Staging for the Holdays
Holiday StagingThe holidays are drawing near and it's time to celebrate! One of the first things we all do is we think about decorating our homes for the holidays. Most of us have oodles of decorations and lights that we've collected over the years - much of it steeped in family tradition. Once these decorations go up, the true holiday spirit begins.

But what about those of you selling your home through the holidays? You've just staged your home effectively by decluttering, reorganizing, giving it show-home style and now you're about to re-populate the house with years and years of decorations?

TIME OUT! In this shifting real estate market, you just can't let your guard down.

So how do you continue to merchandise your house to ensure maximum buyer appeal but still enjoy a little bit of that holiday magic that we all love? Read on for more home staging strategies that will help you sell your home during the holidays.

What better time to evoke these emotions, then during the Holiday Season, when we're all (buyers included) in a mood of reflection and eager anticipation of what lays ahead. 

Target those emotions in potential buyers and you've made the sale!
