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 …

Williamsburg Christmas Parade















We have never gone to the parade since we moved to Williamsburg almost seven years ago! I know, I know... terrible parents. We are not morning people or we used to not be. As we age, we are starting to get up and out of the house on a Saturday earlier than we once did. 

What a fun event. We parked in the parking garage off Scotland where we were happy to learn parking was free today! Yay! I think because of the events of the weekend, (It's Grand Illumination weekend) Colonial is being generous. We did park on the top level but we were good. I'd brought a carafe of coffee to help my eyes stay open and we headed to Confusion Corner as it is called. This is where Jamestown Road meets Richmond and for tourists and locals alike, confusion sets in here. As soon as the parade was beginning to start, the road was blocked and the fun began. 

The fire trucks started us off. Molly was not very happy about the horns but she calmed down and wanted every person that walked by to pet her. Old cars followed along with local businesses and troops. The older girls school, Lafayette High and Berkeley Middle had a combined marching band which was nice to hear. Our favorites had to be when the herd of 50 St. Bernese walked by followed  by about 30 Newfoundlands. We love these dogs. The kids want a St. Bernese but Joe is adamant our next dog is going to be a Newfoundland. We will see. :)

After the parade ended, we scooped up Sage and her friends who came earlier and stopped at Food Lion so I could buy some sausage and juice. When we got home I whipped up pancakes and sausage before Ava and I headed out again for her WAC practice. Never a dull moment around here. 

Have a happy weekend!
