Here are some suggestions for staging your home for the holidays.
Invite buyers in by having a warm and inviting home. If you have a fireplace now is the time to light it during showings or open houses. The key is to keep your home toasty and warm. You want buyers to visualize living there. A warm home invites them in. This is especially important if the property is empty. When a home is cold the buyers rush through it and they are not comfortable. The same is true is the summer months keep your home cool.
Lighting is key. Invest in timers if you need to. A dark home is not welcoming.
Keep decorations simple but not overpowering.
As Barb Schwarz says " If you cannot see it, then you cannot sell it." Keep your yard clean by removing snow, branches and leaves. Prepare the outside as well as the inside.
Staging is key. These are important when selling your home.
Have a great holiday!
