7 TIPS


for selling your home


during the holiday season




The winter, let alone the holiday season, can be a challenging time for homeowners when selling their homes. To help, here is a list of the 7 most important ways to show off your property during the holidays:


1. Snow and ice: Walkways and driveways should be kept cleared at all times. Don't forget to clear the deck or patio too so potential buyers can see the value in your home.

2. Outdoor lights and decorations: Remember less is more when selling your home so keep it simple and tasteful. (An extra tip: An all white light look can increase curb appeal and make your home look more sophisticated)

3. Indoor decorations: Choose a smaller Christmas tree with minimal decorations to make your room look larger. Minimize the appearance of clutter by not displaying a large amount of wrapped presents.

4. Plants: Place miniature trees or boughs in urns by your front door or on the walkway to make your home look more inviting. Frost resistant plants such as kale can be placed out for a showing and don't forget some fragrant flowers for inside too.

5. Home sweet home: Simmer a pot of apple cider with cinnamon on the stove for every open house or showing. Also keep in mind that certain dishes may leave an odour in your home that some may not appreciate. Save a few of those holiday favourites for another day.

6. Photos: Display photos of your home's yards, garden, patio or deck from summer or spring to show potential buyers what your home looks like at different times of year.

7. Keep it cozy: A warm home is always more inviting. Be sure to have the heat set at a warm temperature for all showings and open houses.
