Are you kidding me?

Clear Clutter Especially if Selling Your Home

By Michael Hughes   January 13, 2010

Raising the awareness that there is an importance to order.  It happens over time.  You buy something and hang it in your closet or store something in your garage.  All of sudden you notice its’ built up; Clutter!  It’s up to the ceiling.  Its in the kitchen, the garage, the closet and omg the kids’ rooms, the living room, every cupboard, bathroom, great room, storage locker, pantry or basement.  Julie Morgenstern preaches the system of S.P.A.C.E.  Sort, Purge, Assign, Containerize and Equalize.  Organizers are dedicated to using their philosophies and methods to provide a wide range of practical solutions that transform the way people, households and companies function. We have many fine organizers in Boulder.  http://www.hire-order.com/ OR http://www.servicemagic.com/rated.abc.7746290.html?link_id=11588 OR http://www.allingoodorder.com/

The Top Ten Reasons Your House is Not Selling (Reasons 10,9 and 8)

The Top Ten Reasons Your House is Not Selling (Reasons 10,9 and 8)

By Michael Hughes        November 19, 2009

10. Reason number ten your home is not selling, is your home does not show well. The paint may be lagging with age or that bright green called ‘Margarita’ that you thought looked so great 12 years ago, is no longer so great. The carpets need cleaning, the yard needs raking, the shrubs trimmed and well, it just needs to be the best house in its’ price bandwidth. It needs to be really spic and span sparkly clean inside and out.

9. Reason number nine your home is not selling, is your home smells “odd.” There is an
eau d’ wet dog or the cats’ litter box is full. Much as we love our pets a telltale pet odor is a real turnoff to many potential buyers. Let’s face it, odd pervasive odors of any kind, can turn potential buyers away. The house can be beautiful and well priced, but believe me people will turn on a dime and walk away if it smells “off.”

8. Reason number eight your home is not selling is the location. If your home’s location is less than desirable, your options are somewhat limited. A great real estate agent will do their best to help you accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative of your circumstances, say by using foliage to screen off offensive adjoining properties or dampen traffic noise. For instance it is a beautiful home out in the suburbs, it is well priced, but the minute you step outside you are noticing numerous insects and they’re biting! The solution to this is easy.
