Holiday Home Selling How-to
Now that we are getting well into November, we’re well into the holidays. Selling your home during the holidays isn’t all that popular, well, because who has time to sell a home during the busiest time of the year? Between planning for family to arrive, traveling, grocery shopping, cleaning and more grocery shopping, the last thing you want to do is worry about your home on the market.
Maybe don't go this far...
Although not ideal, you may find yourself in the position to put your home for sale during the holiday season. But have no fear, Staging Dallas is here!
Tip #1: Go light on the holiday décor
That doesn’t mean you can’t have any holiday décor. Just be tasteful about it. Going all “National Lampoon Christmas Vacation” can really turn away a potential buyer as it may cover up the best parts of your home! See what we did below with this home in Dallas recently. Just a few pumpkins added the feeling of home without being too gaudy.
And try to think SEASONAL, instead of holiday. Fall and winter decor instead of Halloween, Thanksgiving, or Christmas.
Tip #2: Store items you don’t need
If you’re still living in your home during the sale, this may be a good time to store some of the large home items that you don’t need. Unsure of what to store? Hire Staging Dallas for a consultation and we’ll tell you exactly what to keep and what to put away for the time being. Remember, less is more!
Tip #3: Focus on the photos
Cooler weather = more home searching from the comfort of the couch. People make snap judgments from photos online and you need to make sure every photo is picture perfect. This is why it’s a good idea to hire Staging Dallas for professional home staging as well hiring a professional photographer during this busy time of year. These little investments add up!
Selling your home during any time of the year can be stressful, but we hope these holiday home selling tips can steer you on the right path. Want to make your home sell even faster? Hire Staging Dallas for a consultation, partial staging or full staging today!
