Real Estate

  • Written by First National Real Estate



It has long been believed a summer real estate sale reaps the most rewards, but winter can be just as profitable for sellers.

Whilst the number of homes for sale tends to decrease during the colder months and there are fewer buyers about, people either buying or selling are in the marketplace for serious reasons, tend to be more decisive, and they’re potentially willing to pay more to get deals done when faced with fewer choices amongst homes for sale.  Despite there being fewer homes for sellers to compete with, homeowners should still invest in making their home shine in winter. 

First National Real Estate’s Chief Executive Officer Ray Ellis’ top tips to make your home hot property during this winter:

Take away the chill of winter by accessorising with an earthy colour palette of autumn pinks, olive greens and burnt oranges 

Rug up a room by covering concrete or tiled surfaces and add soft textures of wool knits and mohair 

Light up your home by pulling up the blinds and ensure lights, including lamps in all rooms, are on 

Heat your home ahead of your open house so it is cosy and warm for potential buyers 

The winter weather can play havoc on the façade of your home – wipe down windows as rain shows up grime, and clear pathways of leaves 

Ensure drains and gutters are maintained so that rain water washes away quickly 

Show off outdoor spaces with gas heating or a fire pit as well as comfy cushions scattered around entertaining areas 

Add some colour to the garden with annuals and plants in bloom to take away from the bleakness of winter 

Pop a welcome mat outside the front door – not only will it protect any carpeted areas, it will show prospective buyers of your property you care about your home and its future occupants
