Sellers: Time to Shovel that Snow!

We've had three days straight of snow here in the Danbury, Connecticut area .  In New Fairfield, I have over 18 inches of snow in my yards. 

Today I'll be taking another look at a waterfront home for buyers of mine.  It has a number of steps down to the front door.  The home is unoccupied. 

Will I be able to access the front door today?  Probably not without my snow skis... 

Sellers, it's time to get out and shovel. 

  • Clear the steps. 
  • Clear the walkways. 
  • Clear a path around the perimeter of your home. 
  • Make sure the front entry is accessible and safe.

You really don't want someone falling and hurting themselves at your home...I'm sure that will bias their opinion against buying your home! 

This time of year, exterior curb appeal is just as important as it is in the summer.
Sellers are supposed to make sure their lawns are mowed and all landscaping is neat and trimmed.
It's no different in the winter.  Make sure the snow is cleared out so buyers can enjoy the beauty of the snow rather than seeing what a hassle getting into your home can be.
