Recently, my daughter in law was reminiscing about working as a waitress during college. She worked at a big Chinese restaurant.
Some of the seating faced out to view the mall entrance. Diners could watch the comings and goings of shoppers while they ate. Equally, mall customers could oogle the diners.
"The Manager always told us not to seat anybody in front of the window unless they were attractive," she stated. I had an immediate indignant, "OMG, are you kidding!!!" reaction.
Later, I reacted to my reaction. I am in an image business. I know people are attracted to pretty. (It seems less offensive when it is a house verses a person, I rationalized.) My job is to make houses look attractive to get them sold.
The restaurant manager wanted the 'pretty people' in front to draw in potential customers.
Like the restaurant manager, I know that a house for sale must show its 'pretty' to lure in potential buyers.
You wonder why a post about home staging has pictures of George, Jennifer and Kate? You will be seeing lots of houses on "Linda Beam - An Attraction to Staging". You deserve to see, what I think we all can agree on, are a few pretty people.
