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 …

Go Ape National Live Life Adventure Day

Go Ape invited me and my husband to try the Go Ape Treetop Adventure located in Williamsburg, Virginia in anticipation for Go Ape's National Live Life Adventurously Day that is this Saturday, September 27th.

What is Go Ape's National Live Life Adventurously Day, you ask? Every ticket purchased for this Saturday's event, Go Ape is donating one ticket to Big Brothers Big Sisters.  National Live Life Adventurously is your chance to get out of your comfort zone and make a positive change in your life while helping someone else! Who wouldn't want to do that?

How was it? So Awesome! The weather was perfect and the experience is one Joe and I won't forget. We arrived fifteen minutes before our schedule time slot. We filled out the necessary paperwork required and then looked around listening to sounds of those ahead of use enjoying the park. We heard exciting yays, claps and whoo hoo's. The experience of zipping through the trees brings it out in your.

Once we began our guide, Neil, instructed us on proper techniques and adjusted our safety harnesses. He guided us through the introduction zip line and when we were ready, he released us to our own devices. He didn't forget about us though. He was out there along the way making sure we were comfortable in what we were doing and the more we did, the more we were.

The Treetop Adventure has six sites along the way with tricky crossings that includes bridges and tunnels made from wood, rope, and super strong wire. I skipped the difficult rings course. We got a workout while we were there. Climbing up ladders made from rope, walking across tiny bridges while looking down as you hang from above and then zipping to the bottom in order to get to your next site. Super Fun! It was a blast. We feel extremely lucky to be asked to participate in this amazing adventure and sharing with you ur experience.

Step out of your comfort zone this weekend and share with Big Brothers, Big Sisters!
