Selling Your Home During the Holidays? Follow These Staging Tips

Selling Your Home During the Holidays Follow These Staging TipsWhile most believe the holidays are a less than ideal time to put your home up for sale, there are certain tricks and tips you can implement in order to lay this thought to rest. While budgets might be strained to supplement family gifts and trips, it is still possible to sell your home during this hectic time with the help of these expert staging tips. While the process is carried out, ensure your Woodstock Homeowners Insurance is updated.

Clean and Stage- Get rid of clutter and knick knacks prior to potential buyer visits. Buyers don’t want to be overwhelmed with personal items and photos when they’re trying to imagine themselves in the space.

Equal Opportunity Decorating- According to HGTV, overtly religious flourishes may be off-putting to some buyers. Amy Powers, owner of Accent Home Staging & Interiors of Atlanta, states “You want to keep neutrality throughout, so you can attract any type of buyer.”

Use Lights- Tone down the holiday décor by using plenty of lights instead of large, bulky items. Play on your home’s architecture and accent the curb appeal with simplistic, bright lights. Bear in mind that what one person might find attractive, others might find tacky.

Tree Placement-While a tall tree might draw attention to the vaulted ceilings, you want to ensure it doesn’t take up too much floor space, as this will cause the room to look and feel smaller than it is. If you have a small living area, consider a slender tree with sleek adornments rather than a bulky tree.

Focus on the Positive- Use decorations to your advantage as an adorned home creates a warm atmosphere and attracts buyers. HGTV also states that you can draw attention to your home’s best features by dangling mistletoe in an arched doorway, or by placing a menorah in a bay window, for example.

Complement your Current Palette- Decorations shouldn’t clash with your existing style. If you have a light, beach themed home, try to steer clear of harsh reds and greens and opt for some silver and white accents, instead.
