Selling your house in the winter definitely is possible. There may be fewer buyers but the ones truly looking really want (or even need) to buy right now.
This infographic by Veterans United has some valid tips and suggestions. As a professional home stager, I get asked about winter selling all the time. Yes, warm, cozy and bright is important. Remember it is dark early. Sometimes a buyer wants to see your house after work. Make sure your front porch light is on and that the rooms have all their lights on.
One of the quickest and best ways to update your home and stage it to sell is with paint. Nothing can transform a room as quickly as color, but be sure when you are staging your home to stick to neutrals, so you appeal to the widest range of buyers possible.
But neutral doesn’t have to mean boring! Neutrals include earth tones like warm chocolate, or cooler colors like modern gray. Blues are particularly appealing in a bedroom or bath. And even a pop of red or orange can really make a room shine.
But if choosing a color palette still has you a little baffled, contact me at email@example.com and we can arrange a personal color palette consultation to find the perfect palette for your home!

For this Pin of the Week, I want to show you this brilliant solution to the asymmetrical window. Hanging window treatments to hide the true location of the window really works well. This is an excellent example of how "pretty costs the same as ugly". It costs the same to hang the curtains in the correct location as it does to hang them wrong and make the problem worse. #windowtreatments, #decoratingadvice
