I've seen quite a number of vanilla homes lately, you may know what I am talking about. White walls, white molding, beige carpet, beige countertops, beige tile. Some of these homes are priced pretty high, but they leave so little impression on a buyer that they are easily forgotten.
While I agree that you should not personalize your home so much that it won't appeal to most buyers I think it's equally important to give your home some personality. Your goal is to create an inviting, warm homey space that anyone can imagine themselves living in and yet so many (especially new) homes forget to add anything to make their property stand out among the others.
When preparing you home to sell, try to add a few things that catch a buyers attention. It could be new, interesting door pulls in the kitchen or perhaps a new stylish vanity sink in the powder room, maybe upgrade the builder's original railing in the home, or a mass of colorful flowers by the front door. I've had buyers purchase homes in part because of stained glass panels in the front door, crystal door knobs, above average countertops, vessel sinks and cheerful (and tastefully) painted rooms.
Vanilla doesn't sell, make your home memorable.
