First Impressions


Make Your First Impression Your Best Impression

You wouldn’t head to a job interview without making sure you looked great, so why would you put your home on the market looking any less than its best?

One of the biggest mistake home sellers make is failing to make sure their property makes a great first impression.

Three ways to spruce up for a sale:

  • Invest in fresh paint: It can turn your place from “that house with the orange bathroom” to a closed sale.
  • Clear the clutter: Let’s make sure your listing photos make your home look beautiful.
  • Fix, repair, replace: Little things add up so replace broken screens, repair gutters, install new toilet seats.

What’s Your Home Really Worth?




The Internet can do a lot of things -including give you an estimate on your home’s value. Plug in your address and click: You have an estimate.

But do you believe an online estimator actually gives you a true read on what your home’s really worth? Probably not.

The fact is the online estimator can’t see your upgrades or your incredible view, much less include them in the calculations.

If you want to know what your home is really worth, give me a call today. As your local agent, I can help you zero in on just the right asking price.

Spring Cleaning Tips


3 Easy Spring Cleaning Tips

Spring cleaning doesn’t have to be a time-consuming or costly affair. Want to tidy your home without being overwhelmed? These tips can help:

  • Designate and delegate. Give every member of the household a duty. Who said one person has to do all the work?
  • Tackle one room at a time. The job seems more manageable when you break it down into smaller chunks.
  • Don’t do it all at once. It’s okay to spread your spring cleaning out over a few weekends.
Before you start cleaning, you also might consider going through closets and storage areas for potential donations. Why clean items you don’t need or use?
