Here Scott shares a great tip on How to Maximize Your Selling Potential During Winter:


Some say winter is the worst time to sell a home. Given the cold and stormy weather we have been experiencing, there are definitely challenges, but don't be discouraged. First impressions and lasting impressions are key to progress potential buyers into active buyers. Be very wary as the slightest discomfort or issue can sour this experience and turn a buyer away from your home, but by addressing a few key areas, any winter woes can be easily avoided. Here are five simple tips to maximize the showing potential of your home during the winter months.



1. Don't Let Winter be an Obstacle It’s storming or just post-storm, but you have showings booked for your home. (You must have motivated buyers to go out in that weather!) Don't make it even more of a chore for them, be sure to shovel your drive or walkway so that the first impression is a clean and accessible entry. Buyers have been known to turn away, rather than hike to the doorway in knee deep snow and risk snow in their shoes, wet pants, and wet socks.

2. Consider Your Home’s Temperature Remember, buyers are usually viewing more than one home at a time, and thus traveling around and running in and out of cars or up and down elevators in condos. Typically they will be dressed for the great outdoors, so although having the heat way up is great for lounging on the couch, it can be oppressive for visiting buyers. Be sure to monitor the temperature of the entire house and set it appropriately.

3. Get Buyers Out of the Dark and Into the Light The winter months also mean shorter days and less natural light. Be sure to have adequate lighting in every room. Dark rooms are depressing when coming in from the cold. Keep it bright in the winter. Some may object for energy saving reasons, but it is best to leave all the lights on before showings or use timers. This allows you to set the mood lighting, and saves the buyers fumbling for light switches. Remember first impressions. Is your home a sanctuary or an oasis from the cold?

4. Preparation is Key Be sure to prepare for those wet and snowy shoes and boots. No one likes having snow and dirt tracked around there home by shoes or wet socks, just as no one enjoys having wet socks and dodging puddles in the doorway. Be sure to have a "Shoes Off" sign. Place an absorbent mat protecting your stone or wood flooring. Be sure to have a shoe tray or appropriate storage area for shoes, not only to avoid the puddles but to show off the organization of your home. Apply this also to winter jackets, hats and scarves. Show functioning and organization by thoughtfully arranged set ups, don't just have outerwear exploding out of closets or haphazardly hanging on hooks or coat racks.

5. Pet-Friendly—and Groomed! If you do own pets, be sure to have the appearance of clean pets…especially dogs. We love our furry friends, but it’s best not to leave those dirty slush-soaked towels and doggy outfits laying around. The last thing you want is the smell of wet dog greeting your buyers at the front door. Scott Dolan is your Trusted Saskatoon Realtor – working hard to find the right fit for you and your family!

Jacqueline Rybchinski said " I would love to nominate our realtor! We listed our house at the beginning of May. We explained to Scott Dolan that we just recently had a baby and we are growing out of our house. We wanted to move quickly but wanted to be sure we got a fair market value for our house. He was sure to research the market for our area. We listed and had a few viewings all of which Scott made sure we had plenty of time to vacate our house always taking into consideration that we have children to pack up. He was dedicated and understood our urgency to get out of our house making sure to have open houses on the weekend for us. Our house was only listed for 3.5 weeks and we had a great offer come our way! All along the way Scott was very helpful in assisting us to find a home to move onto. He understood what was important to us in a new home. He found quite a few suitable listings for us to look at. In the end he helped assist us in finding what we think is our dream home. I can not begin to explain how thankful we are to have had such an amazing realtor! I think that Scott Dolan should be listed on this website as he is a powerful resource for anyone who is in the market to buy or sell a home! He went above and beyond to help us with tge sale of our old house and to help us find our new house! I suggested for a friend to use him and she had her house sold in less than a week. Then he called and thanked me for the referral by giving us a referral gift! It was very thoughtful!"
