The holidays are arguably the most festive time of the year. And for many people, part of that festiveness is plenty of festive, holiday-themed decorations. But if you’re selling your home, going too over-the-top with your decorations can put off potential buyers.
So, the question is, can you decorate your home for the holidays without hurting your home sale?
An article from realtor.com outlined the rules you need to follow if you want to get into the holiday spirit with your decorations without derailing your home sale, including:
- Avoid personalized decorations. If you want to sell your home, potential buyers need to be able to picture themselves in the space. But if your home is plastered with personalized holiday decorations, it’s going to be nearly impossible to do that—so while you might love your personalized Christmas stockings or your array of holiday cards from friends and family, keep them packed away until your home is sold.
- Go classic. Classic, elegant holiday decorations are always going to have a wider appeal to buyers than more kitschy, over-the-top decor.
- Look to your neighbors. Your buyers are looking at your neighborhood just as much as they’re looking at your home—so when it comes to holiday decor, look to your neighbors for inspiration. If every home on your block is decked out for the holidays, you don’t want to skip decorating altogether—and, on the flip side, if your neighbors all opted out of holiday decorations, your don’t want to deck your home in bright lights and an avalanche of “Happy Holidays”-inspired decor.
Bottom line? It is possible to sell your home and decorate it for the holidays—as long as you decorate with potential buyers (and your home sale) in mind.
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many people to reexamine where they live—and in response, many are choosing to relocate.
But how many people are looking to relocate—and what’s driving those relocation decisions?
A recent survey from LendingTree found that nearly half (46 percent) of respondents were planning to relocate in the next year—and that number was even higher for people who can work remotely (64 percent).
The biggest factors driving relocation decisions included:
- A desire to reduce living expenses (44 percent);
- Feeling their current home was too small (27 percent); and
- Looking for different features in a home (27 percent)
So, what does that mean for you? If you’ve been thinking about relocating and buying a new home? You’re not alone. And if you’ve been thinking about selling, with so many Americans considering relocation in the near future, many of those people are going to be in the market for a new home—making now a great time to list.
