I found some tips to maintaining a good attitude which originally appeared in a book by Dave Anderson called "How to deal with Difficult Customers." I'll note a few of them here, because I think many times success (or failure) can be predicated on how well you're able to maintain a positive, upbeat approach.

If you're thinking about selling your home, follow these great tips for making the inside of your home shine! Uncluttering the House This is the hardest thing for most people to do because they are emotionally attached to everything in the house. After years of living in the same home, clutter collects in such a way that may not be evident to the homeowner. However, it does affect the way buyers see the home, even if you do not realize it. Clutter collects on shelves, counter tops, drawers, closets, garages, attics, and basements. You want as much open clear space as possible, so (0 comments)
