Items that remind us of special people, events, milestones and interests are important part of what makes a home a home. Pictures on the fireplace mantle, for example, showcase family and friends that are important to us. You might also have trophies, certificates, greeting cards and other momentoes on display in key places. 

Of course all of those things add warmth and meaning to your home.

However, if you're preparing your home for sale, it's a good idea to pack those memories away- at least until you've sold your property and moved to your new home.

Why? Because those pleasant momentoes that mean so much to you may actually turn off potential buyers. 

You see, when buyers view your property, you want them to be able to clearly picture themselves and their families living there. That's difficult to do if everywhere they look they see reminders that this is your home!

So, to help sell your home quickly, make it look great, but not personalized. Think of the showroom displays you see set up in furniture stores. Those displays are most appealing when they enable you to easily picture yourself, with that furniture, in your home. You probably wouldn't feel that way if it looked like the furniture belonged to someone else.

Of course, buyers will know you currently live in your home. But helping them imagine themselves living there will help you sell your property faster- and possibly for a better price.
