Wallpaper is great for the person who picked it out.  But when you are selling a home you need to remove it.  The wallpaper fits your decor and your lifestyle.  But when selling a home you are trying to appeal to the greatest number of buyers possible.  Sure there may be somebody that loves fruit prints or vegetable prints.  But you will rule out a lot more Michigan home buyers.

That peach and mauve border was in 10 years ago but now.....  Just remember how long it took you to pick out the "right" wallpaper or the "right" border.  It's alright for you but not for the next homeowner.

Take down the wall paper and let them visualize themselves in the home.  Not the old folks home.  Nothing worse than hearing the words "this is just like my grandma's house"  Dead deal, next home.  let's move on to the next home.  They don't want to live in grandpa's home.  They want their own home.

Sure it takes time and money to take down the wallpaper, but it will help sell your Michigan home for more money and in a quicker time.  Michigan homebuyers want a ready to move into home.  Those are the homes that are selling for the most money and the quickest in the 2008 market.


Feel like you are in prison?

So whether you are selling Livonia Real Estate, Farmington Hills real estate or any Metro Detroit home home GET RID OF THE WALLPAPER.

Russ, I showed a $435,000 home in Washington Township to buyer clients last year.  Gorgeous from the outside, in fact the buyers thought it was "it" when pulling up to the home.

Inside the home had every room wallpapered.  EVERY room.

They didn't want to make an offer on the home because of all of the work involved removing it, and the chance that the walls could be damaged afterwards.

BTW, the home expired from the market and never sold.

I had a listing a few years ago that was wallpaper city. Paper, paper chair rail and paper borders is every room, even ceilings. One of the offers my client received stated that all wallpaper had to be removed 3 days prior to settlement as a condition of sale. It finally sold, and the new owner invited everyone at closing to come for a wallpaper stripping party at the house.
