It’s one of those things every agent talks about – when getting your house ready, one of things you need to do is ditch the family photowall.
I can see both sides of this argument – on the one hand its easier for buyers to picture themselves there if your happy mugs aren’t everywhere. On the other hand, a naked wall with the ghostly outlines of where your pics were look more stark and show the age of a house. That brings up another issue – how much effort do you put into getting the place ready?
I recently sold one of my rental homes. In an effort to get top dollar, I sanded and finished the hardwood floors, replaced aging appliances, painted every wall then cleaned, cleaned and cleaned some more.
If a seller is serious about selling their home in this economy a few family photos are fine, but decluttering – painting and making the house as clean as possible are the keys to successfully showing your home for sale. If you’re thinking of selling your home visit me at www.robsellsknoxville.com!
