Great advice here from Sharon Tara and perfect analogy!!!

Original content by Sharon Tara

Today, as I was looking for an old post I had written, I found this one written five years ago. Seems far too appropriate not to share today since the Oscars were last night.

 

After all the hype and anticipation, the Academy Awards are over.

 

 

All that's left now is the fashion buzz.

Who wins "Best Dressed" and who gets criticized for their poor choice in style.

 

"There's no such thing as bad publicity."  Negative press regarding an actor's choice of formal wear isn't all that bad because it gets them talked about....it gets them the attention they crave and the attention they need to succeed in their business.

 

"The only thing worse than being talked about, is not being talked about."   Oscar Wilde

 

 

However, the same is NOT true when it comes to selling a home.  The last thing you want is potential buyers labeling your house "worst dressed".

 

 

 

 

When you list your home for sale, you should consider every showing as a walk down the red carpet.

Imagine thousands of people (wouldn't that be nice!) focused on every detail of your appearance....every last detail.

 

You only have that one chance to impress them, before they turn their attention to the next one, and then the next one after that.

Will you be the one they applaud and remember with high praise or will you be easily forgotten? Even worse....will you be the one they remember with their eyes rolling up as they make fun of you to others.

Don't be the "what were they thinking?"  listing.  

How you prepare and present your home for showings will determine whether you make a positive or negative impression!

Thank you so much Barbara for sharing my post....what a nice surprise this morning!

Thank you to everyone for the wonderful comments too!

Yes, Grant Schneider Roger hosted an awesome "Be The Star Of Your Own Movie" contest several years around this time of the year. We had so much fun with it. Unfortunately we no longer have access to Roger's posts.

 Kathy Streib and I have posts written as part of those contests though. We should revisit those someday.

Barbara you only get one first impression, so it is important to make it as positive as possible.
