DECOR TIPS FOR SELLING YOUR HOME DURING THE HOLIDAYS
Having your home in the real estate market at this time of year can bring added stress to an already busy season! Are you wondering how in the world you are going to manage showings, parties, and all the family functions?
With the Holiday Season fast approaching, it may seem overwhelming to think that on top of everything else, you need to keep your home show ready. As daunting as this task might seem, it may not be as tough as you think. Most people at this time of year have their own events to attend, you will probably see the amount of showing requests go down significantly. Even though this is generally the case, keeping your home in tip top shape for those “surprise” showings is important!
CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN!
Use this as a good time to get into those spots you would generally over look. This will help with your overall peace of mind. By no means do you want to be moving your Christmas tree when you get those last minute showing requests.
KEEP IT SIMPLE
Christmas decor is fun to play around with but try not to go overboard! When potential buyers come through your house, they want to see the natural beauty and function of your home. Keeping things simple is number one, especially when trying to maneuver the real estate market during the holidays.
COMPLIMENT YOUR COLOR PALETTE
All of the homemade paper snowflakes are lovely, and seeing the excited smiles of our children when we hang them in the window is what this time of year is all about. That being said, try to stay away from overly personalized items. Pick pieces that go well with your already existing decor. For example, if your home is in the earth tones, go for rich red berries, ever green wreaths and touches of gold. Highlight your homes architecture with white string lights, or accentuate that large fir tree in the front yard.
HIGHLIGHT THE POSITIVES
Do you have large windows with a spectacular view? Vaulted ceilings, or a beautiful fireplace? Showcase these areas in your home! Leave the windows clear of hanging ornaments so that the view can be enjoyed. If you have the height in your living room, choose a tall tree, this will draw the eye up toward the beautiful vaulted ceiling. We all love a beautifully decorated fireplace, and by adding some greenery and simple decor this will hopefully leave them with the feeling of warmth and home!
MAKING AN ENTRANCE
Last but definitely not least, the front entrance to your home! This is one of our favorite spots to spruce up. The fresh greens, pine cones, red berries and sparkle can add a very welcoming tone when buyers enter your home. Offering a subtle holiday feel can give potential buyers a good visual of what it might look like to live in your home. Remember, you want people to fall in love with your home, not your decor, less is always more!
