Curtain Time

July 28th, 2016 · 2 Comments

Creative shower curtains make a statement in any bathroom.

Hungry like the wolf?

How the West was won.

Horsing around.  Show this to your neigh-bors.

The dying tree.

These curtains soak up all of the shower water.  Very practical.

Keeping the shower curtain closed for the real estate photo makes the bathroom look smaller.  And a loud pattern then dominates the room.

Bathroom Mildew

When a bathroom doesn’t have an exhaust fan or a window that opens, mold and mildew can appear.

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.
