As the weather in Aurora, Illinois – is very mild and looks to remain so for the next few days, tomorrow I’m going to be taking down our outdoor Christmas decorations. For those who are selling aurora real estate, now is the time to do the same. There is nothing that screams “I don’t care about my home” more clearly than Christmas decorations up until Easter. So, if you have time over the next few days, do the same. It will help keep your home from looking like a holiday hangover. Especially if you are selling your home, noone likes to see Christmas lights linger on past New Years. Taking them down promptly is a good way to get started preparing for the spring real estate market. It’s also a great time to begin sprucing up the outside of the home so if you’re taking down the decorations, you can begin to plan for things to start warming up.
