What is an “A” grade when selling your Novi home or your Metro Detroit home

When selling your Novi home or any Metro Detroit home there are many grades

F is for failing.  F is for Failing to listen to your real estate agent or the market analysis.  If you don’t listen to your real estate agent on what homes are selling for and price your home high in this market your home is going to sit on the market.  You won’t be selling your home anytime too soon if you over price your house.

D is for De-cluttering your Novi home.  Get rid of the the excessive furniture.  Clear off the refrigerator..  Clear off the counter tops.  Make your home look open and free flowing.  Inviting. D is for dirty.  If your house has marks on the walls, dirty laundry lying all over.  Or smells it is going to make it much hard to sell.  You will have to lower your price to offset a smelly home, a dirty home.  So if you want more for your home spruce it up.

C is for Ceeing.  So I cheated a little on this one.  But turn your lights on when ever you show your home.     A Cheery home will sell.  A dark home won’t.  ( Back to the Ds)  Clean the windows, put in a little brighter bulb in areas that are dark, and make sure every light socket has a working bulb.

B is Being available.  So many times as a Metro Detroit real estate agent I can’t get my clients into homes when we need to see them.  We can’t get in because the sellers are busy or don’t want to be inconvenienced.  I have had clients buy a home that we added to the list at the last moment.  Homes that the sellers let us in when we saw  the house while driving thru the neighborhood.  So be available when the buyers want to see it.  You never know who the person is that is going to buy your house.

A is the grade you want.  A is for accepted offer.  Getting from F to A is really quite simple.  Listen to the advice your Novi real estate agent gives.  Or what you read on the internet, sellers tips such as Livonia real estate selling tips.  Or any articles on home selling advice is good.   Read and implement them.  So price your home right, de-clutter it, spruce it up, brighten it up by keeping the lights on, make your colors neutral, make your home available to all buyers and you will be on your way to getting an A.  Getting your Novi home sold isn’t really that tough


My favorite description of love is from Captain Corelli’s Mandolin:


“Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being “in love” which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two.”
-St. Augustine
