A side­board cov­ered in fam­ily pho­tos makes it harder for peo­ple to imag­ine them­selves liv­ing there. It’s best to try and elim­i­nate “you” from the space as much as pos­si­ble. It goes back to the point of sell­ing a life­style again: the de­per­son­al­i­sa­tion check­list in­cludes pho­tos, cloth­ing, med­i­cal sup­plies and per­sonal items in bath­rooms. Buy­ers can be nosy and they’ll look in­side wardrobes, draw­ers and cup­boards, so make sure these ar­eas look as gen­eral and well or­gan­ised as pos­si­ble. How­ever, some items, such as the kids’ bas­ket­ball hoop or the large golf club bag in the cup­board un­der the stairs, can ac­tu­ally be use­ful in al­low­ing view­ers to see the “life­style ben­e­fits” of your home.

It’s more about re­mov­ing the in­ti­mate items, rather than elim­i­nat­ing any signs of life.
