Today, expert home stager Lindsey Cavazos joins us to share some holiday decorating ideas that will appeal to buyers!
For many, the holidays are already the most stressful time of the year -- trying to sell during this time only amplifies it! Many homeowners are unsure how they should present their home during the holidays. Luckily, we're here to help.
Nothing says "Make yourself at home!" like a home that already smells like the holidays. Before buyers come over for a showing, boil one sliced orange, one sliced lemon, four bay leaves, two tablespoons of whole cloves, four cinnamon sticks, and half a cup of cranberries in four cups of water. This will ensure they make themselves comfortable and will take their time walking around your home!

When decorating your home for the holidays, you want to keep it simple! You don't want to overwhelm buyers with a bunch of holiday decor. Enhance what you have, and simply accent with holiday decorations. It's very important to declutter before bringing out the ornaments. Keep in mind that large nativity displays and villages are popular with homeowners and may add a personal touch, but are not popular with all buyers. Instead of a busy display, opt to highlight features of a room, like the mantle, by using garland and few ornaments.
When shopping for a tree, keep in mind where you're going to be putting it. If you have a small space, don't go and get a huge Christmas tree. You don't want to crowd the area and make it feel small and overwhelmed. If you have tall ceilings, get a tall tree that will fill the room and decorate them as much as you would like. One thing to keep in mind is that the tree should compliment the color palate of the room. If a tree has a clean, all-white color scheme, skip the clashing red garland and opt for a white tree, white candles, and silver glass ornaments.
Lights or no lights? This is a question most sellers have when marketing their home during the holiday season. If you decide to put lights up, keep in mind that doing it tastefully is key. Show off your landscape by adding single-strand lighting leading up to your front door and use lights to enhance your flowerbeds and trees. Nothing says curb appeal more than a well-lit, beautifully manicured front yard! There are buyers who may be drawn to the neighborhood and location based on what the street looks like during the holidays!
If you have any questions about making your home look its best this holiday season, please don't hesitate to reach out to us! We would love to hear from you!
