This is the time of year my phone starts ringing from sellers wanting me to list their home. This week I met with a really sweet couple who have a home to sell in Sun City Grand. They have a very nice home with some great features.
The problem? The lady of the house is a collector of dolls and figurines and they were EVERYWHERE! Before I said a word she knew she was going to have to get rid of them but I could tell she really didn't want to and wasn't completely buying into my telling her that buyers would have a tough time seeing past her things.
Preparing a home to sell can be a very inconvenient undertaking but I can't stress enough how important it is. The few times I have let clients have their way or haven't insisted they define spaces better, were the times the listings languished on the market.
Below I have included a few clips from Designed to Sell on HGTV, a show that should be required viewing for anyone thinking about selling their home.
