“A focal point is an area specifically meant to draw attention and create interest in a room. It punctuates the room and makes it inviting. The focal point could be an architectural detail, a fireplace with a great mirror above it, a large beautiful painting, a lovely cabinet, and so on. Each room needs a focal point to help it feel balanced. Go throughout your home and see if you can clearly identify a focal point in each room. If a focal point is cluttered or non-existent, take some steps to improve it or create a new one.”

Address those Weakspots before they become a point of concern

Does your home have a “potential weakspot”? Notice what Atlanta Fine Homes blog suggests you can do to address this:

Take potential buyers’ attention away from the weak spots. For example, the home had a master on the main, which is a desired feature, but the master bathroom and closet were smaller than buyers may have expected. “In the closet, I made sure I had an outfit on display,” she said. By drawing the eye to the outfit hanging up, she hoped buyers would not dwell on the closet’s size.”

Claim your home on Zilllow?

What is a ZILLOW ?

Notice what the folks at had to say about the awesome advantage of CLAIMING your home on

“Whether you’re thinking of selling your home soon or you’re planning to stay there long-term, claiming your home on Zillow is a good idea. Here’s why: When you claim your home on Zillow, you can edit the property details for your home. You may find that the number of bedrooms or bathrooms or the square footage is listed incorrectly or that some of the features of your home – like the fact that you have hardwood floors, a fireplace, a security system, or other upgrades – have not been included.”

 Hide any sign of Fido? 

Notice what the mortgage guys atlanta blog had to say about the importance of HIDING any signs of Pets you may have:

“While most people agree that pets are important members of the family, not everyone is pet-friendly. Remove food and water bowls and make sure the litterbox is out of sight and kept clean so buyers who aren’t animal lovers aren’t turned off. Most importantly, keep your pets crated or better yet, with you during an open house.”

You mean my chartreuse painted walls might hurt me?

Finally here is a suggestion  from blog about painting your home in NEUTRAL colors.
