(1) Start with the CEILING. Crazy, but a ceiling will make a room sparkle! We did this with a listing, as the owner was short of money, and it sold. (2) Avoid loud colors. Go to a paint store and see what is popular there. No red dining rooms now. (3) Change front door if necessary. (4) Clean the bathrooms WELL, (5) Be sure all lights in and out are working as they should, to make the property bright and cheery. THIS IS JUST A BEGINNING, BUT ELBOW GREASE CAN WORK WELL in selling the home.

MILLENNIAL HOMEBUYERS have ECONOMIC EDGE in TEXAS – part 2
What we are seeIng in Texas is that student loan debt levels are actually lower than what we have seen in other areas such as the west, south-central regions. Partly for this reason younger buyers can now visit with a lender and look to buy something while interest rates are still low, but less inventory in lower priced homes. Just takes a while to find something, but most Realtors are glad to work with you, IF A BUYER STAYS WITH THEM TILL CLOSING. Now is a good time to buy! Sorry this last sending was about Valentine’s spending, but just too good a holiday to pass up.
HOW WILL YOU SHARE YOUR LOVE THIS VALENTINE’S DAY?
Americans will spend $1.6 billion on candy, 51% of Americans will buy red roses and 151 million cards will be exchanged.

WHAT A CHANGE OF SPENDING MONEY CAM DO TO OUR COUNTRY!! HAPPY VALENTINE’S 2016.
MILLENNIAL HOMEBUYERS have ECONOMIC EDGE in TEXAS – part I
Conventional wisdom has it that student loan debt and difficulty finding jobs largely keep millennials out of the home-buying market. Not necessarily, says a researcher with the National Association of Realtors (NAR). And numbers point a more positive picture in Texas. According to NAR’s Jessica Lautz the millennials are the largest generation of homebuyers for the 3rd consecutive year and Texas has the “financial edge” over other states. MORE TO COME.
