I'm having some yardwork & pruning done on my property. I was standing outside talking with the landscape company and realized how messy my yard is with dead branches everywhere. Our grass is brown & looking very sad. I am really looking forward to having new soil added to the garden beds so I can add some color. Flowers have a way of beautifying any space. If I were selling I think people might drive up and keep on driving! Not really but I'm critical because I never take my Realtor hat off! First Impressions are Everything when selling.....but I'm not so I guess I'm ok while we're trying to get the yard back in shape!
My poor family, when we sold our last two homes I was like a drill sargeant! Yes, bootcamp! Before we left the house for each showing we would run the vacuum so there were nice lines in the carpet. Obsessive, I know. Hey, I was doing my family a favor, I didn't want them to have to endure the craziness longer than they had to!! Afterall, I knew how important the first impression is! It's fun seeing my client's reaction when we walk in the front door of a home that may belong to them soon!
