I have some late-breaking news for you today about a special piece of real estate. I'm not sure if you have heard yet, but the house from the Windows 95 Maze Screensaver is now up for sale, and I wanted you to hear it from me. 

The news was first reported by ClickHole, and from the looks of things, this 12,000 square foot property will go quick. It doesn't have a great spacial concept, but there is plenty of room for dozens of bedrooms, kitchens, studies, and whatever else you can think of. 

Everything from the screensaver is included in the home, that includes the beautiful brick walls, and the original limestone floor moldings are still there and in perfect condition. 

The seller really wants to get this home off their hands, and you could be the first to make an offer. If you have any questions about this property, feel free to give me a call or send me an email anytime. I would love to get you into this huge, beautiful space!

Today I am here to give you 5 great tips on what to do if you are thinking about putting your home on the market. These tips will help protect your interests and get you the most amount of money possible for your home.  Without further ado, here they are:

1. Become a real seller
When you decide to sell your home, you have to detach yourself emotionally from the property. It's no longer a home filled with memories and nostalgia, but an asset in a business transaction that you are trying to sell. Those memories will always be with you, but letting go of your home emotionally is the step you need to take.

2. Depersonalize your home
Removing photos, family heirlooms, and memorabilia is important in creating a neutral feel in your home. You want buyers to picture themselves living in your home, and making your house look like a show-home will help them do just that.

3. First impressions make lasting impressions
This is why your home's curb appeal is so important. Refinish that front door, get your lawn done professionally, and make sure the outside of your home looks just as good as the inside.

4. Be ready to show your home at any time
When selling, you've got to be able to be flexible when it comes to showing your home. Yes, it's a pain and a hassle, but if you really want to sell, you want to make sure you do everything in your power to accommodate potential buyers.

5. Find the right agent
In my opinion, this is the most important step. If you are watching this video, you have already found the right agent. However, you want to make sure you do your due diligence in researching your best choice. I believe that the answers to 2 questions will tell you all you need to know about an agent. The questions are, "What is my home's true value?" and "How much are you going to spend on marketing for my home?" You want somebody who is able to give you that true value without being dishonest, and somebody who takes marketing seriously and knows how important it is in selling your home. 

There you have it, our 5 best home selling tips. If there is anything else I can do for you, be sure to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to talking to you soon!
