The holiday season is a great time to make your house look its best when you are selling.  Unfortunately, when you are selling your home it can some times look too cluttered with all of the extra decor .  Here are some tips that work well for all of us, but are particularly important if you are trying to sell your home during the holiday season.

Edit
Start by packing away the remnants of your autumn decor and while you’re at it, also stow away some of your all-season favourites. By editing now, you’ll ensure that your place doesn’t look too cluttered once you’ve set out your holiday items.

Evaluate
Haul out all the delights that decorated your place last year. Figure out which ones are ready to be passed on to charity, which are ready to dazzle again this year and which ones need a little touch up — maybe a new ribbon or a quick lick of paint. Decide where your existing decorations will go; try to spread some throughout your home and don’t forget to add some special touches to your guest room and your powder room.
Add
Now that you know what you have and where it’s going to go, you’re in a position to see what you want to add to your decor repertoire for this season. Remember the style and colour of your existing decorations and always consider your personal style when choosing new additions. Also keep in mind the entertaining you’ll be doing over the course of the season, which rooms you and your guests will use and how you can make the most engaging holiday impact in these spaces.

Make your mantel magical, a fireplace can be an incredibly charming focal point.  Faux candles add the mellow light of the real thing without the drips and smoke. These ones are individually battery powered so they can be grouped for impact or scattered for ambience.  Natural and simple will be the catchphrase while selling!

 

 

It is always important that your home seem friendly and inviting, but if selling during the holiday season this becomes a little easier.  Remember to add some gentle scent to the house, evergreen, pine, cinnamon…make it a home that others will not only enjoy visiting, but one they will want to purchase and live in.
