Okay, here is a real tip. It is simply insane to put a house on the market while entertaining grandchildren.
I know this from experience.
In truth, I thought I was just getting advice about how to go about selling--but my slow processing speed and a high-powered, super aggressive real estate agent left me with head spinning.
They did manage to take pictures that look like the house was not overrun with a real life Peanut's PigPen.
One of the consequences of this happy, wide-angle picture taking was that I could not find my answering machine. That is a whole 'nother story!
