    Decorating our homes for the holiday season is something most of us look forward to as winter rolls into New York City. But if you are planning on selling your home and have a couple of showings planned for the next few weeks, holding off on the tinsel may be a better option for you this time around. After all, a clean house with as little clutter as possible makes it easier for home hunters to check out your home and imagine it as their own. As a result, an apartment that doesn’t go overboard with their holiday-themed decorations has a better chance of being bought as compared to homes that have it in excess.
