With the average home price in Shasta County being $320,000 for January, choosing to list your home now can work to you advantage in more ways then one. While Spring is still the hottest home buying season, serious home buyers are always on the lookout. Conveniently checking out the latest listings online from the comfort of their home. Buyers do the bulk of their home searches online, and that's especially true when the weather outside is not so cheerful. Come spring sellers will flood the market and your home will be just another fish in a great big pond. But, right now you've practically got the market to yourself. Its easier to make your house feel like a home in the winter time, and nothing says welcome quite like walking out of the cold into a nice warm cozy house.
Here are a few tips for setting the buying mood:
-Keep it simple. Decorations should accent, not over power a room. Think less is more.
-Crank up the cozy. Light a fire, play soft music, and prepare fresh baked goods or mulled cider for guest.
-Shine a light outside. Winter days get dark early, brighten your home's exterior with outdoor spot lights.
