|No, this is not my house, but it is a model home in Florida.|
His reply: That is so you.
Hey, I don't watch HGTV for pure entertainment reasons! The last thing potential buyers want to see is "your stuff" when they walk into a house. Including your kids photos, artwork, what you read, the bills you pay...
Speaking of bills, I've put our bills in a drawer.
Husband: Why would you do that? Are you afraid they might pay our electric bill?
Anyhoo, the point is cleaning and decluttering isn't always enough. Buyers have to be able to envision themselves in your home and not be thinking, "gee, their kids are slobs..."
|Our son's "stuff." Is that an empty water bottle in there?!?|
So clean off that refrigerator, put away as many photos as you can and allow your buyers to imagine themselves living in their 'new home.'
Spoken like a true house-selling veteran. (FYI- this is the fifth house we've sold.)
