How to sell a house, Wyatt's Way!!

My friend Mr. Pip, is trying to sell his house in Chi Town.
Here are a few helpful Wyatt tips, that will bring those buyers running and have them signing on the dotted line in no time!!

Right before perspective buyers are coming over for a look see, bake something yummy in the oven, like bread, cookies or something cinnamony!

People are emotional creatures and nothing says "Welcome Home" like the smell of baked goods.
(My Mom and Dad bought their first house, cuz the owner was baking bread!)

Put out a bouquet or two of fresh flowers.
A little staging never hurts...
(Mom and Dad bought their second house because it was staged so nicely...fresh flowers, baskets of fresh produce from the garden, music softly playing and a bottle of wine and glasses up by the bath tub!)
and finally...
Hang a cute picture of Mr. Pip on the wall!

You will have that house sold in no time!!


(Today's lesson...My Mom and Dad are suckers...BOL)


  1. Excellent suggestions Wyatt!

    BOL at your mom an dad.....I hopes they at least asked da prices when they got all carried away by da ambience of those houses!

  2. Haha! We are laughing so hard at the lesson of the day there at the end of your post!! :)

    Pip's house should be sold in no time flat!

  23. Wow! You could should do an advice column for those selling their homes...your words are wise and effective!

    Thanks for the kind words of welcome for my new brother, YoYo. He is getting to know his way around by himself and Uncle Adam put in a ramp on the deck especially for him...but we all think it is pretty cool.

  24. OK, hang picture on wall, drink bottle of wine and eat cookies ...I am taking notes! Keep the advice coming. We actually did bake cookies before a showing last Sunday. The people really liked the place (must have been the cookies), but turns out they are trying to sell a place, too! Too bad, we can't swap!

    Thank you so much! Mama and I are so overwhelmed and touched by all your wonderful wishes and posts!

    Your pal, Pip

  25. Wow I wish we knew this before we put our old house on the market. We would have sold it in a week.

  26. Great job, Wyatt!:)

  28. Fab tips. You're right. Flowers and baking smells send buyers into a frenzy! :D

    Waggin at ya,

  29. You're so clever, Wyatt!
    BOL, those tips are way too excellent!

  30. Very good advice! I also enjoyed your cheeky lesson of the day - it made me laugh.

  31. I've sold 6 houses in the past, and staging is crucial! Especially in a bad housing market. I baked cookies at the last house we sold in Colorado and they bought the house! I also packed up a LOT and stored it away in the garage. No clutter, limited "stuff" around.

  32. Wyatt you are the smartest dog-cookies, flowers and your smiling face will always bring joy.

  33. Hi Wyatt! Sam here from You have great ideas! Have you thought have becoming a professional stager?
    I love the cookies, are they beef or chicken?
