6 Things You Need to Be Sure Are in Tip-Top Shape for Winter Selling in Temecula CA

Winter selling in Temecula CA presents some unique challenges that aren’t as critical for selling in other seasons.

Beyond the challenges of presenting your house in an appealing way during the winter, there are some functional matters you must see to – that is, some things you need to be sure are in tip-top shape.

6 Things You Need to Be Sure Are in Tip-Top Shape for Winter Selling in Temecula CA

1. Price

Although the price may seem out of place among the things that follow, it does, nevertheless, need to be in tip-top shape for winter selling. Winter is a slower market for real estate than other seasons, so you may have to adjust your sale price accordingly. Sure, the asking price is nearly always lower than the actual sale price, but during the winter, you may have to reduce that difference.

2. Roof

With all the winter rain, snow, sleet, and ice the season bring, potential buyers, are going to be extremely roof-conscious. So for winter selling in Temecula, you’ll definitely have to make sure the roof is in tip-top shape.

Snow and ice are worse culprits than rain when it comes to leaks. They sit on the roof for long periods and slowly melt where they meet the roof. Then if your roof is damaged or missing shingles anywhere, that slow melt-off gets under the shingles and works its way down and into the house. Any water stains on ceilings or walls will be a tip-off to buyers that the roof isn’t in tip-top shape.

3. Heating System

Also for winter selling in Temecula, you’d better be sure the heating system is functioning at an optimal level. On those cold, blustery days, this is one thing buyers will be highly attuned to.

Replacing all old filters with new ones is a good first step. Then, because the heating system is one thing winter buyers will be certain to thoroughly check out, it might be a could idea to call in an HVAC professional to go over the system from top to bottom. Just don’t skimp here – it could mean the difference between closing or not.

4. Thermostat

While technically part of the heating system, many times sellers don’t even think about the thermostat when ensuring the heating system is in tip-top shape. Even if the heating system is working perfectly, a cheap or poorly working thermostat can make it seem otherwise.

For example, if the furnace seems to kick on and off too frequently, it could be a thermostat issue. Or if the house seems to get entirely too cold before the furnace comes on, a cheap or faulty thermostat could be the culprit. Again, a thermostat issue like this could be a red flag for buyers.

5. Outside Lighting

While not so important during milder seasons with longer days, outside lighting takes on a lot more importance for winter selling in Temecula. Strategically placed and properly functioning outside lighting will not only display your house in the most appealing way but will ensure buyers’ safety as well. So check all those bulbs and make sure walkways and entry areas are well lit.

6. Gutters and Downspouts

As with the roof, winter buyers will keep a keen eye on these too. They will be looking for gutters clear of leaves, twigs, and other debris and with no tell-tale drips from the underside. They will also want to see downspouts freely draining the runoff from the roof.

Winter selling in Temecula may take a little more preparation than summer selling, but it can still be done. You just have to make sure certain things are in tip-top shape.

Sean / SDS and his team (shout to to Tom!) was great to work with. Prompt to give us a quote (his proposal was detailed), and prompt to start and finish. They didn’t cut corners and even suggested layouts that were better than ours. We are so in love with our bathroom and hope to work with them again with other projects in the future! Thank you Sean and Tom!

We can't say enough about Sean and his team at SDS. We used them to remodel our brand new tract home: expanding a closet, painting, swapping out some doors, etc. Sean and his team gave us the utmost care. We had several contractors coming and going, and BY FAR, Sean's team was the most professional, clean, efficient and friendly. I loved working with Tom and Jorge and all the guys. They even assembled a couple of consoles I received from Wayfair for my parents. Now we are getting estimates for an epic backyard from Sean. Can't wait to get going! O! And when they said they would be here at 8am they were always right on time. Thanks guys!

SDS Home’s did a complete remodel of the guest bathroom at my house. The crew that worked on my project was very professional and I’m extremely happy about the end results. I also think the project cost was very fair. I’m very happy that I hired SDS Home’s for this project.

I am very impressed with this company. When I called, I actually got to speak to the owner directly and he answered his phone. He was very informative about permitting, plans and city ordinances. He is always willing to go above and beyond. My colleagues have used him and WOW! He is really good! You will not be disappointed! Give him a call!
