Selling a Home during the Holiday SeasonIntegrate Holiday Decor with Home Staging

Can you enjoy your living space if you are selling during the holiday season? Filling the space with small decorations and cluttery holiday décor might be a fun tradition, but it could have a negative impact on your ability to sell the home.

On the other hand, some home sellers feel like they can’t pull out any holiday decorations. But, a little bit of décor can go a long way to making the home comfortable and inviting. You just need to make sure that it is done right.

Holiday Decorating Tips

Here are a few staging tips to help as you are setting up your holiday décor:

  • Clear the Clutter: Clear out other year-round accessories to make space for the holiday pieces. If the room is too cluttered, then it might be uninviting.
  • Front Porch: The front porch can be inviting with a themed wreath hanging from the door. You might also add a welcome mat where people can scrape their shoes before stepping inside.
  • Quality vs. Quantity: Make sure that you select high quality, classy items for your home. Avoid cheap dollar bin purchases.
  • Neutral Decoration Style: Traditional holiday decorations are perfect to create a cozy space. Stay away from loud colors or unusual decorating styles that might detract from the features of the property.
  • Tables and Mantels: It is common to place holiday decorations on the mantels and tables. These surfaces can hold a little décor, but they should be mostly open to keep the room free of clutter.
