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.

Take the Train: From Richmond to New York City







What an amazing trip we just got home from. We weren't in New York City too long because we have other engagements we need to attend too but it was fun and exciting. Douglas wanted to go to New York and see the Yankees play the Red Socks for her sixteenth birthday. Although she is technically not sixteen until July 16th, this past weekend was when the Yankees were playing the Red Socks. We took the train from Staples Mill up to New York City. She hasn't ever been in a train so this was an new experience. 

Amtrak is a wonderful way to travel with a spacious leg room, air conditioned cars (bring a sweater) and a bathroom! So nice to allow someone else to do the driving and be able to sit back and relax. A lot of time during travel times, I drive and Joe works next to me on his laptop. I was able to sit back and see the scenery and I even watched a movie, No Strings Attached going up and Summer Rental coming back. 

We purchased drinks from the cafe car since we forgot our cooler in the refrigerator at home- It is ready to go again! On the way up we packed Farm Fresh's Spicy Fried Chicken, which is amazing, and homemade pasta salad. I'll share the recipe with you soon. Super simple and delicious.
