Please take away our daily bread.  If a buyer doesn’t like it, how much effort will it take to remove it?  Something as simple as this could ruin a deal.

It’s fun to live near high-tension power lines.  It’s even more fun to live next to an electric substation.  Whee!

Hangover Hangout

March 12th, 2009 · No Comments

Someone sure likes to booze it up.  A lot.  Better to put them all away.  Otherwise it might create a negative opinion about the seller in the buyer’s mind, which could be reflected in a lower offer or even no offer.  Same goes for cigarette smoke and pet odors.

Game Rooms Gotta Go

March 12th, 2009 · No Comments

While living in your house, you can do whatever you like.  But when you sell your home, it’s best to return a room to its original function.  Otherwise it confuses buyers.

This is supposed to be a bedroom not a Nintendo or PlayStation playroom or a boxing ring.
