Furnishings Can Hide the Positive Attributes of a Property

Furnishings Can Hide the Positive Attributes of A PropertyA couple of days ago I was out previewing a couple of properties here in Brevard County Florida for an out of town buyer. I looked at two different units within the same well maintained condo complex.  It is a beautiful place with a heated pool and tennis courts.

The units were essentially the same square footage, located in different parts of the building.  One of the units was painted an off white, with light colored tasteful furnishings. It showed light, bright and cheery.

The other unit was also painted an off white color.  But, it had a deep, dark, much older carpeting.  The entire unit was decorated in very dark antiques. 

I love antique furnishings. Years ago my husband and I used to sell antiques and today we have some antiques that we still have pieces that we have accumulated over time.

The second unit somewhat took me aback, though, with it’s dark, primitive furnishings and it’s dreary, depressing interior, even though I am an antique lover.  Even as a Realtor, I had a difficult time looking past the furnishings to be able to envision the unit without them.

As, I left this attractive condo complex, it was so interesting how incredibly different these 2 units that were essentially the same square footage and the same floor plan looked and “felt”.  Furnishings can “hide” the positive attributes of a property for sale.
