Sell your home fast in Winchester, VA by putting yourself in the buyer’s shoes
I showed a house a few years ago that left the buyers and me thinking that the owners were probably serial killers butchering people in the basement. That sounds a bit extreme, but that was the vibe the house gave as soon as we walked in. It was dark with very little lighting available. The wooden furniture was all painted black. The windows were darkened by room darkening shades. It had all of the creepy feelings of a scary movie. We didn’t even go to the second floor. If you were the buyer, would you go to your second floor? Sell your home fast in Winchester, VA by putting yourself in the buyer’s shoes.
