It is interesting to me that some people feel that "staging" a house is best. Perhaps its because they make extra income from the staging services they provide. I have actually sold more houses vacant than with furniture. Some of the responses I have received from potential buyers is that the personal tastes in furniture, even when a house has minimal furniture, gets "in the way" of the buyer being able to visualize their own furniture in the new house. If you have very nice furniture, and the home is not necessarily "high end", I have had responses where people are hesitant to purchase the house because their furniture is not as "nice" and "wouldn't fit the decor" . Or worse, the nice furniture adds to the opinion that the house is "overpriced". When a house is void of furniture, but is clean, painted and has that "ready to move into" look with little to no work associated, the house is easier to sell in my opinion. Your REALTOR who has been working with you and knows the house will be able to be honest and tell you that it would be best to clear out everything or leave the nicest furniture behind.
