‘Tis the season to sell your home this holiday season
Is the thought of selling your home this holiday season seem daunting? Do you still believe home do not sell during the holidays? Well, let’s reframe those thoughts!
Fact is, since many homeowners are under the belief that they should wait till spring to put their home on the market, homes that are for sale are a HOT commodity since the housing inventory is low. Furthermore, there are plenty of buyers searching to purchase a home during the holidays due to job relocation, retirement, and job promotions. As an added bonus, holiday home buyers are typically more serious about purchasing since they are taking time out of holiday shopping and family outings.
Staging Tips to get your home SOLD:
1. Keep it Neutral
“Less is more” is one of the golden rules of staging and that certainly rings true during the holidays. It’s essential not to go over the top with extravagant decorations and lighting displays, as that can be overwhelming. Instead, try going for an understated feel that’s festive and inviting without being too personalized. Remember, it’s important that your home feels appealing to as many homebuyers as possible. Skip the red/green or blue/white/silver and grab the gold and silver decor!
2. Enticing Scents
Preheat your oven, add scentsicles, or light those candles! There is nothing more inviting to homebuyers than smells of yummy baked goods and desserts.
3. Light it Up
Add a few strings of white lights that highlight your homes architectural features are a great touch, but leave it at that. Avoid inflatable penguins and plastic Santa/reindeer displays in the yard.
4. Mind the Tree
A tall Christmas tree can help you show off your two-story great room, but make sure the wide base won’t overwhelm the floor space. If your living area is on the small side, save space with a skinny tree. Swap the gaudy heirloom ornaments and trim your tree in a cohesive theme such as icicle lights and silver tinsel, for example, or blue and gold glass balls.
5. Adjust your holiday decorations to fit the style of your home
If you have a modern home, consider tasteful modern holiday decorations. Have a more traditional home, your decorations should reflect the style of your home.
Selling a home during the holidays can be the most wonderful time of year.
