Your home is on the market, should you decorate for the holiday’s?
Selling your home during the holiday’s can be tricky however, anyone who is looking for a home during this season, is more than likely serious about buying.
Your home will be front and center, as the competition is usually very low in the winter months. It must be staged to impress!
So you may be asking yourself “should I put up Fall/Christmas decorations”?
The answer is YES, but only in small amounts.
Definitely don’t go overboard with your Scarecrow or Santa collection that being said, put up that Christmas tree, and decorate the fireplace mantel, just keep in mind less is more. You don’t want your prospective buyers to be overwhelmed with too many decorations, that that’s all they see.
Another great thing to keep in mind is scents. This can be a BIG one! Don’t plug in that Glade refill, and turn it all the way up. This can be very overwhelming to people just walking in the front door.
Instead, bake chocolate chip cookies, or brew a pot of coffee, these are light airy scents that don’t over-fill a room.
An essential oil and diffuser set is also a great option, these are easily adjustable scents, are natural, and very pleasing to most everyone.
In conclusion, I hope this gave you some good information on what to do, and what not to do, when selling your home during the holiday season.
Even though it may be the most stressful time of year, it also can be very rewarding, and headache free when done right.
