Help me tart up house for sale (pics included)

We have moved into our house after a lot of renovation work. Thought we’d get the estate agents in for estimations. Have been given a figure we literally can’t turn down.

All our art work is still in the storage unit. Is it worth putting up? I thought potential buyers may prefer hole-free walls. But DH thinks the house is not homely right now (chucked a lot away when we moved back in).

Any advice on what to do to appeal to buyers?

I’ll start with bedroom. Thanks a lot.

How you style or live in your house wouldn't effect my decision in buying. Leave as is OP

Sorry to hear that OP and wish you the best.

Imo your house is clean and new you don't need to do a thing to it. Buyers don't care about the colour of your furniture.

Recently sold a house. Estate agent advised that a 'blank canvas' was best.

Painted all plain walls white. No pictures up.

Now, I admit that it's not a dear house - 2 bed, well below stamp duty level and in central belt of Scotland - but I got 16k more than estate agent originally expected. (Good home report helped.)

Signed contract Monday. On site Tuesdays. Viewings Thursday. One offer made Thursday. Better offer made Friday morning.

For a house that needs selling it's nice abd plain and clean looking so just leave it

Can you take the tvs off the wall and fill in the gaps?

The advice I was given when I was selling was -"what are you selling?" go from there. you are selling a lifestyle, not just a house. So - country cottage - lots of chintz, bread in oven ... trendy urban flat - minimalism, arty prints etc. you get the message, I'm sure. Decide what you're actually selling, and emphasise that.
