5 Home Staging Ideas That Work Wonders During Winter

home staging in the winter

While a winter home sale isn’t usually recommended, it is sometimes necessary. And, with a little preparation and some home staging, you could sell your home quickly for top-dollar value! What home staging tips work in the winter? The following will work wonders:

Curb appeal
Rake the leaves and add a fresh coat of paint to the exterior. Keeping up with the exterior shows buyers the home has been well-maintained and is in good condition.

Turn up the heat
To save money, many homeowners set their thermostat in the 60s during the winter months. However, that is not a good plan when selling your home. Turn up the heat to the 70s to make buyers feel like they’re right at home.

Fire up the fireplace
There’s nothing better than a fire during the damp and cold winter months. With that in mind, fire up your fireplace during home showings – only with your agent’ supervision, of course!

Add seasonal scents
From peppermint to cranberries and fresh balsam, the winter season is full of enticing and welcoming scents. When your home is on the market, bring the scents of the season to life in your home by mulling seasonal spices on the stove, baking fresh holiday cookies, lighting seasonal candles and more.

Add tasteful holiday decor
While you don’t want to go overboard, it isn’t a bad idea to add some holiday decor. Professionals recommend a big wreath on the front door, candles (electric or battery-operated) in the windows and other tasteful items. Try to avoid blow-up decorations or anything too over-the-top.
