Real Advice for Buying or Selling your Home


Since the best properties sell quickly, it is of great importance that you position yourself to have the “Best Chance” to get your offer accepted. You enhance your chance of getting the home of your choice by doing the following:

Get pre-approved for the purchase. This takes very little time and is of great value. At this time, identify the price range for which you qualify and which fits your lifestyle.

Submit a smart offer. Your agent will help you place an offer that is just right. Not so low that you lose the property, not so high that you overpay.

Minimize or eliminate contingencies. The fewer contingencies, the stronger the offer.

Be prepared to view a new property quickly. Homes sell sometimes in hours. Be prepared to make decisions quickly and be accessible to change the terms instantly.

Be available. Let us maintain instant access to each other via office phone, voice mail, fax, pager or cellular phone.


Here are some great ideas to get your home ready for sale – these will help ensure you get the best value for your home:

Put your home in tip-top condition . Pay special attention to the landscaping and front exterior. Trim back trees and shrubs that block windows, plant colorful flowers in the front, and paint the exterior and trim, if needed. Pay special attention to the front door, front windows and garage door. Be sure that the front yard is cut and trim.

Get rid of clutter. Builders set up a model home with just enough furniture to make the rooms appealing. Objectively evaluate your own home. Remove large-scale furniture when possible
