HOME (on the market) for the Holidays!

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

Thanksgiving is merely a week away! YOU are selling your home - it's currently on the market. YOU are also hosting Thanksgiving this year - what to do, what to do.

It's understandable you want your home to look festive for Aunt Jane and the cousins who are flying in from Oregon - however; you don't want to frighten would-be buyers either!

You can STILL have very "tasteful" holiday decor AND make your holiday seasonally inviting!

Bring the outside IN - nature-inspired Fall elements will look great for your holiday and will appeal to would-be buyers!

A recent walk through a local Pottery Barn store is certainly a quick class on using nature to highlight the season!

If you have special activities planned at your home for your out of town guests, you can ask your listing agent to note your listing accordingly so no showings take place on a particular day OR you could ask her to temporarily take it off the market for 1 or 2 days will you entertain your visitors.

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
