Winter Window Appeal

As winter truly kicks in and the market cools, Cameron Nicholls from Nicholls & Co Estate Agents in Abbotsford shares his tips on how to make a home inviting and warm.

“With clearance rates dropping and stock availability at an all time low. Many properties owners tend to fear a winter sale campaign. However, we believe it’s a great opportunity to present new listings in a competitive buyer market,” said Cameron.

Cameron’s top five tips for enticing potential buyers in the winter market are all focused around the street front windows. His tips include:

1. Bring the outside in: Place indoor plants near the window so when I buyer drives past or looks in the greenery is visible
2. Double glaze windows: This is a must for insulation and creating a cosy home even on the coldest winter day
3. Install curtains: Even if they are just for show, the long draping lines of curtains can create a sense of warmth
4. Invest in a lamp: This can either be a floor lamp or place on a table near the front windows. Make sure you use a soft glow light bulb though
5. Rugs and throws: Position a throw over the side corner of the lounge and place a rug under the coffee table to give that homely feel
