Can you overly decorate your home if you’re selling at Christmas?

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. The Christmas TV adverts are airing, the lights are up in our local towns and festive cheer is spreading fast!

Therefore, it’s only human nature that you’ll want to decorate your home and get in the Christmas spirit. However, what do you do if you have your property on the market?

The decorations, tinsel and sparkle you like could very well put potential purchasers off. Decking your halls is very much like the colour of paint you choose for your walls; it’s your personal preference. So, a little neutrality is advisable when it comes to home much glitter and sparkle you spread throughout your home.

We’d also suggest neutrality when it comes to exterior illumination and decoration. You might have the reindeer that sit proudly on your roof throughout December and we’re sure they look great. However, think of the impression you want potential purchasers to have when they pull up outside your property.

With Michael Anthony’s effective marketing of your property, this should be the only Christmas your property is on the market, so next year’s Christmas can be looked forward to with excitement. As you won’t be selling your property next year, you can decorate it to suit your personal tastes!

If you are selling your property in the new year, make sure you take down all interior and exterior decs in very good time. If a potential purchaser comes to view in March and you still have your exterior lights up, it might not set a preferential start to the viewing.
