While selling my last home, I was preparing for the first Open House. I ran a newspaper classified ad. The house was cleaned spotless. I went to Home Depot to buy the directional signs, light bulbs and air fresheners. I returned to the house, walked in the door and to my shock... my husband had the Master Bathroom torn completely apart! Dust, dirt and pieces of water-damaged floor tile were everywhere! He said he felt the house would not sell with those old floor tiles and didn't realize the floor underneath was damaged. He said he would have the bathroom back together in a couple of days...
The Open House continued as planned because I had advertised it in the paper. One woman who actually liked the home, froze solid in disgust when we reached the master bathroom and there was hubby sitting on the floor prying up the toilet. She practically ran out of the house!
He did manage to finish the bathroom in about a week and it did look beautiful afterwards, but the timing was really bad and could have cost a serious buyer.
