You followed your Realtor’s suggestions to declutter and de-personalize your home so that any potential buyers can picture their family living in your house instead of your family. But now the holiday season has arrived and you’re stressing out about all of your decorations and traditions and wondering how to handle it. What should you do? The most important thing is don’t let your house being on the market interfere with your family’s traditions and enjoyment of the holidays. Here are the top three things to remember that can lower your stress and increase your holiday cheer.
1. Chill. This is still your home, the home where you and your family are living and making priceless holiday memories.
2. Holiday decorations are pretty and holiday baking smells great. This combination can even make your house more attractive to any potential buyers
3. The market slows down considerably over the holidays. For the most part, only serious buyers are out looking at houses this time of year. And a serious buyer has different priorities. Holiday decorations won’t deter a buyer with limited time to choose their new home.
