Staging Your House During The Holiday Season in Athens

Selling a home during the holiday season can be more of a challenge than during other seasons, but it can be done. The good news is that you’ll have far less competition. It’s just that staging your house during the holiday season in Athens should enhance that style rather than working against or detracting from the style. Say, for example, your home is a traditional style. In that case, you’d want to use vintage or classic holiday-themed staging decorations. Contemporary decorations, on the other hand, would detract from your home’s style.

Accentuate the Positive Features

Also, in staging your house during the holiday season in Athens, you need to make sure that you draw attention to and accentuate your home’s positive, most attractive features. For example, if you have an large attractive fireplace, you can garnish and decorate it so as to draw buyers’ eyes toward this feature. Or, again, if you have high ceilings (which many buyers want), you can accentuate that feature by filling spaces with tall, narrow pieces or potted ornamental trees.

Work With/Complement the Color Scheme

You have, of course, already eliminated all the brash idiosyncratic colors in rooms and repainted in soothing neutral tones, right? The next step, then, in staging your house is to work toward complementing that color scheme. So in holiday staging, choose accent colors that don’t clash with the color palette, which generally means avoiding a lot of loud Christmassy greens and reds. Complementary blues and neutrals, as well as silver, white, and gold, will work well. Just make sure to keep the accent colors consistent throughout.

Let Some Light In

During the holiday season, days are shorter, the sky is often overcast, and natural light is often in short supply. So an important part of staging your home is getting down those heavy drapes and light-obscuring blinds. Also, make sure there is plenty of artificial lighting in your home so that buyers can actually see all the effort you’ve put into staging. And don’t forget to light a fire in the fireplace for some cheery light.

Remember Curb Appeal

Don’t forget that staging your house in Athens during the holidays also includes the outside of your home. Curb appeal is important no matter the season. So go easy on all those bright, garish, multi-colored lights and inflatable figures. Strive for holiday elegance instead with white lights and natural elements like pumpkins, greenery, and seasonal flowers.

Go Easy on the Religious Decor

Even though many of the holidays during this season are religious holidays – Christmas and Chanukah, for example – you don’t want to wind up offending potential buyers in staging your house. So keep recognizably religious décor to a minimum and stick to décor that is religious-neutral. It would be safer to stick to things like evergreen branches, wrapped gifts, and fall/winter objects.

Staging Your House For The Holidays

Although you’ll have less competition when selling your home during the holidays, there will also be fewer buyers out and about. The good news is that these buyers are usually highly motivated. Still, great showings are a crucial ingredient for successful selling. And unless you’re a professional stager, you may not have the necessary expertise. This is where a good agent with staging experience can be a great asset and valuable ally.
