Spring is typically considered to be the busiest season in the real estate market. But according to a recent report, homes listed for sale in the fall are more likely to sell within six months than those listed in the spring and in the summer. What’s more, compared to homes listed in other seasons, the houses that are listed in the winter spend six to eight fewer days on the market.
If you’re planning to list your home during the fall or the winter, you may need to adjust your strategy to keep buyers interested. Here are some ways to appeal to homebuyers if you’re waiting until things cool off to sell your house.
When you’re selling a home in the fall or the winter, buyers are more likely to pay attention to your HVAC system and whether the windows in your house are insulated. Changing your air filters and weatherstripping your doors and windows is important if you don’t want buyers to be concerned about staying warm.
You may also want to consider having your chimney cleaned and inspected if you have a fireplace. If you want to go all out, you could think about making your windows and doors more energy efficient or replacing your HVAC system entirely if you’ve had it for a while.
Yellow grass and piles of leaves probably won’t add much in terms of curb appeal. While there’s not much you can do about those kinds of things, there are ways to give the outside of your house some personality.
If you’ve got a front porch, for example, you could spruce it up with some new rocking chairs or seasonal decorations. And if you want to highlight your home’s best features, you can include pictures of how it looks in the spring or the summer in your online listing.
When it’s chilly outside, it’s important to make buyers feel warm in more ways than one. Aside from keeping your thermostat at a comfortable level, it’s a good idea to make your home seem inviting.
Adding decorative touches like candles or natural accents like pine cones can make buyers feel at home. Covering your living room and kitchen walls with a warm (but neutral) paint color can also heat things up.
The fall and winter months are associated with certain smells and flavors (think: pine needles, cinnamon, peppermint and pumpkin pie). Beyond setting the mood with decorations, you could try appealing to buyers’ senses in multiple ways.
For example, if you’re hosting an open house you could keep hot chocolate and pumpkin muffins on hand for visiting buyers. If you don’t want to go that far, keeping a scented candle burning in the background or playing some holiday music can work wonders.
During the fall and winter months, it’s particularly important to avoid setting your listing price too high. If there are fewer homes on the market, you’ll have less competition. But if your asking price seems expensive or unaffordable, you could scare away potential buyers.
Before listing your home, it’s a good idea to find out what similar homes in your area are selling for. That way, you can pick an appropriate asking price.

One of the many great things about living in Landfall is the proximity to the many restaurants and to the nightlife in downtown Wilmington. One of the most popular downtown attractions is The Wilson Center at Cape Fear Community College. This new, riverfront venue is already being recognized as the premier performance facility in Southeastern North Carolina.
Two of our favorite musicals are headlining the Wilson Center stage this holiday season – Annie on Sunday, November 20 followed by Elf on Wednesday and Thursday, December 14-15. Also coming to the Wilson Center are performances of Schubert and Mozart by the Wilmington Symphony on November 12; Mannheim Steamroller Christmas by Chip Davis on Thursday, November 29; and Wilmington’s own City Ballet production of A Carolina Nutcracker, a homegrown version of Tchaikovsky’s immortal classic, on Saturday and Sunday, December 3-4.
In addition, the NC Symphony will pay a visit to the venue, performing Holiday Pops on December 22.
Located on the riverfront campus of Cape Fear Community College, The Wilson Center features a 1500-seat main hall, a 600-seat outdoor conservatory, and a 108-seat studio/blackout theatre. Landfall Realty was a proud supporter of the Wilson Center Capital Campaign in 2014.
