Sellers are busy and may dread having to prepare for showings at this time of the year. Also, decorating for the holidays can be tough if you’re trying to sell. Real estate and staging pros are mixed on whether you should decorate.
Sometimes the right holiday decor can make the house look more welcoming, but you don’t want to go over the top.
The goal is always to be as neutral as possible, not everyone celebrates the same holidays.
Curb appeal still needs to be a priority, especially during gloomier months. “Bare trees equal a more exposed home, so touch up the paint, clean the gutters and spruce up the yard,” according to FrontDoor. “Keep buyers’ safety in mind as well by making sure stairs and walkways are free of snow, ice, and leaves.” If possible, have pictures of the exterior from the summer or spring to show, too.
Make it cozy inside. Crank up the heat, turn on the lights, play soft classical music, and offer up holiday treats.
From everyone here at TeamPete Realty Services we wish you a very Happy Holiday season. Whether you are buying or selling our agents are here to help.
