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 …

Stay: Hale Springs Inn



 Want to stay somewhere Presidents of the USA have stayed? Well that is just what we did on our last trip to Rogersville, Tennessee. Usually we stay with family or at the Comfort Suites but this time we wanted to try out a new scene. The Hale Springs Inn is a wonderful addition to the town.

Situated on Main Street,  the Hale Springs Inn has undergone many renovations and owned by many different people. After the Inn closed in the 80's it was bought and restored to its 1820-1830's appearance. The Rogersville Heritage Association now runs the Inn. In fact much of the furniture that resides in the Inn is on loan from many of the families that reside in the town. 

What I find really awesome though, because the town wanted the inn to survive they opened a bar. Now you may think what's the deal with opening a bar in a hotel? Well, before this bar, there was not a bar anywhere in Rogersville and the whole county was dry. You had to drive quite aways to get a drink in any resturaunt and you better make sure you had brought wine when you came to visit. So now, in 2014 you can have a drink where presidents stayed a long, long time ago. 

What We Loved: The essence of the hotel, the bed was super comfortable, the rooms are huge, the cleaning staff was super nice, the decorations for Christmas were superb, we chose a room in the back of the hotel, the location.

We We Didn't Love: The breakfast was less than superb, my eggs were cold and the server was not great and one lady who worked the front desk acted like she didn't like us being there.
