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 …

Visit: Family Greenhouse














Every visit to Rogersville wouldn't be complete without a trip to our family's greenhouse. Martins Greenhouse is run by my uncle and aunt along with other aunts and a slew of cousins. They are always super sweet when we get to see them although, I always wish more of the cousins were there when we came. I guess around the holidays many of them are off! ;) Good for them.

What is so awesome about Martins? If you have ever visited Dollywood in Gatlinburg, Tennessee and seen the beautiful plants, well here is who grows them from seedlings. 

When we stopped by, we were told we just missed the huge poinsettia collection but we were excited to see all of the succulents they were growing. A trend, is what they called them at Martin's. It seems that succulents are the "it" thing right now for the younger generation in weddings. I think I have seen quite a few blogs with these beauties gracing their webpages. We were told to take what we wanted. Each of the girls, Joe and I each chose a plant. They are sitting in our sunroom now, freezing. Poor things.
