You’ve Got to Make Your Bed if Your House is For Sale

There are a couple of real estate adages that sellers can live by:

  • You don’t live in your home when it is not for sale the same way as when it is listed.
  • If you want to guarantee a showing don’t make your bed; the closer it looks like a bomb went off in your usually pristine home, the more likely you are to get a short-notice showing appointment.

Murphy’s Law type statements have limited use but now that RMLS has started to release actual Supra lockbox showing activity we might see some trends.
