When I meet a Seller who doesn't want to invest any more money into their home, I always advise them that all those little things can equal one big Red Flag for Buyers. Buyers will choose the house in their price range that is move-in ready over one that needs work. Here are some things not to ig...
I've written before about the importance of your home 'speaking' to the buyer as they view it. Today let's talk about the male buyers out there. I was just consulting on a home with a very feminine feel to it. Every room was beautifully accessorized with throw pillows, flowers, art etc. When we g...
Will your home reach out and touch the Buyer? So much of choosing a home is visual. It's that emotional response to what you see that gives you that feeling of 'home'. Preparing your home for sale means you walk a fine line between looking like a show home and looking like a home where someone is...
What are you going to do about Dad's house? He can't live alone in it anymore. It's not easy when this happens. Dad will be living with you or in a facility. Will you move into his house or will he move in to yours? Lots of changes for everyone. Dad probably hasn't updated his home for years and ...

This is a...
Selling your home can be very stressful. Keeping your home show ready disrupts your daily routines.This is why I always encourage my clients to create a Last Minute List and put it in their Last Minute Box. If you have a cat or a dog with a big swishing tail or a small child that loves to climb a...
Whenever I work with a client that has 'the Vision', I get the same reaction. They assume that because they can envision how a house will be for them that all the buyers have the same ability. They expect Buyers to be able to size a room, see past their possessions and tell where they will sit th...
Looking back on eleven years of consults, I see the same misconceptions about selling a home keep popping up again and again. By sticking to these theories you can make it harder to sell. 1. No art on the walls. Often when the Seller paints to help the sale of their house, they feel they should n...
It's not too often that I meet a Realtor who has never used a Stager these days. In my area, Staging has become the norm when selling a home. I was referred to this Realtor by colleague. Thank you! The agent wanted to know how it worked. I began by telling them it was my job to switch the seller ...
