For serious art collectors, a home is not just a place that provides shelter. It’s also a place to showcase an art collection, which may be as prized as the space itself.But what happens when that home goes on the market? Does the art stay or go? In many cases, it depends on the art, brokers and staging professionals say.
An extensive art collection can be a challenge for both brokers and staging professionals who try create a sense of anonymity in a space but don’t want to offend homeowners by suggesting some works be put away. Deciding on whether an art collection should stay depends on whether the collection fits with the property as well as the demographic the seller and broker is trying to reach. There is clearly artwork that would not be appropriate, for example pieces that might be deemed offensive by some. But, if it’s a beautiful collection and it fits the architecture of the home, and it fits the demographics of the person who is buying, then it’s a must.
