I have seen some strange things showing houses. No, the picture to the left is definitely NOT the most strange!
Some things I have seen include:
- Rows and rows of mason jars with what appeared to be witches brews, like “eye of newt” type things
- A king size bed that glowed and had lots of special lighting
- The world’s biggest collection of PEZ dispensers
Those are a little more extreme. If you have that stuff, you know it is unusual, unique, special.
For today, instead of focusing on the special or odd things, let’s focus on what is normal to you, and perhaps many others, but not to everyone. Let’s talk about deer heads.
We are in the South. Loads of people hunt here, and for many it is a way of life. There are also loads of people here who don’t hunt, or for who a stuffed deer head makes them feel uncomfortable. I urge you to consider taking them down. Why take the chance of distracting or disturbing a potential buyer just so you don’t have to move your deer head?
Also, I rarely see deer head used “properly” in decorating a home. If you don’t have a hunting lodge style home, your deer heads probably look a little out of place. In the instance of the picture above, there were about 6 deer head in this living room, some almost touching nose to nose. It was excessive.
So, don’t take offense, just get your house sold by making the pool of buyers that might like it a little bigger by taking those deer heads down. Note: this house also had pictures of naked ladies holding beer bottles in the basement, probably should take those down too guys.
