Keep the home simple, clean and neet, well kept and maintained, repairs done and priced according to the age of the home, property and location. Period. I have never in my 20 years seen a home sell because it was stage...

I had a lot of fun today shopping with a client. She wants to reupholster the love seat and wing chairs in her great room. We went to U.S. Fabric Mill Outlet on Ottawa St. in Hamilton Ont. They had a super selection of fabrics at reasonable prices. For a nominal fee, you can have a 'loaner' whil...

  I know... I know .... why should you invest more money when the buyers are just going to come in and make changes. The answer is simple .... to sell as quickly as possible and for the best possible price! I met a couple today who have lived in their home for 20+ years. They are selling in hope...

Julia has created a cute post. It's also a very true post. Sellers definitely have to meet buyers expectations. If you want top price for your home you need to present a top quality product. Think of a buyer's visit as Speed Dating. You have just a few minutes before that bell rings and they move...
