Is Winter a Good Time
to Sell Your Home?
Real Estate • January 2021
Yellow house and snow
As the leaves fall from the trees and winds turn colder, you might think home buyers are less interested in searching for a new property. However, that’s not necessarily the case. Selling your home during winter is a good option for many homeowners. From business professionals looking to relocate for a new job opportunity to growing families wishing to upsize, buyers are still active in desirable markets.

During the winter months, the same rules for home selling success apply – and perhaps become even more important. Here are a few reminders to prepare your home for the winter season and get it sale ready.
  • Neat and tidy – Take the opportunity (especially before the holidays) to tidy up your home. Declutter by donating toys that children no longer use. Clean in those often-overlooked places, such as dusting ceiling fans and window blinds.
  • Maintenance matters – The changing seasons are the perfect time to handle home maintenance. Replace furnace filters, change the batteries in your smoke detectors and store window screens in a cool, dry place.
  • Curb appeal – Curb appeal is still important in the winter months. Pick up leaves, clear snow from walkways and put away summer garden tools.
If you’re thinking of selling your home, you want to work with an agent who can provide you with all the options at your disposal.

KIKO Realtors, Auctioneers & Advisors have been helping clients reach their buying and selling goals since 1945. We offer traditional for sale listings as well as real estate auctions. Sellers can choose the best option to meet their needs.

By listing your home with a professional Realtor, you can take full advantage of their marketing resources. At KIKO, we use the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) to expose your property to other realtors; take advantage of internet marketing and social media sites like Facebook to find active home buyers; and draw interest through signage and professional photography and drone videos.

By choosing a real estate auction, sellers can take advantage of exclusive benefits. First, they can control the terms of the sale by setting the auction date and time. The house can be sold “as is” with no contingencies – a definite plus when time is at a premium.

If you’re handling an estate settlement (such as selling a parent’s home), an auction is the best way to divide interest to the owners/beneficiaries. Plus, the accelerated marketing and competitive bidding of an auction can work to the seller’s advantage.
Call KIKO today to explore all your selling options and come up with the best plan for you.
