The holiday season is fast approaching and perhaps you’re considering this time of the year as not the best time to put your house in to the market. Maybe you’d be surprised to know that selling your home during the holiday season isn’t actually bad idea after all.
There are a lot of advantages to this such as your house looking a lot better when they’re decorated over the holidays, buyers have more time during the holidays to visit your property, and sometimes, certain people find it a must to buy a new house before the year ends due to tax reasons. Therefore, if you want to be successful in selling your home this coming holiday season, below are a few tips to remember in home staging.
Put the right amount of decorations. Since it’s the holiday season, adding a few decorations can help in home staging. However, this doesn’t mean that you’re obliged to hang ornaments in every corner of the house because you still need to leave your home as spacious as possible for your potential buyers to see.
Ensure that all your decorations match together in every part of the house. For instance, if you have already decorated your living room with blue and silver decors, then do not add any vibrant red or other colors, as this certainly wouldn’t look good.
Make use of simple Christmas lights. It’s recommended that you use only simple string lighting to enhance your home’s architecture or draw attention from your prospective buyers.
Make a video tour of your home. You’ll usually expect more traffic during the holidays so some prospective buyers might find it difficult to check out your home personally, Therefore, to make it easier for them, try creating a simple video tour of your home and post it on the web so they can still fall in love with your home even without personally seeing it.
Take beautiful photos of your property. First impressions last – this cliché still applies when you’re staging your home for the holidays. So you definitely need to take top-notch pictures of your property and post it on real estate listings over the Internet. In this way, you’ll give your potential buyers an excellent first impression of your home with your high-quality photos.
