The cold weather is affecting our brains! Staging in Burlington

By

This January's deep cold is definitely affecting us all. We are cocooning in our homes. 

I'll get a call about doing a consult and then the client decides to wait a while. After all there is no rush to get on the market. It's so cold.

Personally I think it slows the thinking process LOL. Must be the ice crystals in our brains. 

A couple thinking of downsizing went out to look at a home by the water. They are retired, have just finished fixing up their home for sale and are starting to look. 

What do they go and see >>>> a multi-leveled house that needs a lot of work! Oh yes, it's not smaller either. The location attracted them but the problems with the house made them come to their senses ;).

Sellers should be using this time to update their homes for sale. 

Get ready now. Spring will come .... eventually ;).

It certainly is christopher Baldesarra ! Sellers just want to wait for the warmer weather. They should be prepping their home now so that there is no panicked rush to market this Spring..

Spring will be here before we know it, so they better get prepared.

I can only imagine what it is like in the winter up there.  I would love it, but it probably does put a damper on some things.

That's right Roger D. Mucci . Why rush when you don't have to?

Well, I don't know...I once woke my husband up when we were spending the night at the Ice Hotel in Quebec and complained I was too hot in the sleeping bag.

I'm not going outside unless I HAVE to.  LOL.  I have a consult scheduled for Saturday morning and it won't disappoint me at all if they call and cancel.
