1. Declutter your home.
If you start by decluttering each room to the very basics and set up an organizational schedule, you can eliminate the stress of needing to have your home ready to show when a realtor calls.
2. Decorate for the holidays.
Decorating for the holidays doesn’t mean to go all out with your yard filled with inflatable snowman’s and reindeer’s but decorating your home with simple and elegant Christmas decor. Avoid oversized Christmas trees in the living room. You want to showcase the space that you have in your home so keep things to a minimum as much as possible.
3. Price to sell.

A good real estate agent will make sure all tips 1-3 are completely taken care of while making sure you and your family can continue to enjoy the holiday season without skipping a beat.
