Thinking of selling your home but not sure if now is the “right time?” Talk to me for sound advice on when to sell your home in the least amount of time for the best possible price. First I will help you examine your reasons for wanting to sell. The most common reasons why people decide to sell their homes include changes to their financial status, an employment transfer, a growing family or retirement. Today’s low interest rates have also made it attractive for many homeowners to “move up” to a larger home. Whatever your reason, selling a house is a complicated procedure so it’s imperative to have a qualified real estate professional on your side. Because selling a home involves large sums of money and complicated legal documents, my expertise can help a homeowner avoid costly mistakes...

In trying to  find the right neighborhood, consider the immediate homes around the particular property you want to buy. Are they well maintained and worth the same or more than the home you are considering? Is the location a quiet area or a major traffic thoroughfare? What kind of privacy does the backyard provide? Does it get the morning or afternoon sun? If there is no house behind you, who owns the property and how will it be developed? Homes located further away from the center of an urban area are generally cheaper. Are you prepared to invest the time and money it takes to commute and how long of a commute are you prepared to commit to? Is there public transit and good access to major highways nearby? If you have kids in school, what kinds of schools and services are available? Wil...

When buying a home, the neighborhood you select will not only play a pivotal role in your family’s life, but in the resale value of the property. One person’s ideal neighborhood however may vary greatly from another’s. But, regardless, there are some needs and wants that generally do not change. The distance from your new home to schools, churches and shopping, for example, will not only affect how you and your family settle into your new home, it will also draw or turn off a perspective buyer. A good first step is to enlist the services of a REALTOR who works in the area you are thinking of moving. REALTORS are very familiar with the communities in which they work and can answer many of the questions you will develop during your search.

Things can seem overwhelming when staging your own home.  Here are some tips to help: Don’t underestimate the importance of the layout of furniture in each room. Yes, it’s a chore, but it really is worth it. In addition to preparation of the house itself, gather together a portfolio of paperwork that any serious potential buyer may very well want to see. Gas, electricity bills etc., plus any guarantees for damp proofing or other remedial work that has been undertaken.
