Have you ever told your clients that they need to remove all their personal pictures in a home bacause their home would not sell with those pictures hanging? This is really not true. You need to tell your clients to remove some but not all. They want the buyer to look at your home and not the personal and hanging pictures. It is very imprtant for a house not too look too sterile. It still wants to be warm and inviting- just not overwhelmed with personal photos or hanging pictures on every wall or space on the wall.
