Yes there is a difference between Living in a home and Selling a home.
Living in a home is all about your lifestyle. It is about convenience and comfort.
Your concern is about being able to see the TV from all the chairs in the family room or fitting in that perfect cabinet for your treasured collection.
Living in a home means the booster seat stays on the chair in the kitchen all the time. It could mean the dining room becomes a playroom. The guest room could also be your sewing room or computer room.
If you want to keep something in case you need it again some time it goes in the closet or into the basement. It's your space and it fits your lifestyle.
Selling is about the buyer. The focus of the whole house has to change so that it 'talks' to the buyer.
Now your house has to have good traffic flow everywhere the buyer goes. The rooms need to open up right away when the buyer steps inside.
It is more important that the buyer doesn't have to sqeeze past a piece of furniture than it is to see the TV head on.
Those conveniently placed items are clutter to the buyer. That extra display cabinet full of treasures is making the room look smaller. Those drapery treatments are blocking valuable natural light. The booster seat needs to come off the chair for viewings.
That dining room you turned into a playroom needs to show it's true purpose or your home is missing one of its features.
Your multipurpose guest room needs to just be a bedroom again.
Staging your home makes the switch from Living to Selling. It makes the house flow.
The buyer will be able to see past you and your lifestyle. They will be able to imagine fitting their lifestyle into your house.
SOLD is what it's all about.
