Selling your home during the holidays can be difficult. Potential buyers are so busy with activities and big dinners that they might not have home buying at the top of their minds. You’re also busy with such activities, but you need to keep your home tidy, too. In short, selling your home during the holidays takes a little work. Having the best real estate agent can help.
Rick and Robin, luxury real estate agents in Columbus, have some tips for home staging during the holidays:
- Add Holiday Decorations: Although you usually want to avoid too much personalized décor when your home is on the market, a few well-placed candles or wreaths can bring some of the spirit of the holiday season to your home—something buyers will notice.
- Consider Your Outdoor Lights: If someone’s looking at your home during the holidays, it means the days are shorter and it gets darker earlier. Potential buyers won't be able to fully appreciate curb appeal in the dark. Showcase everything your home has to offer, even in the dark, by having excellent outdoor lighting.
- Be Mindful of Your Christmas Tree: If your tree is too big, buyers will think the living room is smaller than it really is. That’s certainly not something luxury real estate buyers are looking for, so pick a tree that adequately fits the space.
- Don’t Forget The Cookies: Christmas cookies are always appreciated—plus they’ll keep buyers in your home a little longer, allowing them to feel comfortable and take in more of the little details they might otherwise miss.
