What Gilligan's Island Taught Me about Real Estate - Part Two

If you read Part One of this series, you'll know that one of my favorite shows when I was growing up was Gilligan's Island.  And how the show can be a great teacher for real estate!

Today's post is all about staging.  Whether you live in a mansion or a modest hut, the key word is that you live in it.  But when you are trying to sell that home, you have to take some of the trappings of your everyday life out of the picture.

Do you like to have a handy plastic clothes hamper next to your dresser to hold your very visible dirty clothes and underwear?  Send it to a deserted island!

Is your home filled with lots of family photographs or erotic art?  Send them to a deserted island!

Do you have quirky collections that include more than three of any given item in a category?  Pack ‘em up and send them to a deserted island!

As you'll see from this cute commercial spoof of Gilligan's Island, it doesn't have to take too much time or money to turn your home from a well lived in house that is not quite ready for sale, to a home that is going to stand head and shoulders above the competition when it comes time to market your home!

This is a super example to give sellers about home staging.  I was a huge Gilligan fan growing up too!

Nice job that hut. I used to watch that show back in the 60s and re-runs in the 70s.
