Decorating For Halloween and the Holidays When Your House is on the Market

With the holidays coming up many homeowners like to go all out in decorating.  However, if your house is on the market then special consideration should be given to how you decorate.

What not to do:
Don’t over decorate so buyers can’t see the house when they are looking.  Remember buyers are there to take a look at the house, if you clutter up the property with holiday decor then they will see the decorations more than the house.  It could also make your home feel smaller than it really is.

Bottom line is to remember when you are trying to sell your property during the holidays, going minimal and highlighting your home’s character is the way to go.
