The holiday season gives most people the feels – “most” being the operative word. It’s important to keep this in mind when selling your home during the festive season. It’s easy to go overboard. (If you’re not sure what we mean, watch the notorious house-lighting scene from National Lampoons Christmas Vacation for a reminder). An open house is a great opportunity to welcome eager homebuyers and show off your home in all its warm, wonderful glory. Here are some tips to stage your home for a sale, while keeping it tasteful.
Festive Front Door
Any home stager worth their salt will tell you first impressions are key — and since the front door is often the first thing a potential buyer will see, make it count! Give that dull door a quick holiday makeover by hanging a tasteful wreath or swag. Inside, stage your home with a seasonal arrangement placed in the entryway, to make buyers feel like they’re coming home for the holidays, rather than just touring another open house.
