While following Kathy Somer's blog on faux staging last week (that topic was beat to death, but here it is if you were living under a rock and missed it...) something came up over and over again that I'd like to challenge address.
Stagers keep talking about tying their towels up with assorted doo-dads in order to keep anyone from using them or the bathroom period!
Well I have some news for you: we go to the bathroom too, just like everyone else. Especially when we have a 4+ hour tour.
Now, do you want us to rush through the house you just staged so lovingly or skip it alltogether in order to find a gas station bathroom?
When you have guests do you send them down the street or make them use a port-a-potty in the backyard? I didn't think so.
A Realtor with qualified buyers is probably going to be the most important guest you will ever have in your home, so treat them accordingly!
They're going to use the bathroom anyway, and it doesn't matter if you tie your towels up with barbed wire ... they will find a corner to wipe their hands on!
So may I suggest providing a basket filled with nice disposable hand towels! If you're lucky, they may just use one to wipe up the sink.
Whatever you do, do not put plastic over the toilet or tape it down to keep people from using it unless it's non-functioning or there is another bathroom that has been made available. A note directing them to it would be a good idea so that they don't have to go on a wild goose chase.
