Why Green Photos Can Make or Break a Winter Listing

Today, I’d like to go over some of the ways you can prepare your home if you plan on selling in winter or early spring.

What are green photos? Well, it’s basically exactly what it sounds like.

Buyers in today’s marketplace want to know what the yard looks like during summer or fall. This is impossible to show in the winter unless you have photographers come out and take some photos while things are still green.

So, if you plan on listing in the winter or early spring, it’s incredibly important that you have these photos taken beforehand. If you reach out to us, we’d be more than happy to help you schedule a session with a professional photographer.

There are some other ways you must prepare your home before winter, as well.

Right now, a third of the buyers in our market are using FHA or VA loans for financing. This is great, but there are some inspection components that these particular loans carry with them. Peeling paint, roof problems, and other exterior issues are all common in the later months of the year.

"Preparing things ahead of time is the best way to plan for a sale in the winter or early spring." 

These are things that inspectors are going to pay close attention to, and are very hard to take care of in the dead of winter. Rather than complicating things later on, these things are best taken care of now before winter hits. Preparing things ahead of time is the best way to plan for a sale in the winter or early spring.

If you have any other questions or would like more information, feel free to give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
