Clearly, “grossed out” is not the vibe you’re going for when trying to sell your home. Eliminating the types of things most likely to trigger sensitivities in your potential buyers can make a big difference in how quickly your home sells!
The entryway (or foyer or entrance hall, depending on what part of the country you’re from) is literally the first impression buyers will have of the interior of your home — making this space appealing is the first step in helping buyers establish a particular feeling about your house. As with all first impressions, buyers will form an opinion about your house within a matter of seconds — either positive or negative — that they will try to further support as they view the rest of your home. If that first impression is a good one, they tend to look for attributes throughout the home tour that will support those initial feelings.
