Thank you for the great article. I am in the process of offing my home for sale and have been agonizing over whether to decorate for the Christmas holiday as I always do or not (not wanting to alienate buyers). This article has helped me make up my mind that I will decorate as I usually do because it will accentuate the characteristics of my home.

Tish B,

Don't agonize over decorating for Christmas....Just do it!

I had my home on the market during Christmas time and I didn't make any adjustments. If anything, it helped because it showed that I could fit a beautiful tree in my living room. It also pointed out that I had a Christmas tree farm up the street from my home, which during that time of year was a big plus!

Just keep it tasteful and not too cluttered. You'll be good to go! :)
