Selling: A Step by Step Guide


Whether you’re planning to downsize, trade up or relocate out of the area, when you choose to work with me, I realize that you are entrusting me to list and sell one of your most valuable assets.

Selling your property is a big decision. What determines how much you will get from your home will be a function of the Housing Market, the Condition of your house and the Agent you partner with. How your home is priced, how it shows and how it’s marketed makes all the difference, so it’s important to work with an agent you can trust to get the job done perfectly.

With me as your agent, you're not just getting a professional who uses the best tools and technology to sell your property for the maximum return on your investment, in the least amount of time, with the least amount of stress to you. You're getting transparency and instant communication throughout the entire process, so you can relax knowing every detail is taken care of.

Preparing Your Home -The Importance of Staging, Upgrades and Repairs


Studies show that making your home as welcoming and neutral as possible creates optimal conditions for a Buyer to “mentally move-in.” In today’s competitive market, the small house details (lighting, hardware, paint, landscaping, etc.) can make a house really stand out, resulting in fewer days on market, attracting more buyers, and greater return on value.

It is highly recommended that you have a home inspection right away to identify and address problems before the house goes on the market. Cleaning, painting, remodeling, repairs, improvements, and staging can help eliminate buyer objections before they arise as well as help buyers visualize the maximum functionality and appeal of your property.
