Watermelon-A look inside

It is another beautiful day.  The sun is bright, its warm our kids finished school so yes–it is officially Summer!!! One of my favorite sumer delights is Watermelon.  Watermelon is that fruit that is fun, messy and good for you.  But, often, you can’t tell a good watermelon by the outside.   In my house, we were taught to tap the outside and listen for a hollow sound.  If the sound is hollow, then the melon is sweeter.

It is not a one hundred percent, but I have had pretty good luck with it.  As a realtor, it can be the same thing.  Homes can be a bit a surprise from the outside.  I have listed and shown homes that from the outside we were wowed–but then once inside we were much less than impressed.  Conversely, I have walked into a plain home to find the inside exquisitely decorated and amazingly beautiful.

When buying or selling a home, it is important to take the time to look inside and out to make sure it is a fit.  Many homes need minor updating and cosmetic changes. If one can see past  the minor changes, they will see extraordinary value.  Conversely, as a seller, if you can take an average home and with minor improvements make it a palace, you will greatly improve its chances to sell at the best price possible.

Lastly, obtaining a home inspector is a great way to assure you are receiving a value.  Their expertise and knowledge will help to avoid any unwanted surprises.  As you are enjoying your summer and the summer real estate market,  pick your home wisely and make sure it is as “Sweet” on the inside as it is lovely on the outside!

Happy Hunting
