But my neighbor said . . .
"Don't worry about cleaning up. If they can't imagine what the house looks like without your stuff out, that's their problem."
"Open Houses are a waste of time."
"You don't have to leave for showings. It's helpful if you're there to answer any questions."
"Just put the dogs in the garage. Buyers don't need to see in there, all garages look the same."
"You don't need to paint the interior. If they don't like lime green walls in the living room and canary yellow in the dining room, they can change it once they buy it."
I'm sorry, but isn't your goal to sell your Wrightsville Beach NC home, not just list it? I can't help what anyone else has told you, here in the real world of real estate in Wrightsville Beach NC that's just bad advice.
"Clean up. How seriously do you think a Buyer is going to consider a home that's dirty and messy?"
"I've sold a fair number of homes at Open Houses. The key is to schedule and advertise properly."
"LEAVE! Please, if you do nothing else, LEAVE for showings. Give Buyers and their Agents room and time to view the house and talk. They won't feel comfortable discussing concerns or their interest if you are there."
"Take the dogs out or crate them. Every area of the home needs to be accessible during showings."
"Let me give you some suggestions on colors and where to get paint at a good price."
