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 …

What's Been Happening Around Here

We spent quite a bit of time this weekend shopping. The weather was perfect until Sunday. We were able to get outside and wear sleeveless clothing, pop on our shades and open the sunroof. I love days like this. Some people love cold weather and I got you, I do too, but I'm over it. I'm ready to not have to have a coat and a pair of socks on my feet. 

The girls and I went shopping this past Saturday while Joe went to meet his dad borrowing the power washer. We didn't power wash last year so this year the outside of the house is grody. If you live anywhere near the coast, you know how mold and mildew run rampant. We are getting ready to spray it down and start fresh.

After we chop down this birch tree, that sits entirely too close to our house, we are starting a raised garden this year. We have planted in pots and did well before. Last year, we planted right in the ground. The spot we planted into the ground though, has now been taken over with shade from trees getting larger in our yard. Now we must move the location. I love fresh herbs and veggies especially when I can walk outside and pick something from the ground. I cannot wait for fresh basil again. There is nothing better than fresh basil, tomatoes, mozzarella and balsamic reduction.

Last night was a night that will not happen again for a long time. UVA, The University of Virginia, and UVM, The University of Memphis, met in the tournament to see who made it to the Sweet Sixteen. I love sports and I am Alumi of The University of Memphis. I live in Virginia and we are huge Hoo Fans! SO, who could I pick to win. Well, I didn't. Virginia won though and I have to say I am excited. First time in over 20 years that UVA has made it the Sweet Sixteen!




            





         

             I really want to read this! ------->


Has anyone read these? They seem very interesting. I see Steal Like An Artist is a my library but not Show Your Work. Planning on picking up Steal tomorrow. 

I have a tube of lotion next to my kitchen sink you must pop the top to experience. Lately, I feel a pump would best fit my needs.I mean, it's not a huge deal but it kind of is. 

Have you smelled Caldrea's Mandarin Vetiver? Yum!


Who loves Netflix? We do! We got done watching Breaking Bad which was awesome and Aaron Paul is a doll. Now we have started to re-watch 24 as we gear up for the new season. Love Jack and CHLOE!!


This is what I watch going to bed. I love Magnum and I really never noticed how damn hot Tom Selleck was until I started watching this show. It's amazing how many actors and actresses wanted to be on this television show! Sharon Stone, Carol Burnett and Eugene Roche all show their face. 

Love this but it's been sold. :(

Trying this Blue Moon Ice Cream Shake.. Have you heard about these yet? I hadn't until my husband told me about them.
