Home staging during the holidays

If you’re listing your home during the holidays, it’s important to be mindful of how you decorate and stage your space. Make your house look bright and inviting this season with these suggestions.

Elevate curb appeal. Simple strands of white lights can accentuate the architecture of your house, and an elegant wreath of the front door provides a charming first impression. Save the inflatable characters for next year.

Scale Back. Classy holiday décor can help your home feel warm and cozy, but overdoing it will make the space feel small and cluttered. If you put up a tree, minimize the ornaments and try to choose ones that blend with the color scheme of the room.

Depersonalize décor. Make it easy for buyers to envision having their own holiday celebrations in the space. Box up family holiday photos and keepsake creations your kids made in school. Put away greeting cards you receive instead of hanging them on a display this year.

Highlight the best features. Use decorations to draw buyers’ eyes to features such as an attractive staircase, a beautiful fireplace mantel, unique arched doorways or sunny bay windows.

3 Reasons Why the Holiday Season Is a Good Time to Sell:

  1. Less Competition- fewer houses are on the market during the winter months, meaning buyers won’t have as many options. This could mean a quicker sale at a better price for you.
  2. Serious Buyers- Buyers who are making time to look at houses during the busy holiday season are serious about moving forward. They’re likely on a time crunch to find a new home and highly motivated to move quickly.
  3. Nostalgia Works- Walking into a home warmly decorated for the holidays automatically stirs emotions and draws buyers into imagining hosting their own celebrations in the space.
