Top 10 Visual Distractions when selling

Visual distractions will kill your property sale and when listing your home you should be showing it in the best possible light.

Do you know where you could lose a buyer’s interest?

Visual distractions are one of the biggest hindrances to a buyer being able to really see your home and it’s features.

These distractions are: 

  1. Life clutter
  2. Family memories including photos, artwork on the fridge, awards
  3. Excessive wall hangings, or having them incorrectly hung.
  4. Extra TV’s and DVD equipment and Gaming devices, DVD’s in excess.
  5. Dark or bright paint colors or designs on the walls, including decals, names on doors, stickers on windows
  6. Excessive plants and Knick knacks
  7. Many pieces of furniture, not from the same sets
  8. Excess toys or sports equipment
  9. Many pieces of lawn furniture and equipment scattered over the yard
  10. Overstuffed garages and front porches

This is actually more than 10 and don’t forget the seasonal decorations that weren’t taken down all year.

Your buyers eyes are already overwhelmed going into many people’s homes and trying to take it all in.

Consider this: It all becomes a blur after a while and they will forget what they saw, but you can stay top of their mind by taking care of all this prior to listing. Then your home is a breath of fresh air for them and they will fall in love with it, simply because THEY CAN SEE IT!!
