I was showing a house the other day and marveled at the history behind this family. Obviously they had a large family. They had decorated in the 60's and 70's with flower prints and the kitchen had a country flare to it with the apple borders and the old fashioned spice rack and pot and pan holder hanging from the ceiling loaded with cooking utensils.
I knew they had a large family because the walls in each room and the hall ways were covered with family photos. The kitchen refrigerator was covered with school work and notices to remember so much you couldn't see the frig.
There were lots of shoes, piled and ready to fall onto the floor as you open the closet doors. Toys of many aged children were lined up neatly along every wall of each bedroom. The basement was like an obstacle course. We couldn't see the foundation wall...not because of drywall, it was just piled high with owners STUFF. Everywhere we looked there was more STUFF.
That really concerned the buyers. If we were to buy this home how long will it take them to move out so we could have possession. They were obviously concerned that the seller would leave a bunch of their STUFF behind that the buyer would need to get rid of.
It took us twice as long to see through this home. The buyer curiouslystopped and looked at all the family photos and Knick Knacks on display buy the seller. And there were a bunch of knick knacks to look at too.
If you want to get the most money out of selling your home I suggest you consult with your Real Estate professional. They will guide you as to what to have hanging on the walls and what not. The photo above is a perfect example of Less is More.
God Bless You and pray for all of our troops to come home safe and for our Country leaders to make the right choices to help us get through this turmoil.
