Holiday Staging Tips

By Jason Boone

Are you planning on selling your Bend Oregon home during the holidays?

Now is a great time for you to sell your home because the Holidays will bring many people to Bend to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas with their families and you can attract buyers to your home by staging your home for the holidays.

In this post I will cover 7 Tips for Staging Your Bend Oregon Home for the Holidays so it will sell.

Tip 1 – Less Is More

Although you might have the urge to go “all out” when decorating your home remember that less is always more and you should strategically place holiday decorations like centerpieces so they don’t overwhelm the home.

Tip 2 – Choosing Complimentary Decorations

During the process of staging your home for the holidays make sure you choose complimentary decorations that won’t clash with the color schemes in the rooms of your home.

Tip 3 – Decorate Awesome Features in Your Home

Does your home have a great mantel over the fireplace or other awesome features you want to draw attention to? Use holiday decorations to draw attention to those features so buyers will be able to envision themselves living in your home during the holidays.

Tip 4 – Focus on the Lights This Year

When it comes to decorating the outside of your home during the holidays you should focus strictly on lights to decorate your home because, other decorations like a blow up Santa Claus, or Snowman, may seem tacky to some home buyers even though you may love it.

Tip 5 – Choose the Right Christmas tree

Although you may be tempted to choose a huge Christmas tree make sure you choose a tree which will look just right in the space you plan on placing the tree during the holidays.

For example: Choose a tall tree for a space with a tall ceiling and a smaller, skinny tree for a small, narrow space.

Tip 6 – Make Your Home Warm and Toasty

There’s no denying that it’s going to be cold during the winter, especially in Bend, but you can keep buyers in your home longer by turning up the heat in your home and even lighting a fire in the fireplace because, this will also help buyers to envision themselves living there.

Tip 7 – Offer Delicious Treats to Buyers

Last of all, but most important, another key to success when it comes to staging a home during the holidays is to bake cookies and have other delicious treats like apple cider on standby for buyers.

Using yummy treats will once again keep buyers in your home longer and help them to start talking about your homes price with your listing agent.
