I have seen it time and again. People trusting an article slanted to benefit the author, relying on what others tell them and listening to uninformed opinions without doing any research themselves. Today I want to bring to light some very important points that everyone who owns a home and will probably eventually sell at some point, need to consider. #1 Listening to the advice of friends about which Realtor to hire. Don’t be afraid to interview a few Realtors…

One factor that can be overlooked when getting your home ready to sell is the focus of some of your time and energy to enhance its appeal to a select group of people, those most likely to make an appearance at your open houses. OK settle down long time readers! Yes the first step is to wipe the slate clean, which allows you to attract a wide group of buyers. If you have taken the Total Home Solutions Audio Program and followed the recommendations for Staging and Feng Shui, then you are miles ahead of the other home sellers.

Let me explain what I mean. Let's say that you have already staged and applied Feng Shui principles to your home, and now you are ready to add a little something interesting and pump up the appeal. What could you do? Something that will not scare away buyers in a different demographic group, while at the same time entices buyers. It is a balance that can be achieved with forethought and care.
