Should You Decorate Your Home When Selling During The Holiday Season? – What's Up Clarksville

Should You Decorate Your Home When Selling During The Holiday Season?

The Holiday season is upon us. Decorations are going up all around. If you are selling your home this time of year, you may wonder, what is the etiquette for home decor?

Don’t worry, you can get into the holiday spirit and even decorate when your house is for sale. An article from Realtor.com outlined the rules you should follow when it comes to decorating. These rules are:

  • Avoid personalized decorations. It is best to pack away the personalized items, and cards until your home has been sold.
  • Go classic and elegant. Elegant, classic decorations have a wider appeal than kitschy ones.
  • Look at your neighbors for inspiration. (example: If your neighbors are mostly decorated, you may not want to skip decorating. On the flip side, if most of your neighbors are not decorating, you may not want to be the most elaborate house on the block).

You can decorate your home for the holidays but remember to keep potential buyers in mind.
