In many areas of the country, this winter has been epic. Record-breaking snow has stalled the start of the eagerly-anticipated spring real estate market since conventional wisdom dictates waiting for crocuses to bloom before listing your home.

However, this winter wonderland can be the ideal time to sell. With inventory levels remaining low, fewer homes on the market means less competition and better visibility from prospective buyers. Remember, buyers looking in frigid temperatures are not casual window shoppers!

Here are 3 tips to sell your home this winter in Las Vegas:

Clear a path – Shovel snow and spread sand and salt to provide easy and safe access into the home. Make sure visitors can safely park and walk to the front door. Eliminate blind spots for access in and out of the driveway.

Keep the heat up! – Nothing feels better than coming in from frost-biting cold into a warm and cozy house. Light the fireplace and candles (as long as they aren’t overly scented) for inviting ambiance. Buyers just might stay longer!

Protect the floors – Place a fresh door mat outside and inside the front entry. Provide an area (with seating for those unable to balance like a stork) to remove shoes. A polite printed sign asking all visitors to comply will ensure cooperation.

Ready, willing and able buyers are looking now. If buyers need to buy, you are better off successfully negotiating an offer today before the spring market is flooded with new inventory and you are yesterday’s news.
