I am a professional home Stager. That means when homeowners decide to sell their houses, I help them prepare their houses to appeal to the broadest range of prospective buyers as possible. Here is a standard paragraph I include in my “boiler plate” tips I give to my clients:
“Staging means depersonalizing and neutralizing a property to inspire potential buyers to mentally move in…a step toward physically moving in. Therefore, objects relating to personal hygiene, politics, religion, medical conditions, collections, family photos and the like are put away.”
It occurs to me that advising people to remove religious items, before house hunters tour their homes, is an example of bending to the ways of the world, rather than the ways of God … not that I specifically cite Christianity in my standard paragraph.
Not sure how I feel about this, now. Suggestions? Thoughts?
