The case of the GREEN toilet

Not long ago I was doing a Home staging consultation with a lovely couple in a nice upscale neighborhood. The house was built in the late 1980's. The house was large and the kids are now grown so the owners were looking to downsize to a condo.

The conversation went like this:

Me: One of the changes that will benefit you when selling your house is to change out the forest green toilet and sink in this bath.

Homeowner: We just did that last week! The old toilet tank top was cracked so we replaced the whole toliet. We had to special order this color to match the sink.

Me: Hummm, Ohhh. (stumble for words). Usually when you have to special order a color that means it is not a common color people are buying now. My recommendation would have been to replace the toilet and sink with white.

This is not the actual toilet or bathroom. I wanted to protect their identity. I really do (usually) love pro-active clients. When staging your home, you want colors and fixtures that are on-trend and in demand.
