If you’re thinking about waiting until spring to sell your home, reconsider now! The holidays show off your home at its most pristine, and you’re likely already cleaning to make your home ready for guests. Using a new trend in home selling called “Extreme Open Houses,” you could be one step closer to selling your home this holiday season. Extreme open houses offer catered refreshments, entertainment or music and prizes, but to us, this sounds like an average holiday party. Real estate resource Keeping Current Matters reported on this trend recently, and here are some great tips to throwing an extreme open house.
- First, consider throwing an extreme open house and opening your home to the public if you’re already thinking about throwing a holiday party for friends and family.
- Offer seasonal refreshments such as apple cider and hot cocoa to warm up chilly guests.
- Festive touches such as lighting and music help set the mood, but keep lighting bright enough to see the beautiful details of your home.
- Homes often look their best during the holidays, but remember to keep your holiday decor simple and tasteful. A well-organized home with coordinated, thoughtful decorations shows much better than one cluttered with mismatched furnishings.
Remember, your warm, inviting home will attract potential buyers, and your friends are likely to spread the word among their other contacts. Your holiday party turned open house may bring you the buyer you have been looking for!
