Selling San Antonio, Texas homes, a Realtor can't help but notice that the homes selling quickly and for the best prices are what Buyers (not necessarily Sellers), consider "move-in ready". It is always been interesting to me that homes can be perfectly move-in ready yet contain WALLPAPER. Buyers will reject it right there on the Internet and will not even want to go see the home; despite a great floor plan, great pricing, and a great neighborhood. It's a regional bias, it's just not considered current here.
Firstly, let us be clear, I actually like WALLPAPER. It's like that - totally individual.
Secondly, let us also be clear, WALLPAPER is the kiss of death in a resale home.
Interestingly enough, Buyers will love a metallic painted dining room wall, but will first ascertain that it is not the dreaded WALLPAPER. Of course a glamorous and expensive metallic WALLPAPER would be easier to fit into an upscale feel of a home than the stripes, dots, and florals that were so common 20 years ago, and still seen too often in homes that are 10+ years old.
When selling your home in San Antonio Texas, be prepared to remove the WALLPAPER. If you're moving anyway, what do you care? Trust me, that WALLPAPER is unlikely to be attracting people to your home, and is more likely to have them crossing it off their list of possibilities to come out and view in person.
Come on! Let's do what it takes to get it SOLD!
