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: The Museum of National History

It's amazing after the multiple visits to the National Mall in DC, I have never visited The Museum of National History. I have seen the Air and Space Museum many times and paraded around the Capitol, many of the monuments and even done a cartwheel at the Reflecting Pool but never stepped foot in this awesome structure!


The girls and I, along with my mom, trekked the ten blocks from our hotel in the FRIGID temperatures on Saturday and into the warm enveloping arms of The Museum of National History. We waited on my mother-in-law, Susan, and sister-in-law, Lindsey, to arrive via Metro. While waiting we were asked to volunteer for this bird game the museum was testing and because all my girls are three years apart in age, they were just perfect in testing how different age groups would take to it. They were a hit at the game and the developer was quite impressed with my young-ins. 

After Susan and Lindsey arrived and we deposited our coats in the coat room, I would suggest this in the winter, we stepped into a new world of possibilities. The world of natural history is an interesting one with many view points. I am happy with many viewpoints.
