Make Them All the Same!

Tuesday, July 19th, 2016

When it comes to recessed lighting in your home,

it is best if you have the same bulb type and wattage in each.

The light in the room will be more balanced for it!

If you can’t replace all of them immediately,

focus on your main living areas first, then the bedrooms.

The Vacant House Necessities

Tuesday, November 10th, 2015

If you are putting a vacant house on the market and you won’t be living close enough to take care of it, you need to leave some house necessities for your agent.  Here are the best things I recommend to have on hand:

  1. Toilet Paper – This is the No.1 necessity. People will use the bathroom.
  2. Paper Towels – And these are a close 2nd.  You never know when you will have a spill.
  3. Hand Soap – This is needed in the kitchen and bathrooms.
  4. Trash Cans. Have at least 1 or 2 small ones in the house and one outside.
  5. Floor Coverings. Door mats at your entrances or runners down hallways will  protect your floors from track marks.
  6. Air Filters – Buy the one that last for 3 months and make it easier for you and your agent.
  7. Couple of Boxes of Light Bulbs – This is so important. No one likes walking into a dark house.
  8. Broom – This great utensil can take care of so much!
  9. Cleaning Wipes – They make it easy to clean on the spot.
  10. Air Fresheners – Stand alone or plug-in – both work great!

And can improve the look or condition of your home…

1. Shower liner – It is very common for mold to collect over time on your shower liner.

2. Air filter – Replace or clean once a month and your AC will be running well for doing so.

3. Caulk – This product does wonders for so many areas.

4. Light Bulbs – Have working light bulbs in your electrical fixtures and then turn them on for a showing.

5. Mulch – This another great purchase…Mulch does wonders for improving the look of flower beds, children’s play areas and bushes.

Make Sure They Are All On … And Working!

Monday, June 10th, 2013

The other day my housekeeper asked if I wanted her to replace the burned out bulb in the bathroom.  “It’s out?” I asked. And as I walked into the room, sure enough one of the three bulbs was not lit. I didn’t even notice it.

But when your house is on the market, it’s  important not only to know if your lights are burned out, but to get them replaced too!  Lights do a lot for a prospective buyer.  They offer a better ability to see a room; they enhanced the feel of a room; and most of all, they provide greater comfort to buyers when they see that they’re all working.

So look inside and out to see if you have any of these culprits dimming your next showing:
