It’s definitely looking and feeling like true winter in Omaha this month! Don’t be discouraged, though, you can still sell a home at this time of year.

Winter is actually a favorite time of year for many people. Warm beverages, fires in the fireplace and the scenic beauty of glistening white snow can make this time of year delightful! However, if you’re planning to sell your house, winter might seem like the worst time to sell!

4 Tips on Staging Your House for a Winter Sale in Omaha

#1. The weather outside might be frightful…

… but the inside of your home can be so delightful! Despite the deep and bitter cold Omaha is experiencing now on this Valentine’s Day weekend 2021, there are ways to create a warm and comforting environment for people coming to see your home. In fact, people often associate winter with warm, welcoming homes. This is exactly what many buyers are looking for – a welcoming place they can call home! So when you stage your home in winter, make it feel like they’re there just in time for a winter beverage or treat around a cozy fire. And keep your thermostat at a pleasant temperature, and they’ll be happy as they stroll through your home.

#2. Fireplaces create a sense of comfort and warmth …

Not every home has a fireplace but if yours does, you may want to highlight it as an ideal place to provide a warm and comforting conversation. Buyers will love how warm and inviting your home is with embers still smoldering or the gas flames flickering in the fire place while they tour the house. You really want them to envision themselves sitting there in your living room or family room, so creating beautiful conversational spaces can be very beneficial when staging for sale.

#3. Seasonal decorations …

One of our favorite shops for beautiful home decor items in Omaha is Mulhall’s. When selling your home, you want buyers to picture themselves living in the house , and nothing is more seasonally inviting than a decorated tree at Christmas time, or a few pretty Valentines Day decorations to add elegance and timeliness in February, or even some St. Patrick’s Day décor in March! You can add a few special touches that help potential buyers picture their family in the home. Seasonal decorations are often one way to achieve this. Omaha has a lot of wonderful shops and greenhouses like Mulhall’s, which can provide you with lots of creative ideas!

#4. Excellent Listing Photographs …

There are some potential buyers who don’t want to venture out in the cold to look at properties. One way you can help them know more about your home is to provide excellent marketing photos to accompany your listing. Think about what people are most interested in seeing – kitchen, baths, common areas, basements etc. and work with a realtor who truly values good photography and can help you present your home in the best light possible. Be sure the rooms look clean and organized. Think about what you’d like to see if you were buying a home. Good photography will help people take note of your home and come out to visit it as soon as the temperatures warm up a bit. You want your home to be at the top of their list when the time comes!
