Boost Your Home’s Appeal This Holiday Season

Even in a confident market, preparing your home for the real estate marketwhile trying to maintain some semblance of your favourite holidaytraditions can be tricky, but also, a key advantage. Holiday décor thatsets a warm and inviting atmosphere will not only enhance your home’smarketing but it will also make it look its best for you and your familyto enjoy.

Here are some holiday décor tips that will boost the appeal ofyour home this season.

Focus your décor

Holiday decorations with universal themes, like a winter wonderland, aresure to add atmosphere to your home. Dedicating one or two rooms inwhich to place décor achieves an appropriate nod to the season withoutovercluttering your interior as a whole. Remember, potential buyers wantto envision themselves in your home, which includes dreaming of how theymight decorate the space.

Keep reds and greens as accents only

Like having decorations in too many rooms, having a multicoloured décorpalette can make your home feel busy and cluttered. Using natural toneslike silvers, golds, woods, and whites create a relaxing atmosphere thatdoesn’t distract from the year-round features your home has to offer. Ifyou have light-toned furniture, add natural greenery or a few seasonalplants like poinsettias for colour.

Seasonal curb appeal

Even in winter, your curb appeal should be exactly that: appealing. Chooseelegant outdoor lighting, preferably white, to give your home a dreamy,festive feel. Pack away any distracting, large-format decorations,especially inflatable figures, and opt instead for simple pieces like awreath for your door and flanking planters made from fresh pine.

Add warmth with accessories

Whenever you’re selling your home, it’s critical to clear out and store awayyour household clutter and personal items, but keep pieces that set theright tone. Pillows, throw blankets, and battery-operated candles arecomplementing seasonal touches that draw the right kind of attention. If youhave a fireplace, ask your Realtor® to demonstrate it during a showing, andput out real, unlit, unscented candles for an added festive touch.

Trim a smaller tree

Often, a Christmas tree requires you to rearrange your interior space toaccommodate its girth. A smaller, less intrusive tree or even atable-top-style tree makes a festive impact without dominating the room.Remember to keep family gifts out of sight, save a few that have been expertlywrapped to complement the overall décor of the space.

Selling your home during the holidays doesn’t have to feel stressful and islikely to draw serious buyers. Just think —the effort you make now is bringingyou one step closer to your next home, where you’ll be celebrating nextChristmas.
