You don’t have to go all Clark Griswold to show your holiday spirit. Decorations can be subtle, tasteful and inviting when a house is up for sale during the holiday months.
Sure, there are two sides to this: Some staging and real estate professionals assert that you shouldn’t decorate at all during the holidays, careful not to offend those who don’t celebrate the holiday. Others argue you should definitely decorate and that a festive house can welcome buyers. How much or how little you decorate may be open to debate with your home sellers. But if you are looking to add in some tasteful holiday decor this season toa home, here are some ideas:
1. Dress up the doorstep with a wreath and planter.Silver is shiny and can reflect the sun, making it a great choice to get others to stop and take notice of a home.

2. Highlight thefireplace mantelwith holiday décor to get this amenity to take center stage in the room.But don’t overcrowd it with decorations. Less is sometimes more, in this case.

4. Offer up some holiday treats to visitors.Filled candy bowls and cookies will be a welcome surprise and may make buyers want to linger.

5. Put up a tree but have it blend into the style of the home.The tree in this dining room below compliments the subtle hues used in this French Country styled room. Have the tree coordinate with colors already used in the home’s decor.

Just wanted to take a moment to recommend an outstanding real estate agent. About a year ago my wife and I looked into buying a new house. We looked at exit realty's website and the next morning we received a call from Joseph Schneider. He is a true professional with an outstanding personality he will instantly make you feel welcome as if you're working with a longtime friend. My wife had unusual requests for the property and Joseph listened and found the property meeting all our needs. He is patient and knowledgeable I would recommend him to all. We purchased our new home in August and since then Joseph has remained in contact, just checking in from time to time. You can look but I doubt you will find a better agent !"
