Columbus Ohio real estate

We'll Leave the Light on for You! (And the heat, too)

 

Light is important in Central Ohio too as we get close to the longest night of the year, the Winter Solstice. 

This home staging advice from Diana Young in Seattle is Re-Blogged for Central Ohio home sellers.

 

During these cold, dark winter months in the Seattle area, it is important to welcome prospective buyers to your vacant home.  The exterior lights should be on timers so they are on at dusk and off at day break. 

Interior lamps (not overhead lights) should also be on when it gets dark outside.  We suggest leaving the lamps on 24/7 or put them on timers to go on around 3 p.m. and off about 10 p.m.

Buyers will often drive by your listing prior to scheduling a tour.  If your house looks warm and inviting, a positive first impression has been made.

And remember...keep the temperature comfortable, no lower than 66 degrees.  A cold house will send buyers fleeing back to their warm car!
