Wanted: More Room for Growing Boys
Large furnishings in a traditional bungalow-style home are holding it back from an easy sale.
Hide CaptionShow CaptionThis living and dining area has some eccentric furniture that tends to scare most potential home buyers.
This home has been on the market for a few months, but prospective homebuyers have been fleeing once they see the huge, eccentric and contemporary furniture in the living and dining room. The only good thing about the furniture is that it distracts from the worn-out flooring. With three boys in the house, the hardwood floors have seen a lot of wear and tear. The real estate expert commented that the room's best feature is hidden. The large wall of windows (not shown) is blocked by a big couch, large plants, dated swags and dirty vertical blinds. Also, the dining room set is too large for the space. This is a medium-size room, and everything in the space is jumbo. A buyer is going to pay for square footage, and it's hard too see any in here.
