This week's most shocking preparation or lack thereof!

Welcome to the Total Home Solutions Newsletter ~ Real Estate Blog Realtor Version.

Believe it or not! This is someone’s idea of getting a home ready to sell. I feel for the poor Realtor that is listing this house if this is the best room to take a picture of for the listing!

Outrageous lack of preparation!

Each newsletter we like to select a picture of shocking home preparation or lack any preperation. You as a Real Estate agent have seen it all but today’s winner ~ or loser~  didn’t even make the smallest attempt to prepare  for sale.

Where would you begin in this room. As an expert in the environment and how it affects us I can tell you that you can see (and probably feel)  for yourself this room needs help.


4 Reasons Google+ beats out Facebook for real estate

I love Google+ I know I am in the minority but I like the feedback I get when I post something. It seems that people who hang out there really want to be there and engage with others.

I also love that everything I write all across the web I get credit for since I am the author and most of all I love that you as a Realtor can use Google+ Local to promote yourself to your community! If you join Google+ make sure to find me I am under Kim Upstone and we can circle each other!
