Why Hire a Real Estate Agent?
Studies show that sellers who use a real estate agent generally get a better price because I can give you up-to-date information on the price, financing, terms and condition of competing properties. Also, it’s my job to stay up to date on the latest market trends and fluctuations. Utilizing an agent means no surprises during the selling process, as you will have latest information at critical junctures in the process. Let me put my experience to work for you to ensure you get the best price for your home!

Before Your Home is Listed
Prior to listing your home, you’ll want to ensure everything is in good showing condition before buyers start to tour the home. Here are some important things to consider:

• Start Packing
Now is the time to put things in storage, clean out the garage and start preparing to show your home.

• Depersonalize
Remove any family photos and personal items. Remember, you want buyers to see themselves in your home! Store valuables in your safe or to a safe space away from your home.

• Spot Paint or Repaint Walls
Touch up both interior and exterior paint or consider repainting any rooms that could be a turnoff to a neutral tone.

• Update Carpet
Clean or replace carpet in areas with heavy wear.

• Extra Cleaning
Keep the interior and exterior clean and odor free. Also, keep everything tidy for a last-minute tour. Take special care of the bathroom tile, counters, shower and floor.

• Curb Appeal
Buyers judge a book by its cover, so trim any overgrown bushes, mow the lawn and keep it free of leaves, bikes and toys. Make sure the front of the home is clean and appealing. You want to make a strong first impression!

• Professional Staging
Consider hiring a professional stager to help give buyers the appeal they’re looking for. This is a service I can arrange for you for an additional charge.

Why Home Staging Is Important

Did you know that home staging takes place after you’ve cleaned, decluttered, painted, and made minor repairs? It’s about making your home look bigger, brighter, cleaner, warmer, and depersonalized so the buyer can envision the house as theirs.

Home staging can pay off for sellers to get their house sold faster and for more money. Staging can be on a large scale or small scale, depending on your budget.
