Sometimes, just like a show home, the property is well furnished, looks pristine and entices you in, and on the high-end properties, normally north of a million, a display of light finger foods and refreshments can sometimes be enjoyed, this is the occasion where a bottle of bubbly, if chosen correctly, can be the perfect assistant in helping to relax your potential buyers and help them feel more at home.
