When you’re planning a winter home sale, make sure to keep the essential tenets of staging in mind: Buyers need to see themselves in your home.

If you decide you cannot live through a holiday seasons without decorating your home, try to keep the decorations to a minimum. Don’t block or cover up important selling features such as fireplace mantels, stairs, and stained-glass windows. 

  • Tone down the size of tree. In place of a 10-foot tree, try decorating a table-top or smaller version.
  • Stack wrapped presents in a closet or in one corner.
  • Resist the urge to hang banners and use greenery instead such as evergreen or rosemary garlands.
  • Display centerpieces made from pine cones or other wintry pieces of nature.
  • Never leave candles burning unattended.
  • Set a plate of cookies on the counter, next to festive paper napkins for guests.
