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 …

Fall Trends We Can All Live With

Fashion suffers a backlash after all the trends from a season fuse into many seasons. They begin to mix into one pile of way the hell too much. After all the nail art, the smoky eyes, the red lips, the rings and bracelets that cover every inch of your body and the shoes that are a mile high, people get irritated and drowsy on all the items it takes to pull one outfit together. 

This season's fashion is a blank slate. Start fresh. Take off your polish. Scrub your eyes and lips clean. Unwrap all the wrappings on your arms and place the jewelry back in its pearly case to rest for awhile. Easy, breezy fall is here. Wrap up in a cozy scarf; pull on a pair of silky socks and sip on a pumpkin latte for a bit. Shopping season is in front of us so be thankful a second and be rest assured, fall trends are easy to accomplish.



Wrap Up in Scarf: With so many selections, scarves are bits of a fabric store you can test out each and every day.  Roll out of bed, throw on a t-shirt, a pair of jeans and add your flat boots to your feet. Dress it up with stripes one day, skulls the next and florals the following. Instead of dropping $15 or more dollars on each scarf, head up to your local fabric store and purchase half a yard of fabric. You can mix and match while spending little to nothing on a new look everyday and what women doesn’t want a new look every day!



Strip Your Nails to Bare Minimum: Nail Art is dead. It’s time to move on. Don’t worry, it will come back around as all does in fashion. For now enjoy running a clear coat of paint over your nails and calling it a day. Instead of spending hours in the nail salon how about an hour in the massage parlor instead, seems like a winner to me!



Single Process Hair Is Back: Pick a color and stick with it. Ombre was a nice look for awhile but the time has come to say farewell and highlighting your hair was so 90’s. Super blonde is in as well as super brown, black and red. No burgundy or maroon, just red!



Pack Away All Those Rings and Wraps: Our wrists and hands are tired of wearing all that metal, fabric and beading.  Bare skin is back and there is nothing wrong with that. Classic skin is bare skin.  Let the jingle belong to the dog and cat.

Fall is a time for relaxation and fashion should be just that. Take a breather, let go of things not meant be and plan for your next big thing. It is much simpler to begin anew when your surroundings are quiet.
