It won’t really work with an entire home that needs fix-up.

But when there’s a lone, seasonal repair that’s waiting (and waiting) for warmer weather, telling prospective Buyers that the fix is “Coming Soon!” is a terrific idea.

I just saw a $1 million Edina home where just such a sign was prominently displayed on the rather rough-looking deck — and blunted what would have otherwise have been some harsher comments.
