#3 Reason Homes Don’t Sell ~ Cluttered Space!
Sellers are sometimes unwilling ti either make the effort, or unwilling to compromise how they live in their home during the time the home is on the market for showings. Serious sellers realize that by depersonalizing the home and removing unwanted clutter, it allows potential buyers to more easily visualize their own things in the home.
When you live in your own home day in and day out, you become comfortable with your own ‘things’. In many cases, however, your ‘stuff’ can make a room feel smaller than it actually is, and in some more extreme cases, your ‘stuff’ can completely distract someone from visualizing the potential of the room. We know you are proud of your kids from the large display area of their trophies, awards, and such, but for a buyer this is only a distraction.
Many Agents will make recommendations about ways to remove clutter or depersonalize your home. Some will even suggest that a professional home stager be brought in to completely maximize the space, and create a visually pleasing setting that buyers can visualize themselves in. The key to remember is not to take it personal, it may be uncomfortable, but your house needs to put it’s best foot forward in order to SELL!
