Is it time to dig into your stores of the bland, boring, generic, or dull decorative items?
Yes, if you are merchandising your property for sale, it is time to make the old switcheroo!!
When buyers view your property, they are interested in the actual “bones” of your home. They are not going to be seeking financing based on all of your belongings coming with the property. They are not there to buy your “stuff”.
Buyers are also limited on time and excess imagination. I mention buyers being limited on their visualization skills because the buying process can be hectic and daunting. The buyer’s head is already consumed with the mounting finicky details. This is why it is important to make the buyer’s decision effortless for them.
If they have to struggle to look past your attractive distractions in order to determine the property’s over-all condition, features, and available floor-space, frustration is very likely to take over and force the buyer over to the next listing.
Even though you may be a very talented Paper-toll creator, and even though you and your family are very entitled to enjoy your creations all over the walls in YOUR HOME, a new potential owner of your home will simply have a hard time visualizing their own belongings there.
Pack up your own personal touches, and dig into your stored, more “boring” décor, and create that warm and inviting, yet neutral blank-slate, and you will find you will sell your property in a timely manner!
What could be better than having a head-start on packing for your upcoming move to your new home?
If in doubt regarding where to start, and where to stop, your Professional Home Stager can help you neutralize your property in order to appeal to the widest audience possible.
