Property sellers can take comfort in the fact that buyers touring their homes during the holiday season probably are serious about making a purchase. Sprucing up a residence by decorating for the holidays is recommended, but it is important not to go overboard. Sellers should put up a single Christmas tree, but avoid putting gifts under it. They could put up holiday lights and a wreath outside, meanwhile, but they should avoid inflatable characters on the lawn. Additionally, they should hang stockings -- though not ones with names on them -- and use cinnamon pine cones or mild potpourris to freshen up the room. Experts say sellers should keep in mind that buyers will want to imagine their own holiday celebrations in the home.
