Staging Your Home During The Holidays

During the Holiday Season, you will have potential buyers wanting to preview your home, so let’s talk about how to stage for the occasion.  It’s about more than just your personal style and taste when bringing out the festive decorations. Houses do show better when they’re decorated for the holiday but the question is, what kind of decorations?

Decorations can easily become clutter so stick to just a few simple festive touches.

If you are going to put out pumpkins and fall wreaths, put away your everyday style pieces. If you’re going to have a Christmas tree, remove nearby furniture pieces. By keeping just a few simple decor pieces it will help make your home appear bigger and….better.

As a multicultural region, the best rule of thumb is to keep holiday decorations neutral and natural

Natural holiday decorations are a great choice because they aren’t overtly religious and they add a subtle, sophisticated style. For fall choose pumpkins, gourds, colored leaves and pinecones as accents. For winter decorate with fresh evergreen wreaths, berries, rosemary branches, and lights.

Making a holiday treat to pass out at an open house will make your home smell great and be a big hit with buyers.

For both fall and winter, you can serve hot apple cider, pumpkin bread or special holiday cookies. A big pot of simmering spices or fresh baked cookies will also make your home smell irresistible. Use natural scents, never artificial room fresheners.

Serious buyers will be looking closely at every nook and cranny, when they spot something that is covered up by a holiday decoration it appears as if you may be trying to hide something and they lose trust. So fix any flaws, don’t cover them up.

No matter what the season, presenting your home the right way to find qualified buyers is crucial. We are here with the experience and market knowledge it takes to position your home so it outshines the competition, call today for more information about how our marketing strategies will get your home sold quickly for top dollar.
