What Should You do to Sell Your Home Before the Holidays?

Home SoldThe holidays are around the corner. For those selling their home right now, making sure you list it when buyers are still in the market is best. Many people may be trying to land the right home before the holidays arrive so this is the time to list before the holidays are here. Try these tips to make sure your home is noticed and has a better chance of selling before the holidays.

Holiday Decorating

Make sure you’ve removed extra clutter and painted rooms to a more neutral color that will appeal to more people.  Even if you’re still living in the home, you still need to stage it for potential buyers. If you plan to decorate for the holidays, make sure you keep it simple.

Adding a wreath and simple décor is acceptable but leave the personalized decorations in storage. Potential buyers want to be able to picture their holiday decorations in the home, rather than feeling like a guest in someone else’s home.


It’s a good idea to get professional photos taken before the snow falls. Buyers want to see what your house looks like during the whole year and snow won’t make it look its best. Professional photos also help homes sell faster for their high quality that offers a better look at the home’s features.


Make sure your home feels welcoming and neat. Make sure lights are on so it’s easy to find. Turn on indoor lights and make sure the heat is on high enough. Add blankets and pillows around the home and turn the fireplace on to add a relaxing feel.

Prices are high

At this time, prices are high. The prediction is that the market will balance out in the future, so selling now means a better price for the seller.

Follow these tips to get your home sold before the holidays.
