Top Tips For Decorating For The Holidays

Decorate After Photos Of The Home Have Been Taken 

Decorate for the holidays using neutral decorations

Decorating for the holidays is not only fun but also festive. Many people want to decorate for the holidays on November 1st. It is important to decorate your home after your agent has scheduled photos to be professionally taken. These photos will be used on the MLS, social media, flyers, and other traditional advertisements. Decorations are limited to specific seasons so it is important to have evergreen photos to live no matter the timeframe. 

Minimalistic Holiday Decorations 

When you are decorating for the holidays, many tend to want to use all the space you have with decorations. We suggest that you clear the clutter to make your home look as spacious as possible and appealing to buyers. Removing the clutter will make your home feel larger and more open to potential buyers. Also, sometimes less is more. You can accentuate a large tree in your living room. You want to keep your decor subtle and classic. Although you may want to bring out all the childhood decorations and photos to decorate, veering away from personalized touches will be key. It will be hard for potential buyers to picture themselves in a home that is clearly not theirs. 

Highlight the Home’s Best Features

Neutral decorations are key when planning for the holidays

Another tip we have for decorating your home is to decorate in a way that highlights the home’s best features. For example, if you have a beautiful porch then feel free to put some lights along the sides to highlight it. If you have a fireplace, place stockings and greenery around it. Adding nice touches like opening up blinds during the day for natural light, having the fireplace on during showings, and placing Christmas cookies on the counter will really draw the eyes of a potential buyer and create a lasting impression. 

Another way to really set your home apart from the rest is placing candles and scents around the home that smell like cookies or Christmas trees. This will make the buyer’s mind run wild with memories from their childhood.

Stay Neutral With Decorations

As we mentioned before, decorations can get extremely personal. Each person may celebrate a different holiday during these months, so keeping your decorations neutral to the season will be a good idea. Ideas include lights, Christmas trees, greenery, and cozy blankets!
