It’s December and your house is on the Spring Texas real estate market. So the question is do you decorate or not?
Go ahead and decorate but do so within reason. The year that your house is on the market during the holiday season is not the year to recreate a scene from the Griswold’s Christmas vacation. Nor is it the time to display your collections of 50 snow globes and 100 Santa Clauses.
Scale down your decorations to a wreath, Christmas tree, and a nativity scene. You don’t need to be a bah hum bug but you don’t want to over do it and have your holiday decorations eat up valuable square footage. Buyers like spacious rooms and homes. They don’t like small rooms and cramped quarters.

This process was extremely difficult for me, as my father passed away last year. Jill listened to EVERY story I had, and there were a lot of them! She allowed me to share the memories of the house, which helped me prepare to let it go.
She is very knowledgeable in what to and what not to do in regards to getting the home ready to sell, what to tackle during the negotiation process and she made the closing extremely convenient. She was thoughtful enough to place the "sold" sign on the property a week in advance, to allow me time to process it all.
Paying constant attention to what is happening around your listing is one of JIll's many strengths. Her goal is to get you the most money for your property, and she has different strategies to that end result.
I not only gained a new realtor, but in JIll, I also gained a friend! I will be forever grateful for her through this tough process and I know my Dad would have loved her! "Thanks," will never be enough! read less
