Helping You Sell Your Property in Today's Market

Why Do I Need a Real Estate Agent?

This is a question I hear from people trying to sell their homes often. Studies show that homeowners who use a real estate agent generally get a better price than those who sell their home themselves. That is because as real estate agents we have acquired the experience and tools needed to not only evaluate your home's value in the ever-changing market, but also market your home to its fullest potential. This will help in having your home sell at the best price possible and in the right time frame for you.

Another very important reason to have a real estate agent represent you in the sale of your home: peace of mind. We continually take real estate courses, keeping up to date on all the critical changes, thus keeping the sale of your home within the guidelines necessary so as not to have problems that may prolong or prevent your sale.

Working with a real estate agent also adds objectivity to the inherently emotional transaction that often comes when selling your home.

Before Your Home Is Listed

It's important to have your home in the best showing condition possible before putting it on the market. Here are a few helpful suggestions.

  • Spot Paint

    Touch up interior and exterior paint as needed

  • Update Carpet

    If carpets are stained or soiled, have them cleaned; if extremely worn, consider replacing

  • Curb Appeal

    Make sure the front is clean and spruced up; curb appeal will create a favorable first impression

  • Trim and Rake

    Trim bushes and plants as needed, and make sure the lawn is kept mowed and trimmed. In autumn, rake the leaves; in winter, keep the snow shoveled.

  • Clean and Minimize

    Keep interior clean and uncluttered. Minimize personal items and family photos. While it is important for your home to reflect you when selling, too much tends to make it difficult for the prospective buyer to envision your home as theirs

  • Start Packing

    Consider putting excess furniture and belongings in storage. Now's the time to clean out the garage and basement; donate or dispose of items that you will no longer need.
