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:

The Only 12 Fashion Tips You Need

With so much information available on the internet these days, it can be a little overwhelming. These twelve fashion tips though are the only ones you need. 

1. Buy only what you LOVE! Who hasn't gotten home with an item you kind of liked in the store and never wore it when you went out? Don't do it. It is a waste of time and resources. 

2. Parties and Weddings Should Not Be a Time to Try a New Look Out.Stick with what you know looks good on you. You do not want to look back at photos from the event and cringe at your fashion choice for the evening.

3. Run No More: Spray tights and pantyhose with a cheap hairspray to avoid holes and runs. It works best if you do this before you put them on.

4. Blot, Blot, Blot Stains: Do not rub. Do not scrub. Do not wipe. Spills are best dealt with by blotting. 

5. Thinking of Thrifting? Think again. Maybe you are over the cut but not over the fabric of an item. Why not think of using it to reupholster a chair cushion or make a new pillow?

6. Old Coat = New Coat: Tired of your old coat? Before dropping a large sum of money on a new one think of revamping it with brand new buttons. Ask a tailor to replace the old liner with a new fun fabric. 

7.Blush Break on Your Clothes? Use one of those pre-moistened makeup remover wipes to clean it up just fine!

8. Patent Leather Shoes Looking Blah? Windex with a rag will restore the shine right back to them.

9. Want Perfect Hair and Skin? Invest in a pretty silk pillowcase for flawless skin and smooth hair.

10. Jeans Smell but You Don't Want to Wash Them? Place in a freezer bag for two days and the odor is eliminated. Yes!

11. Short Legs: Nude pumps all day, everyday!

12. Not Sure Which Jeans to Purchase? The smaller size is the winner. They will stretch.
