By Christine Watson From her blog: Hide Your Personals! Protecting your privacy when selling your home! Putting your luxury home on the market poses two very personal concerns: 1. Invasion of privacy: that your personal life will be on show; 2. Theft: your personal effects are prey to any “prospective” buyers De-clutter your property before placing it on the market: this is my first piece of advice for those vendors concerned with their privacy being publicised to the world. To some it means removing everything from bench tops, cupboards and shelves and to others it means keeping the home clean, neat and tidy. But how do you protect your privacy and hide your personal items? Your home generally depicts your personal life, showing your taste in furnishings, colours, art, antiques and family photographs. Is opening your home to the public an invasion of your privacy? Absolutely!
