Self-Isolation Story II

Beverly-Ann Woods and Michael Bennett, stop while out for a drive during the initial self-isolation period of Covid-19

Michael Bennett and his partner Beverly-Ann Woods started recording their thoughts, and adventures during the self-isolation period of Covid-19. What started as a way to stay connected, yet physically distant with friends turned into a regular fun and upbeat video series.

What to do during the Covid-19 Self-Isolation Period

Take a look at your home from a buyer’s perspective.

Well, you are stuck at home, and solitaire gets boring after a while.  One of my suggestions is that you take the self-isolation time to start thinking about how a potential buyer would view your home?  Even if you aren’t planning on selling today, tomorrow or as one client puts it… “that’s for my trustees to worry about”  It’s a good perspective to take as you purge and evaluate your home?  

There had been a lot of social media banter on what to do during the Covid-19 Self-Isolation period. Taking the time to give your home a deep clean will have lasting benefits, and of course, free up more time for social activities when this is over.

Go out to the street…. look at your house?  Compare it to houses you’ve driven past that you liked.  Is there something simple you can do during this break to improve the “curb-appeal?

Next, pretend you are me, showing a prospective buyer, your home.  Walk in the front door, turn on the light and look around.  Is it clean, tidy, and inviting?   After all, this is the first impression of your home.

Take this same approach room by room, along with doing that deep clean you’ve wanted to do for a while anyway, and soon your home will feel like a model home.  

Please don’t do too good of a job, I don’t want you to love your current home and decide you are staying until the 50th anniversary of the Covid-19 Pandemic.

When the dust settles, and we look back on this chapter in our lives, I hope we look at it with a sense of, that wasn’t so bad. Either way, give me a call, I’d love to see how your cleaning and purging worked out.
