Home Sellers - 3 things to do Before the sign goes up!
1. Make sure everything fuctions correctly. Nothing says a house may have costly hidden repairs, like a simple to fix closet door falling off in the buyer's hand, or when the Agent can't get the front door to unlock!
2. Put as much of your belongings in storage. A overflowing closet, an overloaded kitchen table or walking around a stack of belongings on the floor, says to buyers you are having a hard time finding space in your house... they may also wonder if it is big enough for them!
3. Curb Appeal sells homes! Make sure the landscaping looks as good as possible, uncut grass is begging for a "low ball" offer! Check for peeling paint, broken fences, cobwebs around the inside or outside and most importantly take your family pet with you... nothing harder for a buyer trying to envision buying this "new home", while the family dog sounds like he wants to tear your foot off!
Many times a Buyer can be "turned off" from buying a home resulting from a issue that could be corrected for little or no money being spent. Don't let the Best offers pass you over. I would be glad to help you identify items you should correct, and even those items the are best left alone. I am available until 8 pm tonight!

Home Buyers, 3 Things you need to get the Best Deal!
1. Good Market Knowledge - you must recognize a great deal when you see it. Understanding the market will help you make the best offer without loosing it to another buyer.
2. Available Agent - You need to see homes as quickly as your schedule allows, you shouldn't have to wait for your Agent. Scheduling showing during the week, even if it's after work, will give you an advantage over buyers who won't see the new listing until the weekend.
3. Approved Credit - Knowing the amount of loan you qualify for will keep you from looking at homes beyond your reach. Submitting a Pre Approval Letter from your lender, tells the seller you are not only willing, but you are able.
I can help you find the right house at the best price. I search the listed homes several time a day looking to keep my clients informed in the ever changing market. I am available until 8 pm most evenings and would be glad to schedule show for you on the weekend. Give me a call and let me know what you are looking for... let me get to work on it!
