3 Things to NEVER Leave Out at an Open House or Showing
Tuck these far, far away and you should be good!
1. Space Heaters, Fans, and More
Some of these items give a buyer the wrong idea about the house right away. A space heater in your sunroom? The room gets chilly in the winter, a buyer will think. Multiple fans in the bedrooms? Oh, the house must be too hot! A book beside your bed on how to cope with nosey neighbors? No... this is a big no.
2. Your "I'm With Her" of your "Make America Great Again" Hat
Buyers zone in on political endorsements and just like you don't post your political views on social media sites because of backlash in this savaged political climate we live in, you don't want to alienate a buyer. Hide these well.
3. Full or Empty Ashtrays Outside
Cigarettes are a huge turnoff to buyers. Even an empty ashtray suggests you may have smoked inside at one time or snuck one on a cold day. Cigarette smoke can cause lasting damage to the inside of a home and one many buyers don't want to deal with.
Once you have sold your home, feel free to do as you please but when you are on the market, your home is a commodity. Think of it that way.
