I know thst sounds silly...but it just might be. As a ASP home stager I come across many times. It sits in that room like it is king and it owns that room. Homeowners are so reluctant to give it up during the selling prrocess. If you have a room with one or two recliners greeting whoever walks in that room it may be time to move it to storage. Once you get your house on the market "'the way you live in your home is not the way you sell your house" It is now a product, so you have to present it like one.
Think of it like this...your house is now one of 6 products on the grocerers shelf. They are all pretty much the same, same size, same square footage same amenities. So how are we going to get the buyers/consumers to take your house off the shelf.?
Recliners and big TV's take over a room,
I council my sellers to think of it like this. You are moving right? So start packing everything up you don't need on a daily basis. Next look at your house through the buyers eyes. Can you see the focal point of the room, does your firerplace have "stuff" all over the mantel, does your kitchen counters have all those little things you make piles for? Not de cluttering,, and removing furniture will cost you money. If you are planning to get rid of it , then just do it now. Are you willing to leave equity on the table? Think about it, is that recliner worth $5000.
