Home Tour Highlights

April 17th, 2015 · 1 Comment

I went on a Realtor home tour yesterday and saw very nice homes.  There is always a seller or two that doesn’t get the memo on home staging or home presentation.  Here are two examples:

Collections on display.  You can’t tear your eyes away from all that stuff.  Many of the home’s rooms were like this.  Hard to remember the house and its positive features in this condition.  I wonder if instead of the seller doing an inevitable price reduction (let’s say $5,000), that they move out instead and spend the $5,000 on rent and storage.

Personal items.  I did a double take at this home’s bathroom.  No one wants to see a feminine hygiene product wrapper!
