Your decorated home may be more beautiful in December than at any other time of the year. The key to having it appeal to prospective buyers is to keep the decorations simple. It's wise to confine decorations to the living room. Have a beautiful tree that doesn't take up a great deal of floor space. Avoid featuring many displays or collections. To you, they may be beautiful, but to a prospective buyer, they may just be distracting. Put a beautiful, natural wreath on the front door. Although you will have fewer prospects call on you in December, those who do are more serious buyers.
