Houses are buiildings. Houses aren't always home.
I would not want to live in the house beside which someone decided to sit on the curb and gulp down a handful of little alcohols, without even recycling their empties.
Random notes to people selling houses:
Do you own the world's biggest dog? Perhaps you should scoop up your yard before a scheduled showing, even if your yard is a concrete and dirt enclosure.
And maybe put away the world's biggest doggie water dish while you are at it. (And this wasn't even in the same house mentioned above!)
Maybe you could also sweep up the dead carpenter bees from your enclosed sun room, rather than have me ask you to do so. Maybe.
All those home shows that talk about de-personalizing your home are right, especially if your taste in decorating with photos includes photos of JFK that were put up while he was still a senator. Just sayin.
All those coconut husks drying in the basketball hoop aren't quaint; they are weird.
Tidy up your yard!
Invest in a good air cleanser. Or open some windows before the buyers get there.
Just some friendly tips from a prospective buyer that got a little worried at some of the houses today!
