You never know. Stuff like this can turn off a lot of buyers, making it easier to swoop in and snatch up a deal!

Good morning Sheri Sperry - MCNE® ,

This is bizarre...I'd find it creepy sleeping in that room. You have to think what would appeal to the masses not what you like.

Sheri, all I can say is WOW.   Why would the listing agent not tell them to remove these, so distracting and awkward!

Good morning again Sheri. I agree it is a little creepy with the puppets above the bed, but the bathroom is nice here.

Sheri, I instantly got chills looking at those puppets. No thank you! I'm surprised it only took over two years to sell, I thought it may still be on the market.

That certainly would need a specific audience and it sounds like it needed some work, from the previous comments.

It reminds be of a "Victorian B&B" I stayed in thatw as so over the top I never wanted to go back. I think decluttering that starts with the puppets is a good idea.

Hi Sheri - Back in the olden times, when I had a commercial brokerage, B&B's were a specialty and I once had 7 of them listed at the same time. They take a long time to sell, even if they don't have puppets.

Hi Sheri

Well that's more than a bit odd as a theme, at least for me personally. I can see why this was a tough one to sell, although I don't think B and B's move quickly anyhow. But no doubt there are some who stayed there who loved it. Glad to hear it DID sell and has been redecorated. Guess the puppets did not convey!!

I've never really been drawn to puppets.  I guess there have been too many creepy horror movies that involve them over the years!

If the bed and breakfast is profitable . . . . It won't take long.

Good luck and success.

I'd remove all those puppets, dolls and artificial flowers before taking any pictures or showings.

Hi Inna Ivchenko - If the seller will let you!  Sometimes they get very upset when the subject comes up.

Sherry- there was an old Twilight Zone or something like that years ago involving ventriloquist and his dummy.  Since them, those things and puppets give me the willies.

Oh no Sheri Sperry - MCNE®,  I think I've had that Nightmare Before and I wouldn't want to face it in person...

So creepy. How do people sleep in that room? Not exactly the emotional and visual appeal a buyer is looking for!

As in all tihings, find the right buyer and it's gone in a day.   Not everyone likes the puppets.

Is this really a B&B? It looks like a guest room that might not be used very often. I'd have a hard time sleeping in the room, but as a real estate "professional", it wouldn't keep ME from buying the house if all other considerations were in place. Still, very interesting!!!
