HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS
STAGING TO SELL
For those venturing out into the real estate market during this time of festivity and sometimes stress, we have compiled a list of tips to help you with home staging during the holidays...
1. Use Décor To Highlight Your Home
Festive winter decorations are a great way to make your home feel inviting and cozy. A wreath on your door and some baubles here and there can go a long way in making your house feel like a home.
2. Don’t go overboard with decorations
Try not to use every decoration you have, as this type of clutter can distract potential buyers. Keep décor simple and tasteful, even if it means going with only a couple of nice items, like a wreath, some lights, and a few ornaments.
3. Make Sure Everything Matches
Another thing to keep in mind while decorating is that you want items to fit in seamlessly with the rest of your house. If you can, try and follow a similar color scheme and design style so that your home’s style looks orderly and well thought-out.
4. Put Up Holiday Lights
Putting up outdoor lights serves another purpose as well. Since it gets darker earlier during the winter months, buyers are more likely to see a house when it is dark out, which means they are likely to see whether or not a home has any outdoor lighting.
5. Use Festive Fragrances
Having a great smelling home is one of the most important things you can do while staging your home. Since it is the holidays, you can go for some comforting smells that everyone will know and love. Fresh pine, vanilla, apple, cinnamon, and even fresh baked cookies are all smells that people will find comforting during this season.
Selling your home during the holidays can be challenging, but these tips can help ease the process.
