Sellers..keep up the good work! Don't let your guard down, now, because today could be the day that "The Buyer" comes to see your home. All your hard work..keeping up with the "Curb-Appeal", making the interior of your home spotless..none of it is a waste of time. With so many homes to pick from, if you can make yours memorable in the eyes (AND NOSES) of the buyers, you are one step ahead. You'd be surprised at the number of times I have shown homes to potential buyers,where we had to step over piles of dirty clothes, on the floor, or "try" and overlook last nights dinner dishes..still unwashed in the sink! It is not a great first impression, and it will make sure your home sits for many months on the market.

It is still a buyers market. Buyers are still buying houses as long as it looks appealing and it is priced right. By the way,someone at my office has the same name of yours too which is pretty intresting. Great post.
