    We know that anytime you decide to put your house up on the market, it is a big, and potentially, stressfuldecision. Were here to tell you that it doesnt have to be. There have been reports that the winter monthsare especially difficult for the housing market atmosphere, and thats simply untrue. The winter monthssimply offer a different climate, one that must be adapted to, just like anything else. Here are some keytips and tricks to closing a great deal on your home during the winter.

    Maintain Front Exterior

    This is incredibly important. The front of your home is the first thing that potential buyers see. It must betidy and becoming, while also fundamentally inviting. Due to the inclement weather, which is typical forUtah this time of year, maintaining driveways and sidewalks consistently is crucial. This means thatshoveling and salting these areas are suggested to fully show off the property. Depending on the weather,this may be required daily.

    Maximize Light

    It is imperative to use all the natural light you can to show off your home. Artificial light, though necessary,is secondary when natural light is available. Make sure to open all curtains and draperies to assist incascading natural light. A crucial part to this tip is to insure that all the windows are clean. Make sure alllights are operational prior, and turned on, when showing the property. If possible, refrain from showingyour home after nightfall.

    Highlight Conveniences

    Every home has something thats so special and absolutely singular to itself. Sometimes its location, or aspecific appliance or a room that has a particular function. Always mention that when showing the home.Use the winter months to play up any winter sport activities that are practiced nearby. Do you happen tolive by a huge hill that makes midday sledding a joy? Dont leave that tidbit out!

    Appease the Nose

    Its no secret that smell is tied to our memory and our mood. Sometimes we subconsciously forget that, butthis can be the difference between a potential buyer feeling comfortable and at home, or being put off.Stick to filling your home with natural scents rather than anything artificial or from a candle. Things likecinnamon and vanilla work well. They are comforting and a bit nostalgic. If you are going the traditionalbaking route to fill the air with a yummy smell, make sure to have a sampling of the treat for potentialbuyers. Lastly, if you have strange odors or pet smells anywhere in your home, change out those rugs orfabrics and clean those areas completely to eliminate any unpleasant odor.
