How do you not see the mildew and mold on the ceiling and then not do anything about it?

The air is not safe to breathe.

They Didn’t Get the Memo

January 27th, 2016 · No Comments

Most buyers nowadays would prefer a home that’s neat and tidy, not cluttered.  Just saying.

It’s okay to pack it all away before selling.  You’d have to pack it anyway when the house sells.  Why not do it now and sell it faster and for more money?

Don’t let buyers get distracted by all of your stuff instead of focusing on the features of the house.

Ask a friend for advice on what to remove and tidy up if you are not sure.  Another suggestion:  take photos of your rooms and then look at them.  You’ll see things differently.

Tips For Good Real Estate Photography

December 7th, 2015 · 3 Comments

Here are some helpful suggestions for taking the best real estate photos.

Don’t take close-up photos.  If the general public can’t figure out what your photo is about, then step back and retake the photo.

Don’t let yourself be seen in real estate photos.  Buyers don’t want to see the photographer.

Don’t let your photography equipment show up in real estate photos either.  Not very professional looking.
