In a recent meeting with some potential sellers, I was asked if they should keep the pink window treatments, in the pink room. Not just any pink, but a pepto-bismol pink. The color actually wasn't terrible, but it and the window treatments made the room look dated.
So, I offered to the sellers that if it were me, I would take down the window treatments and repaint the room in a neutral color. I then waited for the inevitable backlash from the sellers as to their love of the color and the fact that the treatments were from a long gone great grand mother. But nope, no backlash at all. They agreed readily. Just wanted confirmation from me.
I had a managing broker once that told me that if I needed to ask a question about how to do something, I probably already knew the answer. The confirmation is what I was looking for. I think she was right.
