I came across this old photo from Twitter today, and it made me chuckle. I’ll save calling out the person who sent it to me, although i still remember when she sent it – three years ago.
We were prepping her house for sale, and I’d given them their homework. They had a long list of things to do – some of them were pretty standard, like making sure all the light bulbs worked, or the registers were vacuumed out – and some of them were more labor-intensive. We also wanted to do some remodeling and decided to visit Atlas Ceramics for mosaics to replace our patio tiles. Although the list was daunting they were making progress, but at some point in the process she sent me this tweet:
Love ya mean it, EG!
Look, selling a home isn’t easy, but if you want to sell house fast in Texas, I don’t care how much stuff you read on the internet, or how easy it looks on HGTV, in order to get top dollar it takes work … and before it goes on the market, the bulk of that work falls on your shoulders. As we get closer to putting the house up for sale, much of that work will fall to me; things like professional photography, aerial work, laser measurements, and advance ad placement, for instance. But we currently have dozens of things in our workflow that need to be done when a home is ready for sale, and each of them – when done correctly – help to make the difference in getting a house sold, and getting a house sold for top dollar.
Want to see more of how we do it? We’re glad to talk. But regardless of whether you use us or not on your next home sale, remember my 3L’s of selling your home – Lights on, Lids down, and Leave.
