How to ensure buyers are comfortable at open houses during winter

Baby it's cold outside
  • Keep the property looking easy to maintain by shoving the driveway and walk.
  • Place a chair near the door so people have a place to sit while they take their boots off.
  • Be sure to leave lights on so no one walks into a dark room post daylight savings.

Winter makes doing most anything more complicated. The simple act of going to see a home on the market is harder when there is snow, rain, freezing temperatures and wind. During the summer you might just grab your keys and go, arrive at the house, walk right in the front door, maybe kick off your flip-flops and start the tour.
