NOTHING. All the realtors on our mountain MLS tour agreed..."GREAT CONDO" they wrote on their evaluation cards..."PRICED RIGHT"...."NICE LISTING!" So what's up? I know the economy is trashed, the real estate market is down but, hey, this is Schweitzer Mountain Resort...This is Sandpoint, Idaho! This place rocks! My wife and I decided to switch it up.
We decided to follow the rules of Feng Shui and "redecorate" the condo (we did get the clients approval, by the way). We needed to cure what was wrong. We didn't go too nuts but we did try to utilize a few principles of balance (Yin/Yang) to create a more welcoming atmosphere.
It is a small condo, so we really only needed to attack one room...the family room. It is a square room but within the room was a rectangular table. The table had leafs, so we extended those to create a round table...it now reflected the shape of the room.
We changed the placement of the sofa so that it faced the door and windows...this offers more of a feeling of security. We brought in a basket of fresh, colorful fruit - a symbol of wealth and prosperity...yang colored fruits (red pomegranites, oranges and pineapples).
Basically, we rearranged the place as best we could following my wife's suggestions (an accomplished Feng Shui practicer). It felt good. I actually noticed the difference.
One week after the Feng Shui make-over, we had a clean Purchase & Sale Agreement to present the client. Question...is this just a conincidence? I know this, my next listing will have some elements of Feng Shui implemented from the start!
