Sanibel Real Estate Blog: Staging for the Holidays

Should you list your home during the holidays?  While it may be a pain to keep a home tidy and ready to show during their busiest time of year, there are compelling reasons to market a house in November and December, especially in the Sanibel real estate market as northerners thoughts turn to a warm second home.

We say go ahead and do it, but maybe not to the extent you would decorate if you weren’t selling your home. The holidays offer an opportunity for sellers to enhance their home’s charm. For instance, they can use mistletoe, tinsel and other subtle props to grab prospects’ attention; choose color palettes that complement the traditional colors of the season and allow holiday decor to blend in seamlessly.

Traditional Christmas decorations such as metallic gold, silver and bronze design touches can also lighten up dark spaces. And lightly scented holiday soaps, candles and even simmering apple cider can create a warm and cozy atmosphere. Holiday lighting creates a natural ambiance, one that most buyers are looking for as they imagine their family in the home.
