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.
