If you’re like many sellers, you’re wondering whether it’s a good idea to decorate for the holidays when your home is on the market.
There’s no one-size-fits-all answer to that question, but if your home is for sale this holiday season, it’s best to keep in mind that you want to appeal to as many buyers as possible.
That said, every home and every market is different, so it’s best to consult with your Realtor® about what will work in yours.
So Should You Decorate?
In many cases, it’s best to embrace the season with appropriate décor. A simple wreath on the door, a strand of lights or winter plants on your porch can be a beautiful addition.
The main concern isn’t necessarily holiday décor – it’s making your home appear cluttered or smaller than it actually is.
Good Plants for Winter Home Sales
If you have a garden, you can make the most of its appearance by adding beautiful blooms. Those include:
- Cheddar pink (Dianthus gratianopolitanus)
- Chickabiddy (Asarina scandens)
- Corsican pansy (Viola corsica)
- Diascia (Diascia rigenscens)
- English marigold (Calendula officianalis)
- Firespike (Odontonema strictum)
- Johnny Jump-Up (Viola cornuta)
- Nemesia (Nemesia strumosa)
- Wild petunia (Petunia integrifolia)
Proper Staging During Winter Months
Although we live in the Sunshine State, winter brings shorter days. Lighting, as always, is essential in staging your home properly – so always make sure your blinds and drapes are open to let in ample natural light. (Make sure the windows are spotless, too!)
Fall and winter are both good times to invest in lamps or to upgrade your lighting system, as well.
