I

Clean – Everything - Always

II

Spend at least 3 hours out in the fresh air. Then take a good whiff of the inside of your house as you walk through its front door. Proceed accordingly.  Do this at least once a week

III

If you’re a seller you were once a buyer. What pleased you – what turned you off?   Stage accordingly

IV

If you must cook cabbage or fish, do it on the barbeque

V

Get rid of clutter.  Keep the closets half empty.  It makes your house look bigger.

VI

Repair everything that needs fixing - everything

VII

You will recoup expenses spent on repairs twofold when the house is sold

VIII

It is okay to keep family pictures on display. Buyers aren’t stupid; they can look beyond personal items

IX

Bathrooms must be spotless at all times

X

Remember that once you sign a listing agreement, it is no longer your home. It is merchandise.
