How do you want the buyers to remember your home?

By
Home Stager with Stage-Show-Sell

These are photos that I've taken of homes.   

As a buyer's agent for over 20 years I listened to buyer's comments when leaving a home.   I always encouraged them to write their thoughts on the MLS tickets that I provided them.

They would come up with Great house.  Felt clean, bright and ready to move into

OR  the house with the 3 ft ugly wall paper in the bathroom

moldy walls and bad wall paper

Or The house with all the stuff on the refrigerator

stuff all over the refrigerator

or better yet      The house with the moldy bread

Cari, that's really funny and it's the truth.

One time I was showing a house and I did my routine of ringing the doorbell, open the lock box, open the door and ring the bell again.

This was about lunch time and the husband/seller came home with his 'secretary' and forgot in his haste to check the answering machine for showings.

They didn't hear the bells knocks or key in the lock.

My clients called this the Afternoon Delight house.

They didn't buy it.

In reading this post, I'm reminded of some of the homes I've staged over the past 3 years, including the dog pee house (over a million and the wood flooring in the entry was stained and ruined by their dog. Fortunately, ??!! the owner was living there while it was on the market because I sure wasn't going to bring in any of my inventory.

Then there was the cat pee house (Staging to Live). They must have had 3-4 cat boxes, all in need of cleaning, and a 1 year old running around with easy access to each.....yucky!!

To this day, my husband and I still joke about the "indian food" house we looked at before buying our first house in 1990.  I can tell you exactly where the house is, 17+ years later. 

Talk about a lasting impression!

I love these post, "Afternoon Delight": is hilarious. 

Many sellers just don't understand the impression their home gives.  hahaha
