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:

Leftover Turkey Burritos


I am not the best food photographer so please forgive me but I will toot my own horn about my cooking. Douglas tells me I should be on Chopped. Although I think I win, yes I'm pretty darn confident in that, I am scared about being on TV. 

With Thanksgiving coming up and turkey will be leftover, I have a great recipe for you to try. We fried a turkey this past Sunday and it was wonderful that day but wow, what you can do with the leftovers is amazing.

What You Need: 

Three Cups Cooked, Chopped Turkey
1 Medium Onion Diced
1 Cup Quartered Cherry Tomatoes
2 Tsp. Taco Seasoning
1/2 Cup Water
1 1/2 Cup Taco Sauce
2 Cups Shredded Cheese Blend
10 Flour Tortillas

What To Do:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 

In a large skillet with a lid pour 1 to 2 tsp. Olive Oil. With the cook top on high, heat the oil until you can tell it has thinned out. It is hot now. Add 1/2 tsp salt and  1 tsp. pepper to the skillet. Add Onions. Stir the onions with the salt and pepper and let sit until the edges brown. Turn heat down, stir and let caramelize for ten minutes. Stir so the onions do not stick to the pan. 

Once the onions have cooked for ten minutes, add your chopped turkey. Heat for around two minutes. Add taco seasonings and water. Add tomatoes. Cover skillet and cook until water has absorbed. Remove from heat and add 1 cup of shredded cheese. Stir until creamy.

In a casserole dish, spread 3/4 cup of taco sauce to the bottom of the dish. Heat tortillas in microwave for 40 seconds. 

Spoon meat mixture down center of each tortilla; roll up. Place, seam side down, in dish. Place in dish. Reserve a small amount of meat mixture to place on top of casserole. With reserved taco sauce, spoon evenly over filled tortillas. Cover with foil.

Bake for 20 minutes. Uncover; top with remaining cheese. Bake uncovered for 7-10 minutes until cheese has melted and attained the brown look you like.
