‘Tis the Season: Holiday Decorating When Your Home’s for Sale

One of the many delights of the holiday season is decorating your home. From a cornucopia and pumpkins for Thanksgiving to a Douglas fir and lights for Christmas or a menorah for Hanukkah, decorating can bring a joyous feeling to any home. However, if you’re selling your house around the holidays, you may want to practice moderation when choosing your holiday decor. Use these tips to decorate your house while being mindful of your home sale.



While some people use the holidays as an opportunity to decorate every nook and cranny of their home, it’s best to keep things to a minimum. A significant focus of staging is to remove clutter to make your home appear as spacious as possible. Select a few pieces of festive flair to bring the holiday spirit into your home, and leave the rest in storage this year. If you need help choosing decorations, you should avoid anything with names or photos. Personalized items can make it difficult for homebuyers to see themselves living in your home.
