Buy an answering machine that has caller id so that you can capture the name and phone number of potential buyers. The message should tell the caller to leave their contact information so that you can get back to them at the earliest possible moment with complete details on the property. If you have your home on the internet, you may also give them the URL while their awaiting your return call. This website can also be listed on your FSBO sign.
2. Just Do It. Once you were able to identify some possible flaws, it’s time for action. House staging means your next steps might be: fix the broken shutter, paint the front door, and if it’s the season, get everyone in the household involved to weed the front garden. If spring is in the air, a fresh batch of annuals bursting with color is the perfect, inexpensive upgrade for any front yard.
It is possible to save a good amount of money by purchasing quality, used woodworking tools instead of only buying new tools and this is true whether you are a new or experienced woodworker.
You can also buy from auctions or even online. However, be sure to ascertain the quality of the goods before you commit and check whether they offer any sort of return policy if required.
Most reconditioned tools seem to be hand tools and of most every kind. They might include drills, drivers, saws, including both circular saws and reciprocating saws, compressors, nailers, sanders and more. The newer cordless tools are very popular. The larger floor mounted tools, such as table saws and large shop air compressors are rarely seen. I would not expect that a customer would take a larger tool home and then quickly return it.
You will need to go through the same steps and marketing techiques that any real estate agent would use. Here’s the techniques I would recommend:
Another one of my favourite woodworking tools would be my biscuit joiner, I can just about join anything together with it. It’s great for joining miter’s because when it comes to the glueing and clamping process, I can get a neat and flush join because of an angle adjustable stop.
Always ensure you are buying from a reputable source that you know and trust. It may also be worth buying from a reputable store in your area who has a reputation for supplying only quality tools and equipment and will give some form of back up service for you after the sale.
My favourite hand tool would be my block plane, it’s a small version of the no.4 hand plane that fits in the palm of your hand. It comes in handy for little jobs like arrissing timber mouldings and easily stores in the top tray of my tool box.
