NH Home Selling Tips During The Holidays

Christmas TimeHolidays are special

Holidays are special and we often go all out in decorating and attempting to create that wonderful warm holiday feeling….but it can also be the time of year when you’re trying to sell your southern New Hampshire home. While I personally love to look at holiday decorations I know as a southern New Hampshire REALTOR that sometimes it’s just way too much.

Selling your southern New Hampshire home during the Holidays can be stressful!

We all love our special holiday decorations but when your home is on the market it might be best to keep some of them packed away. It’s hard to “live in” a home while it is on the market and keep your home feeling like it is still your home. But, as attached as we are, remember that “less is better” when it comes to decorations, family knickknacks and yes even family pictures.

Too many Decorations Too little Space

Often times a home will seem so much smaller when it’s filled with a large tree and decorations galore so maybe getting a smaller tree this year will serve you well.  Try looking at your home as a potential home buyer would…what is important to them is not how pretty your decorations are but will they have enough space for their own. If you fill every nook and cranny, have a super large beautiful tree that leaves little walk around room then most likely the buyer will “feel” that the home is too small for them.  Less is better!

The Scents don’t really make sense

Another important thing to be aware of is strong holiday scents. While you may think they smell nice they could in fact be a big turn off to a potential buyer who might wonder what orders you are trying to mask…especially if there is evidence of a pet in the home or if the buyer has allergies. Going very lightly on the holiday scents makes a lot of sense.

  1. Thank you Rich and Michelle! I totally agree that the buyers out now are very serious buyers! Thanks for visiting our blog and Merry Christmas to you and your families.

  2. The buyers that are still shopping around the holidays are often more serious than other times of the year. You have given great tips for sellers who are serious about keeping there homes listed during the holidays and attracting those buyers and competing against sellers who take their homes off the market until after the first of the year.

  3. Excellent tips for sellers during this holiday season.

  4. I agree Charles. Sometimes it is better to just take it off the market during the holidays. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  5. I see so many people making this mistake. It seems that a lot of people would be better off if they just took their homes off the market during the holidays.
