The importance of “First Impressions” cannot be overestimated. While personal taste plays a major role in the decision to buy a home, it is important that your home appeals to a wide spectrum of Buyers. Few people can visualize a home as anything other than what they see before them. While it is not easy, it is important that Sellers let go of their emotional attachments and focus on what will bring the highest sale price. Remember that while it is emotional for you, in the end, it will be one of the biggest personal transactions in your lifetime. You want your home to feel warm and inviting, not intimidating or overwhelming. A clean canvas make it easier for a buyer to appreciate the strengths of a property.
