Essay Question:

In under 1000 words, please answer the following question:

"For people trying to sell their house, would you recommend that they paint their house before putting it up for sale? and Why?"

Every essay must follow basic rules of format and grammar. Every paper must contain a beginning (introductory paragraph), a middle (several supporting paragraphs that comprise the body of the paper), and an end (concluding paragraph). Grammar is vital for essay composition. Sentence fragments, misspellings, and improper punctuation denote a carelessly written and poorly-conceived paper. Lastly, if you are going to quote a source word for word, please ensure you cite your source using MLA or APA formatting.
