Gourmet Kitchen with Spacious Food-Prep Island. What Were They Thinking ?

By
Real Estate Agent with Serving Mentor, and all of Lake County, Ohio

I was looking through the available homes today.  I have a buyer who is very "kitchen conscious."  I guess you could easily say that having a nice spacious kitchen is one of her top "hot buttons."

So you can just imagine how "up" I felt when I read in the comments... all about the "gourmet kitchen" with all the 42-inch hanging cabinets, the oodles of counter space, and the over-sized gourmet food-prep island.

                                  

If you can imagine all of that... you can then probably imagine how UN-excited I was when I saw the actual picture of this wonderful, spacious gourmet kitchen.  And... just as was written... it has its very own "over-sized gourmet food-prep island."

Ummmm... anybody see an island here ?  I think there's one her somewhere.  I am guessing that neither this Listing Agent nor this seller... used the services of a home stager in preparing to market this home.

So, just how quickly would you jump to your computer keyboard to email this lovely picture to your ready-to-buy buyer ?  What were they thinking ?

All it takes is a few minutes to clear away the clutter even if it is only to take a picture.

"It only takes a moment"--the song from Hello Dolly" comes to mind.  Put the clutter away, the buyers will stay---leave it out, the buyers will doubt----that they can live without clutter.

Carolyn, this is too much! Brag about a large counter and then take a picture of it jammed with stuff! Is that to show how much junk it can hold? lol That would NOT excite any of the buyers we work with :)

Hahaha - that's a fast-food gourmet kitchen, underneath all the clutter.
