With autumn approaching, it’s time for three traditional holidays coming up in quick succession; Halloween, Bonfire night and Christmas. The vast majority of people get excited for at least one of these events, and those with small children are probably used to making a big deal out of all three. As such, when looking to sell property around this time of year, it is well worth ensuring that your house is in keeping with the holiday spirit to help you sell your property quickly. Here is a quick guide on the little things you can do to give your property that holiday spirit!

1. Halloween


While we would suggest avoiding decorating your house with anything too gory or scary, there are a few spooky touches you can include to show off your house. A bowl of chocolate and sweets in the hallway will suggest to your viewers that you live in a friendly neighbourhood. Equally, if you consider your porch to be a selling point, then it’s an excellent location for a carved pumpkin.


2. Bonfire night


This is an excellent time to show off your garden, whether you are planning on having a bonfire, or getting the bbq out for one last cook-off. Not only will you show your buyers that your garden can be used for social events, but it may also trigger a sense of nostalgia, making them want your property even more.


3. Christmas


This really is the biggest holiday of the year, but try not to overdo it on the decorations. Too many festive ornaments may obscure the best features of your property, or make it look cluttered. Instead, ensure that you use a range of tasteful decorations while keeping the main selling points of your home visible.

I can't thank National Property Trade enough. I had my property on the market for 7 months with no interest, so checked an online property buyer expecting to take a hit. I chose their Assisted Sale product and I think I have probably ended up more than I would've done leaving it on the market, reducing it every few weeks. Gives me great relief that I don't have the stress of trying to sell anymore. If you are fed up of your estate agent, give National Property Trade a try.
