Selling a home during the holidays can be difficult, because most people have other plans for their money during this time of year. Plus, with so many people being on vacation for much of the last part of the month, it is challenging to set any sort of appointment. However, there are still people out there looking for homes in Newnan GA, even during the holidays, so here are some tips to help your house look irresistible to any potential buyers. After all, the faster you sell your current home, the sooner you can settle in to your brand new Piedmont Residential home.

Now is the time of year when most people bring out boxes of decorations. However, before you do that, you should get some empty boxes and start packing up any clutter and collections of tchotchkes. Less is more when it comes to selling your home and the fewer visual distractions buyers have, the easier it is for them to see their own belongings in place. Ideally, you want your home to look spacious and open, so put anything extraneous in storage if at all possible.

That said, you can certainly incorporate some holiday decorations into your home and, if chosen and placed well, they can enhance elements of your home, creating a cozy, welcoming atmosphere. Try to keep the decorations to an elegant minimum, focusing more on neutral decorations, such as wreaths, bowls of pine cones, decorative snowflakes, and nutcrackers.

Whatever you choose, make sure it complements the room’s color palette. If you have a room full of cool tones, avoid warm, vivid reds and instead focus on white and silver decorations. For an earth-toned room, jewel tones of cranberry, pine green, and gold will look elegant and festive.

While you don’t want to overwhelm any room with decorations, you should think about major selling points of your home, such as tall ceilings, arches, mantles, and bay windows. Use your decorations to draw attention to these features. A tall Christmas tree shows off those high ceilings, mistletoe hung from an arched doorway catches people’s eye, and a bay window with some beautiful candlesticks or seasonal pillows and throws creates an inviting setting.

As tempting as it may be to put up all of your decorations and lights, inside and out, all of those decorations can be overwhelming for potential buyers and can mask the real appeal of homes in Newnan GA. A simple theme of a few key pieces in a uniform color scheme will make the appropriate festive statement without hiding your home’s glory. And don’t forget to put a pot of apple cider, or just some water and seasonal spices on to simmer. The beautiful aroma will automatically put potential buyers into a happy mood and subconsciously help them remember your home as a comforting, welcome place they’d like for themselves.
