Your Home Wants to Look Good for Open House

I'm not in the habit of putting letters in this blog, but this one received by a colleague of mine caught my attention. I wanted to share it in light of it being Open House Month at CENTURY 21 across Canada.

Dear Owner:

I've noticed you always like to put your best face forward when you're meeting folks. I've been holding up your toiletries in that bedroom-suite bathroom for years now, so I know exactly what's goes into getting that best face made!

What about me? What about my best face? I overheard you talking about holding an Open House. OK, I'm resigned now to the fact that you're leaving me - probably for a younger, pretty home - but please, don't humiliate me....

Don't show me off at an Open House without making me up. I want a new coat of paint, and a bunch of other cosmetic touches, thank you very much.

And it's not like you aren't going to get anything out of it - beside a better asking price for me, of course. Right now you can get two times the AIR MILES reward miles when you buy $60 or more worth of all kinds of pretty-up stuff from RONA stores. And you can earn 15 AIR MILES bonus reward miles with the purchase of each 3.78-litre container of RONA interior latex or alkyd paint.

Just thinking about how good I'll look in a new coat of paint is giving my walls goosebumps... wait until they subside before you start stroking on all that glorious new colour, please.

Oh, and not that I owe you any favours, but since you're selling me anyway, did you know that you can earn more AIR MILES reward miles three different ways with CENTURY 21 Canada?
