, How Much is too Much Decorating for a Listed Home?

There are many advantages to having holiday decorations in your home when it is listed on the market, because the decorations will make your home look more appealing to potential buyers. But, it is important to understand that there is a fine line between not enough and too much décor. Talk with your Atlanta real estate agent to figure out the right balance for your home.

Spruce Up the Space

One of the reasons that holiday decorations can be beneficial when you are selling your home is because they can make the space look a little better. A Christmas tree in the corner can help to brighten the room and make it cozy. Garland on the handrails looks festive and fun. Buyers relate to these types of decorations, especially since many people have positive memories associated with Christmas time in the home.

Make sure that you are using high quality decorations. Buying a few things from the dollar store won’t cut it, because people will be able to tell that you have cheap decorations up in the home. If you don’t have nice holiday décor, ask a friend or family member if you can borrow a few things for the holiday season. Or, you can keep an eye on the local stores to find discounts on Christmas decorations. Right now might be a great time to invest in holiday decorations, because you can take those items and enjoy them after you move into your new home.

Too Much Will Make Your Space Look Cramped

Loading your home with too many knick-knacks and trinkets will make it look cluttered, and these items can quickly make a comfortable home appear small and cramped. Don’t fill your shelves and floor space with too many Christmas trinkets. Even though the items might have sentimental value for your family, these things can detract from the space and drive away potential buyers.

Typically, a few items are sufficient to decorate the home. You want to make sure that the space feels open, comfortable and festive. Think of the Christmas decorations as a garnishment, instead of the main course. A little bit can go a long way!

If you need ideas about the types of Christmas decorations that you should be using, look online at sites like Pinterest. These social media sites will help you see some of the decorations that are trending, and you can get ideas about the type of decorations that can be used in the space that you have available.
