Most of you know we just put our home on the market to sell. I decided to de personalize the house a little bit of my decor.
We are getting a lot of young first time home buyers looking at this house and they seem to like stream line and sleek looking homes.
Well my chippy shabby home is certainly not modern or sleek lines.
Younger buyers seem to have a hard time seeing past decor and looking at all the up grades the house has to offer.
One realtor as hard as she tried to get her young buyers to see the hard wood floors throughout and top of the line stainless steel appliances, newer furnace, air conditioner and windows and roof etc. etc. they just could not see past my decor.
Some buyers are hung up on decor and wanting move in ready homes that fit their taste. While that is great they still have to be educated on how costly upgrading things in a home can be. Most of that has been done in this home.
Most of the feed back has been very positive and we have had a few couples come back for a second look already. So for one week on the market I think that is great.
With all of this said Terry and I decided on Saturday to take down the vintage door divider wall between my office and the dining room.
|So the divider wall before. Loved that this divided my office area from the dining room.|
|The divider wall came down to open up the space.|
|Hoping buyers will see this space back where my office is currently could be a perfect place for a dining table leaving the rest of the room open for other possibilities such as a family room.|
|Most of my personal stuff has been removed and packed up to be moved. I wanted to keep the wall free of too much decor. This way the buyer can see how neutral the walls are for their decor choice.|
|The before. I took a lot of my personal style down and packed it away.|
|I added a few things back on the wall but not much. I wanted to not have it be to stark but I wanted the buyers to be able to envision their style in this room.|
