When my realtor called me and said "can you come right over?" I knew it was serious.

I saw this the other day and thought it was smart - when staging a home for sale, put a large mirror in the front entry way. As the potential buyer comes in, they will already "see" themselves in their new home! Same with when they leave, reinforcing themselves in the home. I will plan to do that...
