The Clutter Doesn't Come With The House
In a perfect world, every home for sale would be staged and presented like a builder's model. But no one lives in a builder's model, just visitors that never sleep in the bed, the kitchen is only used for bottled water and the occasional wine & cheese social. Not even close to the same as day to day living.
Regular home Sellers? They make dirty laundry, have kids that spit toothpaste gobs in the sink and dogs that leave "landmines" in the backyard. What may have started off as a perfectly presented home on Day 1 on the market may quickly devolve into the routine of "I live here and I can't live like THAT".
Unless a home sells in the first few days, the added strain of trying to keep a home show ready may become impossible for some. And depending on the circumstances, the home may start filling up with packed boxes in preparation for the upcoming move. The once spacious garage or covered porch start to fill up and depending on the seller's budget, renting a storage unit may not be feasible.
So it's critical for buyers to be able to look past the less than perfect conditions and see what the home can be for them! Letting a little clutter throw you off of a home that might have been the perfect fit for you may mean weeks or months more searching for the "perfect" home. The stuff doesn't stay with the home. so doing your best to focus on what WILL stay can improve your odds of finding the right home. And for the buyers that can do that, there just might be opportunity for you since other buyers who can't see past less than perfect will have moved on to the next home on their shopping list.
