Don't Wait Buyers--- If It Feels Right--- It is.

I love helping buyers find their dream home. I don't always love when my buyers don't see the right one, right away. As a Realtor, many times we "know" the house before you do. A great buyer's agent should ask enough questions about your likes and dislikes and get to know how you live in a home so that when "The One" comes along we are ready to jump as quickly as you are!

The worst is when we "know" it and you don't see it until it is under contract.

Of course, I would never tell you you are missing out because that is rude and it isn't my job to talk you into a home. The thing is, this typically becomes the turning point in home buying. This is when you as the buyer realize that sometimes waiting is the worst thing you can do.

Like the time when I know I had to have this Leopard Coat I LOVED but knew husband doesn't care for animal prints so I left it at the store. Then I thought about it all night. I even dreamed about it. The nex…

4 Paint Colors Buyers Turn Their Nose To

I will tell you,when you call me in for a listing interview, I will tell you a fresh coat of paint will sell your home must faster than scuffed up, flat painted walls. According to HomeAdvisor, typically painting all the walls in your home will run you around $1700. Be careful in the selection though or your may regret your decision later. 

So what colors should you avoid?



1. Orange: I went to UT Knoxville and met my husband. We started our family wearing Orange but it really isn't the most attractive to color to paint any room and especially not the outside of the house. NEVER. For the sake of your Realtor's sanity and your neighbors. 

2. Neon Green: I recently walked into what was once a kids room in a empty house listed in a great neighborhood and had to put on my sunglasses. Hey, I get it. Your kid's favorite color but your new buyers? Not so much.


3. Fairy Tale Pink: Again, I get it. Your daughter is obsessed and you want to make her happy but those people looking to buy a house, they hate it.


4. Browns and Yellows: This once was a smart move in real estate. Everyone was into yellow walls and dark floors. Not so much anymore. Today it is more about grays, blacks and white. Paint the wall, leave the floors. Also, it photographs terribly.

What are your thoughts?
