It's time for a bit of a rant - a pet peeve - a no excuses, just do it conversation.
MAKE YOUR BED - we said it, we mean it, and we're not apologizing! Over the past couple of weeks we've seen some listings hit the market (hallelujah!), but evidently those homes got listed so fast they forgot to make the bed! Before you say maybe it was a kids room, its one of those "messy bed" looks - nope ... slept in, wrinkled sheets, you could even make out the sleep patterns. These homes are fabulous homes, lovely homes, but they are not prepared for the market. Now, we aren't going to put these homeowners address on blast because we're betting they are perfectly fine people and probably the nicest of the nice, but they didn't prepare their home for listing. Is this completely the homeowners fault? Not at all. While not all Realtors are staging experts, Realtors should take the expert care to ensure the home is prepared - and that includes making the bed. Not to mention none of these perfectly slept in bunks were professionally photographed. That's another conversation, but for now we digress.
We're here to tell you that not only should you make your bed, you should make it nice! What we mean by nice is that is should be aesthetically pleasing. You may very well be that individual who brings the romance to the bedroom with red bedding, but let's leave those in the linen closet for your next home! Invest in some neutral sheets, fluffy comforter and invest in a few throw pillows you can give a nice chop! Not sure what to purchase? Call us and we're happy to give some pointers.
So, to summarize - make your bed and make it nice - and call us to get it on the market!
