I hear this question all the time from homeowner's during the Property Prep process. And my answer is always the same, YES! Yes if you want to save yourself money & time, and I don't know anyone who doesn't need more money & time! I understand that the previous owners put it up and you have grown accustom to it, or YOU loved it so decided to put it up 10 years ago and it was expensive. Consider this when wavering on wallpaper removal:
We see it over & over, home seller's making poor choices when selling their home and wall color is no exception. "Realtor Beige" or Vanilla is not a color that will create an emotionally appealing & memorable home when sellers are touring your place. The more thought you put into choosing the right color combinations in paint color, surfaces and materials, the more return on investment you will net. A quick sale will not only save you time and hassle (placing baby, kids, dogs, cats, toys into the car and driving around for an hour) with less showings, but also netting more money at the closing table! Finding a place to call home is what buyers are searching for, show them your house is the next place for them to call home!
