Sorry its been a few days since I’ve written, real estate has gone crazy here in Raleigh! Although I don’t have much time here today, I did want to mention something pretty important that I noticed this week that can be a major buzzkill when you’re selling your home.
Its been really HOT here the last few weeks. Like – gross, icky, hard to think hot. I went into a few homes that are on the market to shoot new photos and when I went inside it was like an oven! I could not WAIT to get out of these houses, as I was glowing almost immediately (I don’t sweat…I glow). Okay so I realize money is tight all over these days but come on people. Its the hottest time of the year, your house is on the market, you NEED to make a good first impression and you turn the air conditioning off? What’s going to happen when a buyer walks thru your front door only to feel like they’ve stepped into an oven? They are going to turn around and leave, that’s whats going to happen.
Comfort counts people, and I’m not saying your house should be a chilly 72 when you aren’t home, but at least turn the AC on to about 76 – 78 so that your buyers stay a while. After all, a buyer who walks in & out probobly isn’t going to be making an offer on your house.
