I was reading an article this morning on “What not to do when your home is on the market” and one word I read made me wonder if its use is too harsh.
The word – neutralizing.
The intent of staging a home to sell is to remove many of the the elements that make a house a home in order to allow buyer prospects to focus on the property characteristics and not the many family pictures, knickknacks and tchotchkes (not familiar with the word, here is the definition). Removing the mauve paint, the floral wallpaper, the 60s shag carpet is what it is all about as well.
Maybe neutralize is not really such a harsh word, after all.
And timing is everything as well. Prepare before listing your house!
