Messy short sale home.

This home was occupied while it was up for sale.  This is not an abandoned home.  The sellers lived here like this.

It went up for sale in August.  Some brave buyer wrote an offer in September.  And then waited and waited and waited for the bank to approve the short sale.  It finally sold in May.  Eight months later.

Family photos and collectibles will require a lot of time to pack up when this home sells.

They Didn’t Get the Memo

January 27th, 2016 · No Comments

Most buyers nowadays would prefer a home that’s neat and tidy, not cluttered.  Just saying.

It’s okay to pack it all away before selling.  You’d have to pack it anyway when the house sells.  Why not do it now and sell it faster and for more money?

Don’t let buyers get distracted by all of your stuff instead of focusing on the features of the house.

Ask a friend for advice on what to remove and tidy up if you are not sure.  Another suggestion:  take photos of your rooms and then look at them.  You’ll see things differently.
