Helm’s Sunday Sellers Guide:
A client recently asked me if they should decorate their house while it is for sale.
I say yes -in moderation! The same theme of less is more should be kept while selling your home during the holidays. There are serious buyers looking and a house with stylish trimmings may encourage them to ring in the new year in your home! Keep decorations fairly neutral and instead of decking all the halls choose a couple of your best features/ spaces to highlight- a tall decorated tree can show off high ceilings, festive tartan throw pillows placed on a bay window bench can highlight a view to a large backyard. Keep views clear and tree bases narrow as you want to ensure your home continues to look spacious and bright. Keep decorations simple, a bowl full of pine cones, exterior door wreaths and if you have a fireplace add some festive greenery on the hearth.
Do add exterior lights as you would typically do, and keep the lights on into the evening. You never know who might be driving by! Are you curious what your home is worth? Thinking it would be nice to ring in the new year in a new home? I’d love to help! I'm just a phone call, email, text or tweet away! xo Janet photos from 204 park and cintrineliving
