These are great tips! I never would have thought about parking your car in front of your house to save the spot, but living in the city, that makes so much sense!!

Clean, clean, clean! I decluttered everything. I got rid of furniture that seemed to look to heavy for the room it was in. I made sure there wasn’t a wrinkle in any bedding. My only problem is the “CAT!” What do people do with the potty box? I clean it but while showing he does what cats do!!

I’m a real estate looking at online listings even though I’m not planning to move. I appreciate photos that take you through the house in an orderly fashion so you can get an idea of the floorplan. (An actual floorplan is a plus! If, of course, it’s a good floorplan) Show me the front door, then what you see when you step inside the house. I find it distracting to see the kitchen first, then a patio, then a bedroom, then another shot of the kitchen, etc. I know sellers think buyers want to see the kitchen, but when it’s first and keeps recurring throughout the presentation, the impression is that it’s the home’s only decent feature. Also, it can’t be said too often....close the toilet seat!
