Building and Staging

As a Realtor, I am in and out of homes all day every day.  I have several observations that I want to share with you. 

When you are listing your home make certain first and foremost that it is clean.  I require that all my listings have their homes professionally cleaned and it makes all the difference in the world.  Next, I assist my clients with the process of staging the home.  In the gallery, you can view some of my staged homes.  I find it fundumentally important to not strip homes of their personalities.

To inspect or not inspect that is the question?

Need help finding someone that is a service provider (wood rot, wood destroying insects, painting, plumbing, HVAC, Electrical, General contractor ect.)  Please contact me, I can help you find a professional that fits your needs.  

Often, I recommend that my clients have their home pre-inspected before listing it but not always.   If you are thinking about listing your home I would love to chat with you concerning whether you want to have a pre-inspection and what the benefits are and aren't.  Just give me a call and we can go out for a cup of coffee on me.

Have you ever had a discussion with a client only to turn on your computer and have an article on the exact topic show up on your news feed?  It's kinda scary in a way.  This is precisely what happened today.  

I was discussing with a client the fact that they must  be mindful of the changes they are in the process of making. It is important to make upgrades that are cost effective and benefit the seller.  

There are some wonderful ideas in this article.
