On & Off The Market in Five Days
So we put our condo on the market and received a cash offer fives days later. This was in the winter when the market was frozen – see what I did there?
Every showing, we received the same response, “It really shows well.” This remark was attributed to how clean, well kept and well staged our place was. But I honestly think it had to do with one thing – fire.
My favorite thing to do, about 30 minutes before people arrive, is to light candles. This allows just enough time for the sensational scents to fill the rooms. I still do this now. The space is instantly transformed. The candles go from simply being decor to being demonstrative.
Close your eyes and remember an unforgettable place. If you cannot think of a place, maybe there is a person who is unforgettable. Whether a place or a person, I am pretty sure there are specific attributes that you can list that make them unforgettable.
While strolling through the park, a whiff of an aroma can instantly cause you to remember your grandparent’s house. Or maybe you flashback to someone’s perfume or cologne. Some things cause certain people to stand out.
Like candles, we can either be simply decor or demonstrative. We can simply be present or be a presence. The places and people you remember were or are a presence in your life. I encourage you to be a presence. Be memorable. Make a lasting impression on those you come in contact with.
In the same way, let your light shine so others can see it. Then they will see the good things you do. And they will bring glory to your Father who is in heaven. Matthew 5:16
