If you are going to hire a realtor (and I really recommend it for several reasons) he/she will see your house also into a state of Mess seeing the potential of the house but believe me he/she will suggest you to do little changes that will became SIGNIFICANT into sale process:
DECLUTTER: If you ever watched one episode of million Dollar property, you probably noticed that houses are always clean and with few items that capture attention, not a series of stupid stuff that makes hard also to walk between rooms....so first thing is to prepare rooms, eliminating stuff you are not going to keep choosing what donate/eliminate/sell and believe me this …

LUXURY & FASHION

During weekend I've spent time writing and free time with friends and reading fashion magazines and I must to say I felt in love with several items that are a little bit too expensive for my pockets and honeslty if I'd pay €4500 for a bag I'd be scared to ruin it and I'd keept Itinto closet, so It could be a waste of money..... However most people can permit and buy only thatkind of items so I did a little selection of Luxury items...yes we are really OUT from my normal tiny budget....
Fendi bag €2700
Alexander McQueen Dress €2495
Renè Caovilla shoes €1134+1836Swarovski jewels  €599+699+1795

I tried to imagine to do shopping for a very nice event, so is essential that dress can be used during cold and warm months, changing accessories but when you use your calculator and result is €11.258(without considering price for coat) I can really say other great view to spend this amount of money: deposit for house, a new car, several holidays, because believe me you can find simila…

MY MONEY WEEKLY CHECK UP

This past week is been busy as usual but I had time to have my weekly real date with friends and I've found an extra side hustle that I love because It permits me to combine 2 of my passions: writing and real estate,..
I've met my friend Samantha in the cafe into commercial center tat is halfway from our houses, every time we do a stop into H&M shop and I must to say I've bought some tshirts that are good under blazer and when temperature are warmer you can wear them alone with jeans or skirt...there is also another niche fahsion shop that is Combipel but prices are not so cheap, but I must to say that their size are real and if you are a curvy like me that wear 10-12 you will find your size, while in other famous brand shop you feel obese also wearing XXXL and believe for a woman isn't a good sensation!!!
During coffee date I was talking with my friend because 2017 for me is already busy with several invites for weddings, baptism, gradution so I'm slowly buildin…

HOUSE HUNTING: ONE OFFER PER TIME

Last time I explained why is better to make an offer per time and I wanted to talk about tips how to present a house better but after a while a couple of friends that are undeceided asked me if they can make two offer at the same time with two realtor and two different homes...ABSOLUTELY NO...so I tried to explain better the resaon, but if in the end you are going to waste your money I will send you my IBAN so I can say money will be well invested:P
You found two homes, you need to calculate pros and cons and if list is equal you need to take at least two days to think about every solution and only then take a decision and MAKE ONLY ONE OFFER...Why?
I try to explain better is possible:
you found 2 homes with 2 different realtors, so you are going to make 2 offers thinking tha tif you fail one you have the other, well story is a little bit different because every offer must to have a check attached (deposit that usually is 10-20% of your offer). So try to imagine this scenario: you make o…
