When you put your home on the market, you don’t know how long it will be until it sells. That means that your family is still doing their day to day activities at the same time that you’re trying to keep your home show-ready.

Homeowners frequently ask if they should skip the decorating while their home is for sale. But while you are still living there, your family needs some sense of normalcy too. We suggest that rather than go all out with decorations, beginning with Halloween and going through Christmas and New Year’s Day, try narrowing it down to just a few festive exterior items such as a pumpkin, a basket of mums, and some gourds during the Autumn holidays. Celebrate the Winter days with an evergreen wreath or poinsettia. These may your home inviting but do not detract from its architectural details. Too much décor may make potential buyers think you have something to hide. It’s best to let the house speak for itself.
