Plenty of people love wallpaper. If they didn’t, stores in Beverly Hills wouldn’t sell it. So – why do agents warn that Beverly Hills Houses won’t sell if you have wallpapered walls?
Probably because wallpaper is a touch of individuality. Each person has their own idea of what’s beautiful and what’s ugly. The wallpaper in your home reflects your taste – and the chance that your taste and a buyer’s taste are alike is at best slim.
Do Beverly Hills Houses Still Have Wallpaper?
If you can, the best thing to do is to remove that wallpaper and paint the walls in one of the seasons’ most popular neutrals. If you can’t, at least get a bid from a reputable painting contractor. Find out what it will cost to remove or replace that wallpaper. Then let your agent have that information to pass along to potential buyers.
If you’re buying and you see wallpaper that you don’t like, don’t let that detail keep you away from Beverly Hills houses that otherwise meets all your requirements. Remember that wallpaper, like paint, is temporary. You CAN change it.
Look instead at the location, the floor plan, the room sizes, and the way you and yours will use the home. Envision it with the paper or paint of your choice – and with your own belongings on the walls and in the rooms.
