Until my son put his house on the
market, I didnâ€™t realize how comfortable you become with the no-nos of
getting your home sold. Being 33 and never married, it was difficultÂ 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,Â added lighting and new comforter for the master. Oh, we even
added decorative â€œfoo-fooâ€ pillows. He was too ill to care.Â His
commentÂ was â€œThat he really couldnâ€™t tell much of a differenceâ€.
He has had over 20 showings in less
than a week. I told him it was theÂ photography and the Â great video
slide showÂ his mother so lovelyÂ put togetherÂ 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 sinceÂ itâ€™s cool and rainy outside, I suggested he put a roast
in the oven. He didnâ€™t hesitateâ€¦ I can do that!
