3 Most Important Factors When Selling your home!

  • If you are in a seller’s market, price it just below the market value to hopefully generate multiple offers above the list price.
  • Make it easy for buyers and their agents to show your home. Buyers are easily frustrated and turned off when they see a home for sale and it takes days for them to get in to see it.
  • Declutter and depersonalize. That means remove all the family photos, piled up laundry, dishes, toys, papers, etc.

There are several more important steps to factor in before selling; including curb appeal, paint choices, staging, picking the right agent, etc.

Number 1 Bathroom Lesson You Have to Teach Your Child

This morning started out like any other morning. Work, social media, email, phone, work, coffee, breakfast, work, etc. Then around 9:30am I hear a faint voice calling to me from the top of the stairs… “Diana, I need a little help in the bathroom…” I’m just wrapping up a phone call so I yell up (with the phone on mute of course), “Ok sweetie, I will be there in a couple minutes.” As I finish my call and give one quick glance to my email I begin to hear some scuffling upstairs. I get the sinking feeling that I might be walking into more than a little mess upstairs… As I round the corner on the landing I can already see the water seeping towards me. Our 9 year old clogged the toilet and kept flushing while he was trying to plunge it. Kudos to him for trying to fix it! There was at least half a roll of toilet paper in there! The water had flooded the upstairs bathroom, hallway, and laundry area. It was a mess!

Here is the #1 Lesson to Teach Your Child About the Bathroom:

Teach them how to shut off the water at the base of the toilet so you don’t walk into this on a Saturday morning! 🙂
