    1. It’s an incredible location though no? One block off Union…walking distance of Chestnut. It’s certainly high $ for being in the flats, but man you couldn’t ask for a better Cow Hollow location.

  1. An open request to agents and stagers: can you please stop including the hides of dead animals (real or faux) like the one above when you market homes?

    I can’t imagine that this practice makes a difference in terms of offers or sales, and it’s definitely going to put off some buyers. The goal of a staging is to make prospective buyers think, “I can see myself living here.” A dead animal’s skin and hair on the floor? That has the opposite effect. So it’d be a win-win to stop.

    1. Great house! Supply and demand seems to be the name of this game. Oh and regarding the fur, if people didn’t want it then stagers would not use it- that is the deal. Welcome to the rest of the world that encapsulates your world…

      1. Quite right. I wasn’t trying to speak for everyone. My views are no doubt in the minority, but I still think that, in the aggregate, this staging choice does more harm than good among prospective buyers. Anyway, back to work. Interesting discussion. Have a nice day, everyone.

  2. I like dead animal rugs. If a decorator/stager tried to please ANY and ALL potential buyers, there would be an empty interior.

    1. I agree with you in principle (“you can’t please everyone all the time”) but disagree that an animal hide is comparable to, say, a mission-style coffee table versus a glass one.

      1. As long as the wood from the mission-style coffee table came from sustainable forests and the glass one was 100% post-consumer recycled.

  3. I like dead animal rugs too… I have no problem eating the meat underneath the skin/fur, so why not utilize the skin/fur as a decorative piece? I’m pretty sure that’s more a more sustainable process than buying a rug that requires (among many additional steps): Cotton farming, textile factories (that include dyes, chemicals, etc.), and all the middlemen that are required to get from cotton seed/plant to a nice shag rug.

    1. I wasn’t commenting on your right to own such a rug. However, since the goal is to get prospective buyers to feel at home in a space, and since many people will feel put off by the sight of a dead animal’s skin and hair on the floor, it seems in everyone’s interest to not stage with animal hides.

  4. And feel free to throw paint on my mink coat… just realize that means more animals will need to be harvested so I can buy a replacement fur coat.

  5. Visitors often compliment me on my leather dining room and side chairs, cowhide and shearling accent pillows and cowhide rugs. Ironically, I NEVER serve red meat to my dinner guests.

  6. Can’t argue with the animal rugs at 400K over asking. Unless someone noted they would’ve paid 1 mil over asking if it wasn’t for the rug.

  7. Imagine dusting every one of those wood slats in the living room.
    Does that wall and ceiling treatment make the room look smaller?

  8. Imagine dusting every one of those wood slats in the living room when you realized that the person you hired to do it didn’t do it or did a poor job.
