Quite often when I’m showing houses I come across a home that literally feels like a cave. All of the blinds are closed and no sunlight at all is penetrating. What are these sellers thinking? While keeping the sun out may be good for your power bill it is bad for showings. If buyers feel depressed the moment they enter your dark and gloomy home the last thing they’re thinking about is paying good money to live in such an environment.
Open your blinds and let the sun shine flood the room. Buyers want to see bright and happy rooms and this can only be achieved if they can actually see the room. Don’t make them search for light switches in the middle of the day just to see your home.
