Selling Your Home in the Winter May Not Be So Bad
Thinking of selling your home in the winter months? You might be pleasantly surprised to hear the season that’s received a “bad rap” for home sales isn’t so bad after all. Let’s take a look at the advantages of selling your home in the winter.


There are no “seasons” when it comes to the internet. That’s right, the majority of buyers begin their home search online. When the weather outside is frightful… online home searches are so delightful! The use of the internet for home searches actually increases with wintry weather. Pro tip: make sure your home’s photography and virtual tour shine.

Buyers are serious. Many employee relocations take place at the end and the beginning of the year, and that means serious buyers are out in full-force. Winter buyers are working against a deadline, whether it’s a relocation, lease expiration, or contract on their current home. Pro tip: if you list your home during the winter, work to accommodate as many showings as possible in order to expose your home to as many buyers as possible.

Where did all the competing homes go? Some home sellers remove their home from the market during the holidays. Buyers have fewer homes from which to choose, and that means your home has an even better chance to shine above the rest. Pro tip: don’t be afraid to get festive with your home staging. Ensure that your home is warm and welcoming to buyers coming in from the cold.

Mr. Taxman is coming! Winter buyers may also be motivated to capture the tax benefits of buying a home before the end of the year, including writing off certain expenses associated with a home purchase. Pro tip: winter is a great time to buy or sell a home.
