Asking sellers what it was that made them fall in love with their home can definitely help describe the home better.

I'm too much of a nuts and bolts guy committed to functionality and practicality of the location.  I should try the touchy feely theme next time.  Thanks for the suggestion.

I can definitely see where that would evoke emotion, and who better to express and convey that in a way that connects with your prospective buyer?

The seller lives here, maybe built the place and knows best all the fine features and conveniences. In your 1.5 to 2 hours touring and imaging, measuring, taking good real estate notes, you can not possible know the place as well as the life long owner. Use their flower garden images, tap into their expertise of what do you like about this place Sellers? The next buyer will be attracted to the same features.
