Keep Hillsboro buyers in mind when putting out seasonal decorations
No matter how eager you are to sell, there are certain times of year when your home will see an influx of visitors and you won't be able to resist putting out seasonal decorations. Successfully presenting a listing during a holiday or other celebration can be done, however, and as long as you keep the decorations conservative and follow a few golden rules, it may even draw more buyers to your Hillsboro real estate.
If you'll be changing the decor of your home for a holiday such as Christmas, Independence Day or Halloween, let your real estate agent know. He may have a few pointers as he's familiar with your house, and may want to check on the finished result before bringing buyers around.
The Hillsboro market contains many luxury and upscale homes, so be careful not to make your home look unappealing with paper and plastic decorations. A patriotically themed wreath is a welcoming touch for the front door in July, whereas a shiny plastic flag banner hung from the mantle could reflect badly on the quality of the entire room's finishes.
If you need a few understated touches to fill out your seasonal or holiday decorating, try exploring the local shops in the Pearl District. A one-of-a-kind wooden, metal or glass item could strike the fancy of a buyer and make yours the most memorable of the MLS listings in Hillsboro, OR.
