Motivational Post for 4/28/19

"Well done is better than well said."
There is a saying Eyes are the Windows to the Soul. By the same token, when buying a home aesthetics are key. At the Dallas Arboretum, the Foxgloves got my attention but it was the windows that opened up my mind to possibilities and that is where my focus on this blog post begins.
The Home Buying Process
Before a buyer can look out a seller's windows to decide whether or not they want to buy a home, they have to be attracted to what they see from the outside looking into possibilities. Clean windows and doors will help prospective buyers to embrace their own truth about deciding on a home to buy.
Tricks and Treachery are the practice of fools, that don't have brains enough to be honest - Benjamin Franklin
When I show houses and the blinds and windows are closed, I can't help wonder what are the sellers hiding and what is outside that window? Many buyers feel the same way. Something I may see frequently when I pull back the curtains is windows with condensation problems or blinds that don't have ease of operation to open them when you want the buyers to see what they are buying. Trying to see out of a cloudy window is not attractive. Fine word descriptions in the MLS listing means nothing if something is hidden.
Windows of Opportunities
A Seller has many windows of opportunities to get their home sold. A Listing Agent needs to be honest in marketing and advertising and so do sellers when completing the Seller's Disclosure. Many key decisions are made when people are able to stare with interest from the outside or better yet the inside of a glass window. Buyers lose focus when things seem foggy or defects are hidden. Fogging that occurs between the glass panes can't be fixed. Glass replacement is the only solution. If a glass company determines new windows or glass replacement is the only solution it may be the best window of opportunity for the Seller to have it fixed before listing. It really is true, widows do speak louder than words.
