A: Leaving a home half-furnished with the items you did not want for your new home is never a good strategy. The home ends up looking sad and buyers may assume that there is a distress situation and bring low offers, hoping to take advantage of it. If the furniture is up-to-date and in good condition, we can supplement it with our furnishings to make the home look complete. If the furniture is dated or worn, you are better off starting over. Buyers cannot help making judgments about your home based on the way they see it furnished. You want them to see it as a home that deserves beautiful furniture, not worn cast-offs.
