how to sell a house: It's Time!!!! Let's do this! - 03/25/18 11:36 AM
You threw out all the old toaster cozies.
You painted over the purple Ravens Nation walls in the man-cave.
You tossed everything you haven't used for the past three years that was stored in the garage, and now you have a place to hide your kid's crappy car.
You fixed the wood rot at the bottom of the front door and swept away the cobwebs. You repainted the front door.
You finally removed the plastic covers from the lamp shades in that room nobody ever uses.
You forced your kids to sell all their junk on ebay.
You cleaned your house within an inch of it's life … (1 comments)

how to sell a house: What to do when you get a last minute showing!!! - 12/08/17 12:11 PM
You just got a call that an agent wants to show your house in 20 minutes.  The kids are off school today and you have been slacking on the housework.  You are in no way, shape, or form ready to have someone see your house in its current state.  And you can hear Susan Nealey's voice in your head screaming "NEVER REFUSE A SHOWING!!!!"
Soooooo....this is what you do!
Every kid runs up to his/her own room.  Pulls the bedding up and fluffs the pillows.  Buyers actually like to see that the  kids tried to keep their rooms looking nice even if it's … (5 comments)

how to sell a house: Scratch 'n Sniff Buttons for Listings! - 12/06/17 02:20 AM
If the internet Gods came to me and asked me to add one feature to the internet house search to make it great, I would say "Add a scratch 'n sniff button!"
Yes, I would.  It would add so much.  Then you wouldn't even have to leave your couch to smell all that dog slobber on the carpet.  
And, oh, my heavens, isn't the addition of that full litter box something I would love in my guest bath.
And get a load of that chain smoker who promises not to smoke in the house (until the wife goes to the store).  After all, … (5 comments)

how to sell a house: Do you really want to sell your house?? Or are you faking it. - 06/15/15 04:54 AM
Do you really want to sell your house?  
Or are you pretending to sell your house.  
Is it too much to keep it clean for showings?  I know you would much prefer to sleep in and let the house sell itself.  You don't feel like getting up before 10 am so you just figure "let those stupid agents bring their buyers in when I WANT  THEM TO COME! After all, I am the one with the house to sell, they are the ones with people who want to buy.  I have something they want.  I have the upper hand, right?"
Wrong. Wrong. … (7 comments)

how to sell a house: Do you want a "scratch 'n sniff" feature for that house?? - 05/20/15 07:55 PM

how to sell a house: It's 8 am. Do you know where YOUR agent is?? - 02/25/15 04:02 AM
I'll tell ya where she is!  She's standing out in front of your house waiting for you to answer the darn door!
Come on!  Let's get this show on the road!  We have an offer that is begging for an answer!  We need to respond before they decide to tell you to shove that contract where the sun don't shine and go after something else with an owner who actually does want to sell!  We need to show these people some love!
The offer was a good one.  You just cannot see it yet.  You are blinded by dollar signs and wondering if you … (7 comments)

how to sell a house: All the Bells and Whistles! - 01/29/15 09:58 PM
When you call me about listing your house.  I will ask if you are interviewing other agents for the job, too.  If you say yes, then I ask if I can go last.
Really?  Why?  What if you fall in love with the first agent you meet and cancel all the other appointments?
Well, that is a chance I am willing to take.  You see, if you are that fickle, then maybe we are not a good fit.
If I do make it to your house, I will bring comparable sales to show what it might appraise for.  I will also bring the listings … (15 comments)

how to sell a house: What do Lottery Tickets & Home Showings have in Common? - 01/29/15 06:44 PM
I bought a lottery ticket once.  Thank God it was only once.  Actually, I went out on a limb and bought 20 lottery tickets.  One dollar each.  All the same number.  I was so positive that I had the winning number that I was certain I was going to hit it big time!! 
I stupidly made the mistake of buying those tickets early in the morning as soon as the store opened.  I thought if I bought those numbers, nobody else could.  Then I proceeded to give my day away.
I could think of nothing except what I would do with … (19 comments)

how to sell a house: They Saw You!! Duck! - 01/29/15 09:05 AM
Ok!  You got the call that the buyer and her agent wanted to see your house in 20 minutes (if you have been reading my blogs, you will know what I mean!).  
You broke your neck to get out of the house with the kids.  Now, you are all crammed in the mini-van, with the clothes you didn't have time to put away, 3 half-dressed pissed off  kids and the slobbering dog who is breathing down your neck.
Stressed yet?  
You are doing your best to try to calm down and shut the kids up.  Everyone wants to go … (16 comments)
