People are often living with rooms that have no designated use. At one time, it was their child's bedroom, but the child grew up. Now underneath, it is still a bedroom with a good deal of storage in between and on top.
This is where the moving boxes are being sent once packed. Would this impress a potential buyer? Only if you are leaving all your stuff with the house. Otherwise, they want to see what they are buying.
DON'T MAKE THEM USE THEIR IMAGINATIONS!
Buyers want to look into the dining room and see their family sitting down to a holiday meal. They want to visualize themselves in the recliner with the remote in hand. Little Suzie will have this bedroom and Bobby, the one down the hall because he is older.
They know the big fluffy towels do not come with the house, but already they have one hanging nearby for a nice bubble bath. How convenient and thoughtful of the owners.
Are those people insane ? No - just normal like the rest of us.
So give them what they want- their dream house just waiting for them to move in.
