- Dirty underwear on the floor, many items, not just one
- Unmade beds - this is so much more common than you would believe
- Dirty dishes in the sink - not just from breakfast this morning, sometimes, days old
- Is leftover foods on the dining table a separate category or does it fit with the point above
- Bathrooms that look like they've never been cleaned with bottles and boxes of every personal care product on show
- Open suitcases with dirty laundry strewn all over the floor
- Here a living one, the owner lounging on her bed on the phone wearing - well, not very much (and the listing agent met me here)
- Sex toys on the side table - I won't go into detail here :)
- Enough religious items hanging on every inch of wall space, to make the place look like a cult den
Oh, I could go on but I think you get the message. Needless to say, I haven't yet met a Buyer willing to overlook any of these showing transgressions. If fact, they usually want to get out of the home as quickly as possible.
So, please, please get your clients to understand that their home will never sell if it looks like a college dorm room or like some religious sect has invaded the property. Now don't get all mad at me about the religious items, a few pieces here and there are fine, but when there is no more wall space left to hang one more religious item and that's the only decoration you have on the walls, you may have a problem selling the home.
I am out of excuses to give my clients – suggestions please.
