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.

Talking Style

Today around the time Douglas came home from school, I was just back from a lunch at Opus where my mom and I treated a good friend to a belated lunch date and a quick stop at a new outlet in town. While unpacking a few finds from the store and hanging them in my closet I figured the time was right to clean out some of the junk that has been hiding in there for a bit. 

The time has come again in my fashion world where I hate everything I have bought in the past year. Everything is too ModClothy, to Ruchey... too colorful. I am in a black and white stage in my life right now with a hint of pastel pink. Is it the weather outside or the pudge I feel around my stomach from quitting smoking almost a year ago? I am not sure but at this point I am telling everyone I am only buying black and white at this point. This goes for clothes only and not jeans. I still love dark blue denim. Accessories can be other colors but mostly sticking with just black and white for awhile with a punch of pale pink when I feel the need. 

How about you? Are you in a style rut right now or are you happy with your closet? I am loving these right now.
