This is what you should not do when you are trying to sell your home.
My favorite color is purple, but I would have a very hard time living in this house.
What should you do to have it appeal to more people.
Change the colors so that more people will like them. Wall color and carpet to a more neutral one. More people can see themselves in the home that way without a lot of work being done. In this house all that they are seeing is dollar signs on how much it will be to do all the painting and the flooring. If they give an offer it will be a lot lower than the asking price so that they can make the changes.
It is better to do the work before you put it on the market. It will sell faster and with a higher sales price if you do the work first. Most people can not see past the things that are this bold to be able to see themselves in the home. You have to help them to see themselves in that home so that they will want to live in that place. So you have to take your personality out of the home and make it a place that a lot of people will just love. That is the best way to sell a home.
