If you’re selling your home in the winter in Michigan, you need to prepare yourself for a challenge.

These tips can make the selling process a little easier, and help you maximize your earnings.

Selling can be a lot of work even at the best of times. There’s the hassle and the headache and the effort. When it comes to the seasons, selling in the winter adds additional work (especially if you live in an area where there’s a lot of snow or bad winter weather).

Fortunately, just because it’s crappy outside doesn’t mean you can’t make a good impression! Read on to learn our top 4 tips for selling your house in the winter in Michigan!

1. Stay on Top of Shoveling

This is an easy one! Adding curb appeal is one of the most important factors for a home sale. Keep your property easy to access and looking prim and proper. Show sellers that you’re focused on maintaining the property on the outside, and they’ll assume you did a great job on the inside as well.

2. Keep a Mat by the Front Door

Encourage your potential buyers to remove their boots or shoes. Simply leaving a mat by the front door will show them you care about maintaining their potential new home, and gives them a place to put their belongings.

3. Decorate for a Friendly Holiday

During the winter season, different cultures have different celebrations. Avoid appealing to one holiday tradition while alienating another. Instead, decorate for winter with wreaths, snowmen, and other neutral, family-friendly decorations to make your house feel festive and welcoming to all. Adding these gives your house a warmth that helps potential buyers feel connected.

4. Clear Off Your Best Outdoor Features

If you get snow, it can cover up some of the highlights in your yard that could be attractive to buyers. A heavy snowfall, for example, could cover a deck, patio, or pond. Take the time to keep your best lawn features cleared of snow to highlight these selling points.

Selling your house in the winter can be a lot of work. You can use these tips to help you keep your home looking appealing. It’s all about showing potential buyers that you care about the property.
