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.

Update

Wednesday is my 36th Birthday! Good Lord! I feel 16 still but I guess that is a bit odd when you have a 17 year old. Lately we have been taking it easy. Didn't do much this weekend and didn't drink all that much either. Sometimes we need a break, right? 

We planned on hitting up the Lafayette Rams, Jamestown Eagles game Friday night but this coastal storm brought rain most of the weekend. Instead we chilled, talked with a friend of mine I haven't seen in a bit and hit the bed early.

Saturday morning I got ready for my Open House. Pulled on my Hunters and pushed signs into the wet earth. I had a couple of people stop by but the house being on this tall hill kept some from coming in. I would wave as they circled the cove and drove by. Well, when you know what you want... 

Saturday evening was our Rookie Dinner. We dined on amazing homemade meatballs, chicken parmesan and this amazing Italian sauce. It was delightful. Came home around ten. I waited until Douglas made it home from her job and I closed my eyes. 

Sunday I shampooed the carpets, watched my Raiders win and tried to finish the book I'm ready before our vacation. I'll tell you more about it later. 

About to cook dinner. Getting Joe to fry up the chicken and having a lemon butter sauce.

Oh, and I was in the paper this weekend.
