The holidays are packed with parties and feasting galore! However, it’s not exactly a booming time for real estate. However, if your house is up for sale during the holidays, rest assured that buyers who are looking right now are downright serious. The goal is to create a romantic atmosphere that will convince house hunters that your home is just the thing to ring in the new year! Read on for staging tips to sell your house during the holidays for top dollar!

 

Declutter Before You Decorate

You want to decorate for the season, but first makes sure to clean and declutter a Marvin home for sale. If you fail to clear out unnecessary knick-knacks and furniture, decorations will simply overwhelm the space. The key is to make your house look as spacious as possible!

 

Avoid Color Clashes

It is essential that your holiday decor match the color scheme you have throughout a house for sale in Marvin. For example, if you choose a nautical blue as your overall color scheme, skip the bright festive reds that are so common in seasonal decor. Instead, opt for silver or white accent pieces.

 

Keep it Simple and Neutral

As you stage for a holiday showing, remember to stay neutral. Instead of those blinking colorful lights dotted here and there, opt for a bowl of pinecones or a classic wreath. Tall unscented candles also make a beautiful impression. You want to spread the cheer without scaring away the buyer!

 

Pass on Inflatables

You may have a giant inflatable snowman just ready to make its debut on the front lawn of a Marvin house for sale. However, this should be avoided at all costs. It may be fun and festive, but to some buyers, it will come off as tacky.

 

Instead, opt for simple white strings of lights placed tastefully to accentuate interesting architectural features.

 

Christmas Tree Craze

A Christmas tree is a great idea during the holidays. However, make sure it doesn’t clutter the room. Additionally, browse through interior design magazines to get inspiration on how to decorate your tree.

 

Put away the family heirloom ornaments and opt for a more mainstream scheme to sell your house fast over the holidays!
