Pack up your personal photographs and heirlooms. Buyers find it hard to see past personal belongings, and you don't want them to be distracted. You want buyers to imagine their own photos on the walls, and they can't do that if yours are there! You don't want to make any buyer ask, "I wonder what kind of people live here?" You want buyers to say, "I can see myself living here."
