If you’re in the process of selling your home, you may be wondering if it’s appropriate to decorate for the holidays. Generally speaking, we think that it’s a great idea to add a few holiday touches to your home. A festive tree, a menorah in the window, or sparkly lights around the mantle can all transform your home into a warm, cozy gathering place in the winter.
That said, we caution sellers to not overdo it! Too many decorations can become distracting and overshadow your home’s best features. We also suggest avoiding any artificial fragrances, such as candles, plug-ins, or aerosol sprays. If you wish to freshen up your home, we recommend a subtle essential oil diffuser (frankincense is an excellent holiday scent) or gently boiling cinnamon sticks prior to showings. For specific recommendations, be sure to consult your EveryHome agent.
