We spend lots of time watching the remodeling/renovation shows on Home and Garden TV. We’ve learned all the vocabulary for this project of ours: curb appeal, staging, dated, shabby, clutter, priced to sell, overpriced for the market, maintenance deferred, defined space, etc.
And we have learned all kinds of real-estate-type-stuff that we had little knowledge of a year ago:
1. Keep the interior neutral. The key is to appeal to the largest number of buyers. Earth tones rule these days.
10. Make sure everything in the house is in working order, so the house is move-in ready.
We spend a lot of time talking in these terms lately. We’ve become experts in the area of home-selling. When the time comes to put the house on the market, WE’LL BE READY!!!
