To Decorate Or Not To Decorate For Holidays When Selling A Home?

We’re almost into the holidays, hard to believe! How can that affect the presentation of your Orlando home for sale?

You have the opportunity to make your house stand out on the block with some colorful décor. Who doesn’t stop for a beat and think “That’s nice” when they see corn stalks, pumpkins, and mums clustered around a gate post or an entry door?
Inside, holiday décor can lend a festive air and create a joyful atmosphere – something everyone wants to feel in their own home. It could be just the thing that makes a prospective buyer think “This is home.”

Each holiday presents that opportunity – but do be cautious.
Homeowners who go “all-out” in decorating could be harming, rather than helping the presentation of their homes.
Why? Because when it’s over-done, visitors will focus on the decorations instead of the house. In some cases, décor can even hide some of a home’s best features, while making rooms appear small and over-crowded.
So decorate. Add some lively colors and create a festive mood. But keep a light touch. You want those visitors to focus on your home, not your decorating skills.
