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 …

Caramel Pear with Gouda Bruschetta

This is such a light dish and is perfect at a party or to serve watching a movie. 


What You Need:

One Pear, sliced thinly
One Baguette cut into 1-2" Pieces
1 Stick Butter, Melted
2 Tbsp. Sugar
1 Tbsp. Cinnamon
Slices of Gouda Cheese
Caramel Syrup
Candied Nuts (Optional)

What to Do:

1. Preheat oven 350. Spray a medium size pan with cooking spray and set aside.

2. In a smallish bowl mix the melted butter, sugar and cinnamon. Dip bread pieces into the bowl, fully coating each. Place on pan. After all pieces have been coated, cook in oven for approximately 8-10 minutes. 

3. With a rough tear, place Gouda slices on top of the bread. Return to oven until cheese is bubbly. You can always just broil it quickly too.

4. Take out of oven and place on cute platter. Top each bread piece with a slice of pear. Once all of the bruschetta has been pear topped, drizzle with caramel syrup and top with candied nuts. 

Enjoy!
