Visual Distractions Everywhere

August 22nd, 2014 · 15 Comments

The seller had spent years collecting this and that and spent endless hours carefully placing each item in the perfect spot.  She wasn’t about to pack any of it for some picky buyer.  No way.

This is her home!

too much stuff knick-knacks items on display everywhere visual distractions poor bad home staging cluttered Peoria Arizona house for sale

No one is going to tell her what to do.

You’d expect her to live in a house that was stripped of her collectibles?  The nerve!

Buyers will just have to see past the clutter.

Will buyers notice the nice floor?

Buyers are instructed not to touch any of the items.

Overwhelmed.

Lost cause?

She could hire a professional home organizer.  Or a friend or neighbor kid.
