Start with the exterior and clear a path


This will be the first tip an agent can give you. As with any time of the year, make sure that your home looks well maintained and cared for. Just like trimming the lawn in the summer, you should keep the snow and ice at bay in the winter. If a potential buyer can’t get easily (or if he even falls), then expect that the house won’t sell. Always, always make sure that the walkways are safe. Curb appeal is very important, first impressions last!
