How a Home Can Be Staged for a Holiday Occasion
Holidays bring a lot of stress to people every year. It is even more stressful if a homeowner is trying to sell their home during the holidays. After all, anyone who is looking to purchase a home is probably going to postpone their efforts until after the holidays. They aren’t going to preoccupy themselves with house-hunting at the moment. On top of that, sellers must contend with the cold Tulsa weather outside while trying to stage their home to look beautiful.
However, you shouldn’t get discouraged by all these pressures if you’re trying to sell your home during the holidays. There is a way you can use the holidays to your advantage in this situation. You can do that by staging your home to make it appear more festive and fun for the holidays. Make it a place where buyers would want to go to celebrate the season.
You can get started with the special “holiday staging” strategy by choosing the right colors, décor, and lighting for the rooms of your home. For instance, your lighting should not include vibrant white fluorescent lights that make you feel like you’re in a doctor’s office. Use creative light sources like string lights, candles, lanterns, or any other lighting source which is appropriate for holidays.
Next, you’ll want to emit a holiday aroma into the air. Use candles or incense that provide a gingerbread, peppermint, or honey aroma. This will create a relaxing ambiance in the home where buyers won’t want to leave. As for your furniture, some of it should be removed anyway during the staging process. Holiday décor doesn’t really require furniture anyway because the idea is to declutter your home rather than add clutter.
On the other hand, you could leave a few pieces of furniture and put a colorful cover over them. Red, green and white are the three best colors to have during the holidays, especially if your wall colors have neutral tones. The rest of the decorations can include your classic holiday décor. Think about Christmas trees, hanging bulbs, tinsel, and holiday-themed illustrations on the walls. Just get creative and do something unusual.
If you can create an environment which does a good job of spreading holiday cheer, then you’ll make prospective Tulsa buyers very happy. They’ll start imagining the holiday events that they’re going to host in your home in the future and how wonderful it will be. If that’s the case, they may be ready to make you an offer to purchase your Tulsa home before the holidays are even over.
