For many, ’tis not the season for real estate. But the good news is that the potential buyers who do venture out in the cold Indiana winters are serious about buying a house. Selling your home during the holiday season means you may need a crash course on how to decorate your home for the holidays all while still attracting those serious potential buyers.
Clean and Stage
Before showing your home to potential buyers, it is important to clean the space. Be sure to remove clutter around your home. You also should consider depersonalizing your home to give the potential buyer the opportunity to imagine themselves in the home.
Consider Your Neighbors
Follow the trend of the neighborhood when it comes to decorating. If every home on the block has holiday decorations, add some to your home so you don’t look like the Grinch on the street. Make your home appealing for potential buyers and your neighbors.
Go Light on the Lights
Even if your neighborhood is the holiest and jolliest of them all, or it is your favorite time to decorate, step away from the inflatables. One man’s “merry” is another man’s “tacky,” so tone down any big light displays while your home is on the market. Simple white lights can add a festive touch without blinding buyers during walk-throughs.
