The month of December is quite possibly our most favorite time of year when it comes to decorating our homes. After a few hours of pulling out containers filled with beautiful Christmas decor and finding the perfect spot for each piece, our homes suddenly turn into a cozy and festive space where our families gather to celebrate this wonderful season!

This story might be yours as well, but if you are in the process of getting your home ready to sell, we have some tips on how to effectively stage your home to sell while still embracing the season!

 

Holiday Curb Appeal

Adding a touch of holiday decor to the exterior of your home will certainly attract buyers!  Wreaths, simple glowing lights, and ribbon will turn the outside of your house into a desirable, inviting home.  Additionally, take some time to spruce up the landscaping and flower beds to give potential buyers a sense of the year-round beauty of the house!

 

Warm & Cozy

As potential buyers enter your home, you want to create a warm and welcoming ambiance that makes them feel right at home.  Be sure to adjust the temperature to a comfortable level, and if you have a fireplace, this is a perfect time to showcase it!  It also doesn’t hurt to go ahead and make sure all windows and door cracks are sealed so there are no drafts.  Lastly, opening up those shades and adding cozy throws to your couch will top off the feel you’re trying to achieve during each showing.

 

Simple & Tasteful Christmas Decor

This might be the most important step in staging your home for Christmas!  The key is not going overboard with decor so buyers can see the bones of your beautiful home.  A little bit of decoration can go a long way.  Measure back on gifts under the tree, tabletop decorations, and items you typically place on your mantle and shelves.  If you need a second opinion, give us a call and we would be happy to help!

 

Fragrance of the Season

Last but not least, be sure to fill your home with Christmas scents that are pleasant to potential buyers.  Make sure these scents are not overpowering, but add just enough smell to fill the air in each room.  Scentsy candles or Glad Plug-Ins are another great way to achieve the same result.
