Momma knows best-- especially when staging.

Momma Knows Best!!

Until my son put his house on the market, I didn’t realize how comfortable you become with the no-nos of getting your home sold. Being 33 and never married, it was difficult  to get him to see what momma was saying made sense.

He did stain and seal the deck, planted flowers, added color (it was brown on brown on dark brown) to the living room and kitchen. Then when he had the flu, his girlfriend and I neutralized the wall art,rolled bath towels and put in baskets, added lighting and new comforter for the master. Oh, we even added decorative “foo-foo” pillows. He was too ill to care. His comment was “That he really couldn’t tell much of a difference”.

He has had over 20 showings in less than a week. I told him it was the photography and the  great video slide show his mother so lovely put together for him. After all, 90% of all buyers begin their search on the internet.

Tonight, a couple is returning for a second showing. Knowing the buyer needs emotional connection to the house and since it’s cool and rainy outside, I suggested he put a roast in the oven. He didn’t hesitate… I can do that!
