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.

Visit: Surry, Virginia

This past week, hubby was out of town for awhile. He was in Atlanta, Montgomery and then back to Richmond for work. He then hopped a ride with his dad and family friend and headed to Greensboro, NC for the ACC Tournament. UVA played all three days and happily after 38 years won the title. Yay! So he stayed for awhile in Greensboro. I am happy he is home but sometimes when the hubby is away is a great time to play.

Mom and I packed up Douglas, Ava and Ava's friend Caitlyn for a day across the river in Surry, VA. It is nice to have a location and no plan sometimes. We rode the car ferry over and enjoyed getting out and snapping a few photos. We had lunch at Anna's an Italian Restaurant with perfect pizza and wonderful service. After we ate, I noticed a pamphlet for Chippokes State Park and though I have been to it from water, I had never been to it on land. What a wonderful find! We drove into the park not knowing what to expect but the park boasts a pool, campground, multiple walking trails, remote cabins for the perfect getaway weekend, a Farm and Forestry Museum, a Mansion you can tour and views of the James River. I would suggest this park anytime you are visiting this area of the country.
