Holidays and Winter Weather Lie Ahead.

Yes the holidays are upon us once again and so my annual advice for listing homes in the holidays and winter months is due. I have said many times that the Holidays can be a good time to sell because often competing properties are either delayed until January or withdrawn for mt eh Markey until after the holidays. Buyers tend to be serious during this period of time as do sellers, so it's a good time for both buyers and sellers.

During this period of mid-Fall sellers need to be sure to keep the leaves clear on the driveway and walkways leading to the house. Be sure to keep rain gutters clear as well to avoid clogged downspouts that back up water and leave a wet dripping mess for your would be buyers. Leaving the nice leaves with their Autumn hues on the lawn is fine, but make sure your clean them up when they start to turn brown or get mushy. That which is beautiful can quickly become an eye-sore. 

As the season progresses and we start seeing winter weather, be sure to keep the driveway and walkways clear of snow and other debris that accumulates after big storms. You want your listing to be enticing and you don't want to lose out on a potential buyer because they feel they can't traverse the slippery surfaces that can arise in Autumn and Winter.
