In fact, this is the perfect thread to impart some of my techniques -
1. Yard professionally done, bushes out front are in tatters but kept, front door though no sidelights, has been redone with a huge bit of molding. You ring the bell, wipe your feet and step in... "nice place" you say... done up in designer fashions, loads of pictures, perfect setting with small pillows on the couch, personality?
Trying to keep up with the jonses, price is the bottom line, prolly has a nice mercedes out front too.
2. Yard half kept, modest door. You ring the bell and wipe your feet... "nice place" you say... angels or something adorn the place, halfway messy but clean. Fat pillows on the couch. Personality?
Artist, prolly the jonses, wants quality most.
3. Yard pro done, nothing out of place, door is clean, windows clean. You ring the bell, wipe your feet and enter... "nice place" you say.... mostly spartan, few pictures but very tasteful, peices of art about like say...african spears and masks. Personality?
How quick can you get it done? Money is no object.
4. Yard fairly done but not pro, door is normal. You ring the bell, wipe your feet and enter..."nice place" you say... kid stuff about, fluffy pillows on the couch, dvds on the table, modest decor... prolly a truck outside. Personality?
Working class... willing to pay but is shopping for the best mix of person willing to give him both quality and price in his opinion.
Read your subject just like you read the project... each are different, each have thier own problems. Not everything is as it seems from the street.
