The FlyLady Moving Tips

By
Real Estate Agent with Prudential Rubloff

One of my favorite websites is Flylady.net.  She is a true inspiration.  I don't know if it is because she helps bring order to my hectic and unpredictable life or if it's the wonderful tips I can pass along to my clients and friends.  I guess it's a combination of both.

flylady.netHer section on Moving Tips makes you think she was a Realtor in a past life.  She talks in depth about removing clutter.  It's a topic some Realtors shy away from, "I don't want to offend my client."  I think about it as a door to talk about value, and the value potential buyers will see in a clean, non-cluttered, well maintained home.

Her first suggestion is "Don't move anything you don't love."  I try to use this when I am talking with my sellers and trying to convince them to remove some of the clutter and very personal items (photos, unique objects, etc.). If you love it, keep it and pack it away right now so you won't have so much to do once we get a contract.

She also outlines much needed packing items, moving timelines, and how to stay sane during the process.  As a Realtor, it is my job to get clients the highest price possible for their property.  Flylady suggestions help me do just that.

Sherry -

Until tonight, I never thought to check and see if anybody had blogged about FlyLady yet.  I found a few other posts and at last I know I'm not the only Realtor that needs her!  A good friend (who happens to now be a Realtor) introduced me to FlyLady and things started to get under control pretty quickly...I think a few of my clients were what made me start taking her seriously.  I saw what *could* happen if I didn't get off my Franny!  It's nice to not be alone...

You need reminding, with all those emails?  LOL... I could write a 10 page blog about how she's helped me (and my clients)... you wouldn't consider that a copycat, would you?
