Many homeowners who already have their home on the market cringe when the holidays roll around. It can be beautiful to have potential homeowners walk through your home during the holidays, and seeing the lights and potential for decorating can be a big selling point. Here are some tips to make this time of year less stressful, plus help you enjoy this season with your family – even though your home is on the market.
Decorate. Don’t be afraid to put up your decorations. Be sure to carry on your family traditions and enjoy the holiday season. Potential buyers love to see homes decorated – it gives them ideas on how they could decorate during the holidays, and provides them with pictures in their own minds on what it would be like to live there. It’s a huge selling point!
If you know of a showing, be sure to light some candles (battery operated ones are perfect if you are gone all day), and place potpourri in a bowl or vase on the kitchen island. It will give a earthy, warm feeling and make your home very inviting.
