When you get ready to put your house on the market during the holidays, it can be a little bit challenging. Here are three helpful tips, as advised by professional stager Barbara Banks, on how to stage your home for the holidays:
- Decorate, but keep it simple. On the exterior of the house, you want to keep all decorations simple. Just a simple wreath on the door and a few lights out front in the bushes will do. Use only white lights—no colored ones. You want to keep it simple on the interior as well; now is not the time to display your collections. A specialty of Barbara’s is decorating the Christmas tree with the same color palate that you use to decorate the surrounding interior of the home.
- Keep the religious symbols simple, too. Many people celebrate Christmas for religious reasons, and there’s nothing wrong with that, but it’s a good idea to keep the religious symbols neutral.
- Absolutely no inflatables on the outside. This means no giant Santa bouncing around in the front yard—that might turn off any buyers from wanting to come up to your home. In maintaining curb appeal, you want to keep things simple and classy.
