Less is Best
Over the years most people accumulate a variety of Christmas/holiday decorations- but if you’re selling your Cincinnati home don’t feel obligated to display everything.  Simple decorations both inside and outside are the best way to go.  

The giant inflatable Santa on the front porch which obstructs the view of the house followed by wall-to-wall decorations inside every room can be overwhelming and doesn’t provide buyers the opportunity to visualize themselves living there.  And make sure exterior cords running all over the property are secured or well marked so nobody trips.


Politically Correct
Restrain yourself from over the top religious or political decorations. A nativity scene placed outside is probably ok, however, when decorating the interior I think sellers need to show some restraint.  Try to keep decorations as neutral as possible.

Color Coordinated
Finally, use decorations that compliment or coordinate with your interior decorating.  We’ve all inherited or purchased funny obnoxious decorations that have become part of the holiday “tradition”.  While you have your house for sale- it’s best to leave those items in their boxes.

Think simple and elegant when it comes to holiday decorations while your property is listed for sale.
