Inspired by Nature, When Selling Your Home, Remember that Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder. A Bit of Humor and of course a photo or two for fun.
There are many home sellers that think their homes are just awesome and feel that all their improvements should make their home sell for more. When they are observed by the Buyer, they may or may not be so awesome.
That pink carpet in the living room faded around the windows is a look from the 60's. Yes, I understand you hardly ever used it. And that blue faded shag carpet in the bedroom is lovely but no Buyer would want it. I just saw something move in that shag carpet. Do you have a pet mouse?
And those beautiful white formica counters in the Kitchen ( only slightly scratched and the worn thin finish on the tops does not actually add character) are really not that appealing.
And that splintering sand box that your kids stopped playing in 10 years ago is not really a big plus for the Buyers with little kids. It is right in the middle of the yard and the weeds have begun to flower in it.
Yes, that dark paneling that you and wife put up with no trim in the family room could probably be painted but it would also take a good bit of re-nailing so it apears that that the walls are actually flat.
Oh, and that nasty yellow popcorn ceiling that you have painted a sharp white a few years ago ( now a gross shade of grey and yellow) , while a real eye catcher doesn't catch the eye quite the the way you may be imagining it.
Yes, the beauty is in the eye of the beholder but Mr and Mrs Seller, if you really want me to market this home as upgraded and beautiful, I suppose it would only be possible if we can find buyers that have really severe astigmatism.
This is your's truly- Moi, getting the shot!
