It has often been debated, is selling your home in winter a good idea? It's cold, nobody wants to treck through the cold and snow to look at homes?

Winter can actually be an inviting time to sell a home? Living close to the Rocky Mountains means Southern Alberta folk are use to cold, snowy winters and for many this time of year is welcoming. Cozy fireplaces with the smell of cider on the stove. Warmth of a home with the fresh crisp air and for many, outdoor sporting means the home is an inviting place to be.

Here are a few tips to help you make your home more appealing to buyers in the winter months:

1) Turn on the fireplace

2) Put on soft, welcoming music

3) Open the blinds and let in the light (the snow will add a reflection for homes that have less natural light)

4) Bake or put cinnamon sticks in a pot on the stove

5) Turn your bathroom into a "spa like setting"

Some people actually enjoy their homes in the winter and find it to be a peaceful and relaxing place. Make your home a welcoming place to be.
