Don’t let selling your home during the Holiday season dampen your spirit. Create a buyer-friendly home with my Top 5 seasonal home staging tips:
-Go easy on the outdoor lights and leave the inflatable snowman in the storage room. Instead, use simple string lights to play up your home’s architecture or draw attention to your landscaping.
-Don’t go overboard with decorating. It’s tempting, we know, and nobody wants to be a Scrooge during Christmas. But buyers need to be able to visualize the home as their own, so your family’s decorations on every shelf and table will only be a distraction. A few holiday touches here and there will add a nice staging effect, but try to keep your home as open and uncluttered as possible.
-Make sure your holiday decorations match your current decor. If your family room has a clean blue and white color scheme, then skip the clashing red garland. If you have an earthy color scheme, then accent with rich tones like cranberries, forest greens and gold.
-Too much can distract buyers, but the right amount of accessories can draw attention to your home’s best features. Try hanging a few tasteful ornaments from your mantel to highlight an elegant fireplace.
-If your living space is small, then save space with a skinny Christmas tree. Although it can be fun to dedicate large areas to the holidays, make sure to leave enough room for buyers to move around and appreciate your home for its actual size.
