It's a trap - the fake house

In the UK, they've got a clever police scheme going where they set up fake houses to catch burglars.  See here.  My question is, how neat do they make these apartments?  Surely without residents, the uncanny tidiness would be a give-away.  Or do they decorate the house and then have someone do a last walk-through and muss it up just enough to look real?  That could possibly be the perfect job for my natural skill-set.  There's a bonus in the comments section where someone suggests that if they set the house up like a fully-fledged IKEA store, the burglar would be forced to wander around forever and never get out anyway....
