This winter looks a bit different from previous ones. Not only did we have temperatures in the 70s over the holidays, but now we’re looking at bitterly cold temperatures including ice and snow for the next week. Western North Carolina is a bit strange like that- but as the area is becoming more and more popular for people to live here, the weird and wonderful weather doesn’t seem to be holding anyone back from moving here.

Today, we’re going to talk about how you can sell your home in the winter time. Winter can be a tough time to sell, but sometimes a situation arises that forces you to sell your home, such as relocating for a new job or an elderly family member needing help and you have to move closer to them. There are many reasons that may make you sell your home this time of year.

Selling in the winter is different than selling in the spring or summer. When the weather is nicer, it’s easier to make your home look it’s very best as the colors and flowers of the warmer seasons are there to help people envision what it may be like to live there. In the winter time, more likely than not, your home may appear to be drab or to not stand out, especially if your home is a muted color. Also, less people may want to come out for a showing due to the colder weather. But never fear, that’s why we’re here to give you some tips for selling your home in the winter.

What began as beautiful, late blooming fall flowers that offered visual interest as summer held on as long as it could, has likely now been replaced by mostly dead or dying plants, a whole lot of brown and maybe some leftover Halloween decorations still hanging up in the trees in your yard. You can do better than that though, and we’ve got some great tips to help you get your home ready for the full swing of the fall season!

Autumn has finally arrived as the last tendrils of summer have released their grip here in Western North Carolina.

It’s no surprise that costs of living are going up.
