Should A Seller Remove Religious Items From Their House While Selling?

Should I remove my religious items from the
house while selling it? Hmmmmmm. I’m Tommy Rosati, the 757 home guy. If you’re interested in real estate or the
757 area code, you’ve come to the right place. OK! Those who know me know I’m rarely one to be
shy about my opinions. But the question of whether or not a seller
should remove religious items from their house to help sell it, is a rare exception to this
rule. I must admit; every time I’m asked this question,
I kinda cringe. I had a deeply religious upbringing. Because of this, I do not feel very comfortable
instructing sellers in this area. After all, I don’t wanna be the one responsible
for preventing someone from eventually entering the pearly gates. (Skit) Just like with all other personal affects,
you don’t have to remove all of your religious items from the house. You just need to make sure there aren’t so
many, that they may be a distraction for a potential buyer. Personally, I believe the occasional Crucifix
here & a periodic Menorah there isn’t that big of a deal. However, I think religious items CAN become
a distraction to a potential home buyer when an entire room is made to look like a shrine,
or temple. So in the end, it’s just like all other personal
effects; decluttering is key. A seller doesn’t have to eliminate all of
their personal identify from their house. I mean after all, a seller still has to live
in the house until it sells, but sellers should also try to neutralize the house as much as
possible so a potential buyer can more easily picture themselves living there. I wanna thank you all for watching. If you have any questions about other things
