Home Staging Tip: Depersonalize your home before putting it up for sale
In part 3 of the series on Home Staging by Remax, we take a look at the need to depersonalize the home. Since the owner has likely lived in the home for a number of years, it has taken on his personality, displaying his photographs, trophies and furniture, along with his personal choices in colors and accents.
A buyer, coming to view the home, needs to be able to ‘visualize’ themselves in the home, and this become difficult if the buyer is overwhelmed with a multitude of personal items exhibiting the sellers personal life and tastes.
In order to help the potential buyer in their decision, home sellers are well advised to:
- Remove family photos and keepsakes
- Remove personal trophies
- Remove potentially offensive items (Hunting trophies such as bear-skins, etc)
