“Not your house any more!”

It’s true. Once a home is put on the market for sale, it becomes a product you’re selling¬†and no longer has the same status as being just your home.

You have no more privacy.

Your neighbors will judge you as they walk through any open house you might have.

You can’t leave the toilet un-flushed and the seat up any more.

There will be umpteen “drive-bys” making you wonder if someone is pulling a Bugsy Siegel on you.

I’ve often said that inviting guests over to visit provides an incentive to clean up. Putting a home on the market has the same effect.

Plus, we get rid of a lot of clutter.

Do you have a story to share about when your home was put on the market?
