Yes and it is the best feeling to have a home ready to go. Even when the home is ready though, i prepare the seller to be ready for showings, offers and what to expect. I have listed a home at 6pm, got the pictures first thing on Saturday morning and had it entered by 11am. By 6pm that night 3 offers and a seller signed contract, the true meaning to sold in a day. The best was how many of their neighbors this seller told how good i was. I get referrals year after year.

Amelia - Sounds like you have a great listing, and hopefully it will sell fast.

I have had some listings where the home was in pretty good shape, and nicely decorated as well. Not sure I ever had a home that was perfect, but pretty darn close.
