Personal pictures sold the home.

I hear it all the time...take down all your personal photo's.

I have never been a strong believer in that.

And once again personal photo's were the difference.

We looked at 3 home today and walking into the 4th it was totally different.

The first 3 were nice, but just had an odd feeling.

The last home had photo's of the family.  One was of the family at Christmas in front of the fire place.

Mrs. client said, "Now this feels like a home and not a museum."

My clients are offering $3,000 over list price and we are not into multiples.  They just love this home and want the sellers to realize it.

 

Sometimes we don't just sell a house...WE sell a home!

 

 

There is a difference in selling a house and selling a home!
