Importance of Removing Family Pictures to Sell Your House

Family Portraits are great for memories, not for selling your house.
Family Portraits are great for memories, not for selling your house.

Whether you are an HGTV fan or not, you have likely heard this tip before: remove family pictures before selling your house. This is a good rule of thumb whether you are selling real estate here in Western North Carolina or anywhere in the nation.

This does not mean strip your house of all artwork. You want to stage it properly, and artwork can play a role. Scenery, decorations, etc. can make it perfect. The end goal is to ensure prospective buyers walking through your house admire your home, not the people you know and the places you’ve been. Having them picture themselves in the home, notice its features, and admire the quality is key to their buying process.

Go ahead and box up all the family pictures and get them ready for their next home. If you have lots of holes in walls as a result of taking them down, you’ll want to patch them. If you like, you can always find a handyman on our Gotta Guy list.
