What Home Features Can Impact Your Listing's Value?

Sellers often ask me, “Why did my neighbor’s home sell for so much more than mine?” To tell the truth, the disparity in value comes down to a few key factors. Certain things, like a renovated kitchen, can cause homes to sell at a premium. And whether a home has these features can make or break how buyers view the property. To learn more about which features your home needs to sell at a premium, watch this short video.

When it comes to picking the right agent to help you list your home, you need to be asking some key questions to make sure they’re up for the job. Today, I have suggested list of 10 questions to do just that. These are not your typical questions—some of these will blow the agents away. They focus on how well they sell, as opposed to how many homes they sell, and should make choosing the right agent so much easier. To see the full list, view my latest blog post.

5 Spring Cleaning Tips for Spring Home Sellers

Spring is almost here, so today I want to share five spring cleaning tips if you plan on putting your home on the market soon. First, take a long look at your front porch. This is the area buyers will spend anywhere from 30 to 60 seconds standing on while their agent opens the lockbox, so it has to impress them. This might mean you need to buy new front-door hardware, light fixtures, or do some scrubbing and painting. To learn all my spring cleaning tips for when you’re ready to put your home on the market this spring, watch my latest video.

What Can Buyers and Sellers Expect at the Closing?

What happens at closing when you buy or sell a home? Buyers and sellers should have slightly different expectations going into this. If you’re a buyer, you should expect to sign far more documents than the seller. You should also make sure to bring your driver’s license and a checkbook just in case your lender’s numbers are a little off. To learn more about what you should expect at the closing, watch my latest video.
