It's a lot easier to a home than to sell a house! When preparing your home for prospective buyers, use some subtle showmanship to help set the right atmosphere. Give your home a restful, happy, inviting look.  For evening showings, brighten your home from the front door light on through all the rooms in the house. Little decorating touches -a vase of flowers, a plant, small pillows- can add much to the comfortable feeling of a home. If you are having your home shown in the winter, a crackling fire in the fireplace adds irresistible attraction. A working fireplace is a major attraction to home buyers. A large mirror can make a room look larger. Properly place, it can reflect and magnify many of your best selling points. Definitely turn off the TV and turn on soft background music on the hi-fi to create that subtle - lived in atmosphere. Your prospects are buying more than a house - they are buying a new way of life.
