We all know the challenges of keeping the house "Showing Ready" but that can be a little extra challenging during the Summer months while the kiddos are out of school. 
To make this process a little easier it's best as always to keep the house 24/7 as if you're preparing for a showing so it's "ALWAYS READY"! This way last minute showings won't send you into a FRANTIC TIZZY and scurrying all over! 
You can assign each person a little job or task to do and that is their responsibility whenever you get notification of a showing.

the temple team: Buying A New Home? - 05/27/18 12:25 PM

2. Make sure your Credit is in order
Prior to your house hunting adventure, get copies of your credit report. Make sure the facts are correct, and fix any problems you discover.
