That time of year is coming around where we hear festive carols broadcast 24/7, see Santa on every corner, and the smell of cinnamon and pine lingers in the air. It’s a time for family, friends, parties, and gift-giving. It’s also the time we pull out all of our favorite holiday décor that’s packed full of memories and the joy of the season. However, if your home is on the market you may be wondering if you should be decorating at all? The short answer is…yes. However, you may need to do things a little bit different this year. You want to convince buyers that they could be enjoying their holiday celebrations here, not pulling up a chair to join you for your Christmas dinner. They need to be able to visualize the home as their own! Keeping things simple and neutral is a great way to highlight the home’s best features and keep the buyer’s interest. Here are some tips to help you draw in buyers during the holidays.
Most of the time when we think holiday decorating, we think bright reds and greens. But when your home is on the market you will probably need to tone down the colors. Keep your décor neutral and natural. Think gold, silver, and glass ornaments, white lights and candles, natural elements such as pinecones, cranberries, or the greenery of a tree or wreath. You want your décor to add a touch of holiday cheer but also blend with the rest of the home and not feel overly distracting.
