Selling Your Home During Holiday Season - Staging

By

Exterior Lighting - It should catch your eye, not blind you.  Flashing lights and lawn figures may keep your prospective buyers from seeing the true charm and value of your home.  Keep it simple.  Simple white lights in moderation can compliment your home and make it feel festive and welcoming.

Christmas Tree - For those with a smaller home, you may want to rethink putting up that tree.  Prospective buyers are looking at the amount of space they have to work with.  A tree can create the illusion of less space.  Natural lighting can create the illusion of more space, so don't block windows with a tree or any large decorations.

Interior Decorations - Leave most of those decoration in the box.  Too many knick-knacks, lights and/or displays will distract the prospective buyer.  The abundance of decorations can make a room appear smaller and the prospective buyer may spend time judging your displays instead of looking at your home.

Holiday Scents - One of the most popular scents is always Vanilla.  Other favorite scents for the holiday season include cinnamon, pumpkin spice and spruce.

After The Holidays - Holiday decoration should be taken down and stored  by January.  Leaving your directions up for an extended period of time may give the impression that you do not take the time to maintain your home. Rule of thumb: All decoration should be removed within a few days after the holiday

Hi Joe,

Great suggestions for marketing your home during the holidays.

I'd like to mention that agents who take photos of a home while decorated need to re-shoot afterwards. Nothing like seeing a Christmas tree in July in the MLS photo.

Taking it one step further, I've seen some sellers who put out decorated Christmas cookies for the potential buyers who are viewing the property.  A nice homey touch!
