They found that homes listed in winter have a 9 percent better chance of selling and spend a week less on the market than homes sold in other seasons ― including what most in the business tout as the "spring selling season."
94% of buyers do start their search online for their next home, we want to ensure that even in the winter months, your home still grabs the attention of home buyers. There is no surprise that homes have much better curb appeal during the summer months. Let's be real, snow covered yards and drive ways are not of much interest. So if you are thinking of selling this winter........
We Need to Start Now, though
It's hard to imagine that in just a couple months we'll be adding extra layers of clothes, scraping our windshields and shoveling snow, but it's true.
The one problem with selling your home in the winter, at least for the buyer, is that they have a tough time envisioning what the landscaping will look like when the snow melts. We can remedy this by taking the exterior photos now, while the sky is blue and the grass is green. We call these "green photos" and it's a service we offer our clients at this time of the year.
So, for the next two weeks our professional photographers will be roaming around Calgary & areas, taking exterior photos of our listings that will hit the market in winter and early spring. Sure, we'll include some winter wonderland photos in the marketing materials as well, but just think how your home will stand out as a buyer scrolls through multiple listings online and all of a sudden they see your home and it stands out!
If you think you will be selling, contact us to get your home on the list. We'll take the interior photos later, so this pre-listing photography is easy and convenient and we won't need access to the home's interior.
There's no obligation and never any charge for this service.
Fill out your information below and we'll get you on the list. Space is limited.
