What is the right amount for an agent to do?

We have a new listing at Bay Vista Realty. It is not a huge house or by any means a high dollar listing, but it sits on such a great lot and canal leading to two lakes that I have taken a real liking to it.

The owners are out of town, and well, the place needs some maintenance and curb apeal.  I got my painter over to the house to give an estimate and he, as always, came in at a very good price.  Considering the quality of work, (He used to paint very high end cars) he does, I am very lucky that I have such good painter.


Next my lawn crew came over, they are hitting the highs and lows of the yard and doing some major cleanup for me.

 

My roofer is heading over and giving the roof a cleaning and bleaching, and while there, bleaching the white vinyl fence for me.

 

So my question is this....what is too much and when are you spoiling the clients.  I am dedicating tons of time to each listing these days to get them ready, and then again to get them through the banks if they are a short sale....so am I just crazy.....??????  Or dedicated to my business and my clients.

 

I await your opinion.

Gary, assuming you are paying from your own expense account (aka wallet) for these improvements/repairs I would say you are going well above and beyond. 

I have mowed a few of our client's lawns and hauled away trash while Pam has cleaned the inside but I can't say I have had a home painted.
