Because buying a home is an emotional experience, buyers frequently make their decision about a house within the first thirty seconds.

Look at your house as though you are seeing it for the first time. Does it appeal to you? Would you buy it?

By following Debbie’s HOME ENHANCEMENT PROGRAM and expending a little extra energy, you can increase the “instant appeal” and saleability of your property.
