Was it worth 5 hours of labor and a $5 trip to the dump to help my sellers make an extra $2000+ and hopefully get a quicker sale? You bet it was! Are my sellers happy? Here is what they said when I emailed the "after" photo:
"Wow! That is a much better look! You're wonderful! Thank you, Marcy"
"good job what a difference susan good luck this weekend yeah!!!! Randy"
The BEFORE video of my little project today
This is why I do what I do. I love to work, I love to please my sellers and be a blessing to them, I love to guide buyers into a solid, well-built home and away from those that are money pits, I just plain love the real estate industry.
My husband, after he saw my sore muscles and bloody finger asked, was it worth 5 hours of labor and a $5 trip to the dump? I had to say the same to him, yes. Thanks to his help for an hour and the tools he had for me to use, I was able to get the job completed in time for an open house.
The AFTER video of my little project today
Some say I can't leave well enough alone, I guess that is true. When I see something that needs to be done, I do it. It doesn't matter if it is my house or a listing. To help someone else gives me great joy. So whether it is playing electrician and light fixtures out, painting wood-paneling, removing wall paper, cleaning windows, re-grouting tile, I will do it with joy in heart and a song on my lips.
So maybe you should try it, if you don't already. It feels good to help others and put their needs before your own. In the real estate industry we have plenty of opportunities to serve others, so give it try!
SO just to reiterate - Was it worth 5 hours of labor and a $5 trip to the city?
