Believe it or not, many people don’t understand that the way we live in our homes is far different from how it should be presented at sale time. For example, we have two dog crates under our dining room table. It’s very convenient for us, and the space is not used frequently. However, if we were to put our house on the market, those crates would have to go. The dining room would need to be presented as such, not as a kennel!

In today’s real estate market, it’s more important than ever to be sure sure your house looks great, functions well, and appeals to the broadest possible pool of buyers. In no particular order, here are some things I’ve seen in houses that are for sale, with recommendations. These things may have made the sellers’ lives easier, but made it more difficult to sell their houses!

If you are preparing your house for the market, be aware of how each space is supposed to function. Allow the personality and features of the house to come forward, not your own. Present it in as clean and updated a condition as possible.
