Winter Styling Hacks

Get prepared this Winter!

Winter Styling Hacks

  1. Use winter staging tricks. The aim is to create an atmosphere of comfort and warmth. Turn heaters on during open inspections, place warm blankets on couches or beds and set a candle - help the buyer visualise snuggling in this winter.       
  2. Protect the interior of the home. Wet weather often equals muddy tracks, wet umbrellas and disgruntled buyers. Provide an umbrella stand and a welcome mat to prevent dirt being bought in. That way, they can leave the weather at the door and get on with picturing themselves in their new home!
  3. Use lighting to your advantage.  On darker days with low natural light, make the most of your artificial light, turning on lamps and lighting fixtures. Use mirrors to help reflect light across the room and open up the space.
  4. Fix those windows. Get windows winter ready by caulking up any holes or gaps, to prevent cold air getting in and warm air getting out. Not only will this help keep the home lovely and warm for opens, but will also be kinder to your power bill! 
  5. Don't forget your outdoor areas!  No one wants to see a once beautiful outdoor setting miserable and drenched. If you don't have an undercover area, store your outdoor essentials (mowers etc) away. This level of care reflects a loved and respected home, making it more attractive to potential buyers. 
  6. People still buy homes in Winter. A serious buyer, which is what you want for your property, will come to an open inspection regardless of the weather. With reduced stock on market, your home will have less to compete with.
