An empty home just has no appeal whats so ever. Ask any Home Stylist, they will all agree.
If your home is going on the market, and it's empty, then the prospective buyer hasn't got anything to look at, but its faults. And they will scrutinize every little detail, or lack of. A lot of buyers can not visualise an empty room. But if you furnish an empty home then they have beautiful furniture to look at. And this aids in the way of a distraction in some cases. As you may have carpet that need to be updated, but you're short of cash.They will also get more of an idea what the rooms are designed for.
As you can see furniture in a room has more appeal to a prospective buyer.
What a difference a bit of furniture can make, for a great impression.
