Home Selling Advice
Many homeowners are would like to sell their homes but are having competition from investor properties as well as other home sellers in their area. How do you compete when the competition gets tough?
Price it right. It's not enough to put a sign in the front yard and hope buyers will come. It's important to make sure your home is priced to sell. To attract today's buyer (even though it's considered a seller's market) you must have an aggressive strategy, pricing it just below market value.
Make the home irresistible. Believe it or not, you home is in a beauty contest. Some homes are considered investment properties, so price and cash are king. It would be challenging to compete against these properties, and these types of buyers aren't looking for move-in ready homes. But when you're competing against homes in your neighborhood that buyers who are taking out mortgages want, you need to take advantage of curb appeal, maintaining a clean and inviting place that buyers can't resist. If you want to sell your house fast this is something you can’t afford to ignore!
Don’t go it alone. Buyers today are quite savvy. They have Zillow, Realtor.com.... the list goes on! While “going it alone” may seem like the way to save, according to the numbers you’ll sell for more than if you sold "For Sale By Owner" in in less time and with few headaches by working with a Realtor®. Call me today to learn more! I can help.

Your Rent Is Due
Ever get tired of hearing that? Maybe you're renting because you want to, and if that's the case, that's great. However, if you'd really prefer owning a home of your own and stop paying the landlord's mortgage, I can help you do that.
Could your mortgage be less than what you're paying in rent? You may be throwing money away every month! Interest rates are still historically low and terms are good. There's no charge for this service, but I would ask that you only call if you are SERIOUS about owning a home. Get the information you need to get you on the pathway to owning the home of your dreams! Call me right away!
