The cold breeze, the nippy air, the crowd of shoppers, and the festive decorations everywhere are sure signs that the holidays are coming. This holiday conjures a lot of tradition, and one of these is making a wish list. Children are busy writing their lists of things they want to receive from their parents and old Saint Nick, but the fun doesn't have to stop at childhood!

In 2021, home prices rose significantly, so if you're thinking about selling, it's a good time to put your house on the market (yes, even during the winter!). If your home could talk, what do you think it would want this holiday season to make it more enticing to potential buyers?

Here are some three things to add to your holiday wish list for your home:

1. A New Paint Job

If your home has been in the same color palette for a few years, a new fresh look will spruce it up for the holiday season and beyond! You can choose to repaint with your current color scheme. But if you want to be adventurous, you can select a new color palette and give your home a contemporary vibe. Your imagination only limits the color combination. You can turn to the internet for inspiration, but be adventurous and don't be afraid to try something new.

2. A Deep Clean

Preparing your house during the holiday season need not be expensive. Sometimes all your house needs is a good, thorough cleaning. It can be as simple as unleashing your inner Marie Kondo and decluttering your house by getting rid of things you don't need. 

Then, you can start to vacuum and dust all the places you think need it. If you have carpets that have been worn over time, you can give them a good shampoo to restore them to their former glory. Of course, you can do this yourself, but if you want, you can also go the professional route and have someone come clean your house. If you're going to go the extra step, you can also update your cleaning supplies and tools in the house by getting a new vacuum or a steam mop.

3. A New Sofa

If you've wanted to get a new sofa for a long time, this holiday is an excellent excuse to gift your house with one. There's nothing like a fresh, comfortable sofa to add to the home's appeal. With so many year-end sales going on, you'll be able to find a great deal! If you're thinking about selling your home, you'll, of course, be able to take your new sofa with you, and you may even be able to use it while staging your current home.

Thinking of selling?

These tips may help you transform your house into somebody’s dream home! With the help of your trusted real estate agent, your house is on its way to finding its new owner this season.
