This is the first time that I have reblogged, but this idea is simply wonderful. It is SO simple (well, maybe time consuming), but who does not have a Scrabble game lying around? Think of how much fun the children of the household would have doing this (just make sure they know the RULES). : ) Thanks Chris Ann for such a great idea!
House hunting is one of the part of my job I love best. Two weeks ago, some Buyer clients and I were in a particular neighborhood where it seemed every home was staged. No detail was overlooked. Pillows arranged on sofas and beds, just so. Towels immaculate in their alignment in each bathroom. Tables set for imaginary meals. House hunting was made all the more pleasant by the attention to detail of each and every home owner.
When we hit the basement of one of these staged beauties there on a card table was a Scrabble board, set up to look like a game in progress. Getting closer to the board, we noticed that the board had cute messages about the house. Things like:
GREAT NEIGHBORS, LARGE CLOSETS, UPGRADED KITCHEN & HAPPY FAMILY LIVES HERE
This idea was just too neat to not share. So if you are a home owner attempting to sell, and there's something about your home you'd like to share when buyers are passing through, get out that Scrabble board and stage it.
