during this time of year. “Should I list my home for sale during the winter?”

It’s fairly common to for people to believe that no, you shouldn’t list your home in the winter. When in reality, listing your home for sale in the winter has some great advantages!

#1 – FEWER HOMES ARE ON THE MARKET DURING THE WINTER MONTHS IN HOLLAND AND ZEELAND SO YOU WILL HAVE LESS COMPETITION!

We work hard to get as many potential buyers to see your house no matter the time of year. In the winter, your home can fly to the top of the list for buyers since there are fewer homes listed.

When you combine that with my excellent market plan, you are set up to get the most showings and a quick home sale! Again, many people think selling a home during the winter is too hard, let that work to your advantage.

#2 – FAMILIES AND FRIENDS ARE IN TOWN FOR THE HOLIDAYS AND BUYERS LOVE TO GET THEIR INPUT.

Many people love to have their family and friends come to showings as they get closer to putting in an offer on a home. Buying a home is an exciting time and getting the input of your loved ones is important to many potential buyers.

Having your house listed during the holidays makes it easy for buyers to bring along their family to see your house when they are already in town for Christmas and New Year’s.

BONUS TIP – DECORATIONS

When you are selling a home during the winter, and you plan to have it listed over the holidays, keep decorations tasteful and elegant. Holiday decorations can go a long way to making your house feel warm and welcoming, but they can also be an eyesore if they are overdone. So please decorate, just keep decorations tasteful and classic. When it doubt, err on the side of fewer decorations.

SELLING YOUR HOME DURING THE WINTER – YES!

With the mild winter we are having this year in West Michigan, it is a great time to get your exterior photos taken. Even if you aren’t ready to list your home today, get the outside of your house photographed soon before the snow is here to stay. I would love to help with professional photos, just give me a call or text and we can set up a time to not only get those pictures taken but talk about how to create an amazing listing for your home!
