Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

Winter has arrived. Nobody wants to move when they have to trudge through the snow and shovel their way in to unload furniture. Don’t be so sure about that. With fewer properties on the market, your home can stand out to buyers and be positioned for a quick sale. Fewer listings means less competition.

From a selling standpoint, this is in your favour. From a buyer’s perspective, your search is a lot simpler. Rather than sorting through a dozen properties, you can get to the heart of the matter quickly. There is less confusion and the details of your property search are clearer.

There are also the perks of seeing how your potential home stands up in harsh conditions. No snow on the roof? Is this due to poor insulation and heat loss? Are there cold zones in the home that might indicate the furnace is not working optimally? You would be surprised at how shopping for a home in winter can identify critical features about a home.

So whether you are thinking of listing your home or are in the market for a move, don’t shy away from flurries and snowbanks. Wintertime can be a perfect time for finding the warmth of home and hearth and translate into a cozy sale.
