Staging a home to sell in Albuquerque during the winter can be a bit different than other times of the year. And since there are fewer homes on the market in winter, this is a great time for you to take advantage of the market.
When you stage your home in the winter, you need to create a warm and comforting environment that will make buyers linger. Here’s a few tips that can make your home feel more inviting to buyers in Albuquerque during the colder months.
Go With the Flow
Make sure that the colors in your home are consistent and flow together. This can create a greater sense of space.
Colors for the Masses
Everyone has their own taste when it comes to colors. So make sure you use more neutral colors like white, gray, and beige wherever possible. You can make the rooms more cohesive by using complementary colors on connecting walls.
No Personal Items
This tip goes for any time of year. You need to pack your items anyways, so go ahead and put away the personal photos. You can replace them with scenic photos if you need something on the walls.
Warmer and Softer
You can use soft throws draped over the end of the sofa or chairs. In the bedrooms, you can throw down a shag rug or a soft comforter on the foot of the bed to make it feel more inviting.
Let There Be Light
Buyers will more likely be viewing your home after dark during the winter, so you need to make sure to turn on all the lights, even during the daytime. You can also add motion detectors that will turn the outside lights on as buyers come to view your home.
Turn Up the Heat
If you turn up the temperature in your home by a few degrees, it can make buyers want to stay longer.
Keep it Simple
You don’t want to have a lot of items lying around that aren’t needed for the sale. Make sure you keep the kitchen uncluttered and with minimal appliances on the counters. You can add a fresh vase of flowers to brighten up the kitchen or dining room.
Selling your home during the winter months in Albuquerque can be a successful investment of your time. Just keep these tips in mind and enjoy the winter home selling months in Albuquerque.
