Don’t Use Your Fridge as a Bulletin Board When Selling a Home


You love little Jane’s cute drawing she drew in Kindergarten class today and hang it proudly on your refrigerator, but now that you’re Selling your home you’ll need to pack it away safely.


Make sure your Refrigerator’s exterior is shiny, bright and not being used as a bulletin board.
