Putting your property 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 for sale: this is my first tip 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 personals?

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!

The experience of Marquette Turner Luxury Homes shows that people buy the home that “ticks most of the boxes”.  When selling your home, you should take the distractions away so the buyer can concentrate solely on looking at your home.

Furthermore, we are not great advocates of open for inspections in a troubled market and it is important to appreciate that household contents insurance does not cover the loss of personal effects during a viewing of a property.  Remove the opportunity for theft and protect yourself as if you were a celebrity like Nicole Kidman, Tom Cruise and Hugh Jackman.

Selling your home can be stressful enough without the concern that someone is taking an interest in your personal life and possessions.

Marquette Turner Luxury Homes we will not allow anyone to view your home without showing their photo identification.  If someone objects they are not respecting your home and are not serious about buying the property. Only a Luxury agency can truly protect your privacy.
