3 Tips on Holiday Decorating while Listing!
This time of year is a slower pace, fewer houses for sale as many postpone until after the holiday.. Well, this is (and has been) not at all a typical year! So, it is also known Buyers are moer serious to buy now, before/during the holidays – as there usually is fewer options.
Our team would love to share our top 3 tips on decorating while listing. Oh, & if we missed any – please do leave a note in the comments, sharing is caring!
1. Clean & Less Clutter.
Our team considers this an ‘Ever-green’ tip. It is one that is useful all year, all situations when it comes to listing properties! Yes, we empathize that this can be a daunting task.

You are essentially creating a great new habit by putting it in your calendar to ‘de-clutter’ spaces in your home (& office, too). This is a great foundation and often the first step in having a successful listing.
2. Marketing Media Before Decorating

Trust us when we say that Buyers want to focus on the property, not the decorations!
