It's Showtime! What To Do and What Not To Do

The sign is up and you are ready to show your home off! In any market, a hot one or not, you need to have your house prepared to show as soon as you are live! What should you do and not do for a showing?

Upgrades and Repairs:

If your home has undergone some major changes since you purchased your home, you may want to list these out. Many people will never even look at these but if they are interested they will. Upgrading your brass knobs on your kitchen is not a big deal to the buyer,but a new furnace, hot water heater or brand new roof is. Any transferable warranty should also be noted.

The list doesn't have to be long as I've stated, most people will not even notice it unless they do and if they do, they are not going to read a long list. A simple record is fine. If a professional was called in to do work, show receipts.

Neighborhood Info:

Not everyone looking at your home is familiar with the area. Show off your neighborhood with any information you have such as if there is …

Rainy Day in Williamsburg?


Cupcake Wars:
You’ve heard of the popular show on Food Network right? The girls and I love to get together and challenge each other on our cupcake making skills. We each choose a recipe from either a cookbook or an online publication, gather the ingredients and bake away. Of course presentation also counts too! Below is the latest winner!
Take a Dip:
 
Are you a member of James City County Rec Center? If so, why not take a dip in the pool and finish off in the hot tub? The kids can splash in the pool while you enjoy some R & R. If you are not a member, why not look into joining? With many activities going on, you can be busy as much or as little as you want.
Paint on Pottery: 
Located right next door to Quirks of Art in High Street, let Robin help you pick the perfect piece to add to your home. Spend time catching up with your kids and get creative too. Afterwards, why not drop by and say hi to us!
Visit Basset Hall:
Visit the home of John D. Rockefeller, Jr. and his wife Abby Aldrich Rockefeller during the restoration of Colonial Williamsburg. Show the kids some history and learn something for yourself. If you have a Good Neighbor pass, you pay once a year and can visit as many times as you would like. I would highly recommend getting one. It pays for itself.
Take the Ferry to Surry:
Why not? You are stuck inside anyways, why not pop on the ferry and check out the water for awhile. Have some tunes to listen to! Grab a bite to eat in at The Surry House Restaurant and then head home.
Happy Days!
