When getting your home ready to sell, there is so much to be done. The last thing you want to do is to spend time removing wallpaper.
But the very same reason you do not want to do it is the same reason you should! Most buyers dread the thought of having to remove wallpaper among so many other moving related tasks. Many buyers are relocating, so for them, its not just about the house. There are jobs, schools, medical, vehicles and so many more considerations and items that will require their time and attention.
Did you know that when viewing homes online, a home with outdated wallpaper may not ever make it the the list of homes to see in person? Buyers may never have an opportunity to see what a beautiful and well maintained home you have in person.
The most common objection from sellers I hear is that "its not a big deal", "the buyer can do it", and we'll "offer a credit". For the buyer that decides not to tour your home due to the wallpaper, there will be no credit, because there will be no offer!
