For Your Consideration

It’s a short sale.  And the seller is sitting right there, watching TV.  Is there anything he could remove from this room to make it look more enticing to buyers?

What could he work on in the kitchen during commercial breaks?  Clearing off the counter, sink, and refrigerator?

And clear off the dining table and remove the multiple wall calendars?

Refrigerator Clutter

Too much stuff on the refrigerator.  It’s visually distracting.  We’ll deal with the cow collection later.

Please remove the towels from the sofas before taking the real estate photos.  And then remove other unnecessary items from this room. [Appleton, Wisconsin]

Look!  They’re paying attention to us already!  Three items were removed from the left side wall and three items removed from the right side wall.  It’s a start.  Don’t stop now.  Towels, stacks of papers, and the rug next please.

If these are the owners, they sure didn’t care about getting higher offers from buyers.  If these are renters, the seller should have kicked them out and repainted the house.
