Unless it is a real steal, of course. No discrimination against Grannies.... Some Grannies have the coolest houses on the block. By Granny, I mean: dated, cluttered, old fashioned. I just showed a 52 year old woman houses in a hot neighborhood. One "Granny house" had been on the market for 2 years, with others around it selling quickly. It started out way overpriced when the market was still slow. It was very clean, not too much clutter. But the furniture was old and heavy. The drapes were dated. The china cabinet with figurines did the house no favor. My client is old enough to be a Granny, but the Granny factor put her off. The house continues to sit. I'd bet anything that a good stager could get the Granny out of that house and get it sold!
