  • Buyers – don’t be discouraged, a fresh batch of spring inventory hits the market each week. Now’s the time to talk to your lender and get pre-qualified. This step is crucial as Sellers want a pre-qual letter WITH your offer. I can help you be more successful in winning that bid for your perfect home if we present a strong, clean offer accompanied with a preferred, local lender’s letter.

  • Sellers – buyers are looking for homes like yours, if you’re thinking about selling THIS is the time to put your home on the market. Inventory is low and home values have increased. Fewer homes on the market means less competition and the opportunity to sell quickly.

Not sure what your home is worth? I’d be happy to offer you a thorough analysis of your home’s value. I look at more than just neighborhood comps for the last 6 months. I’m also checking the location within a master-planned community like Briargate, lot sizes, home improvements and mechanical updates (or lack of), age, condition and curb appeal.

And, as part of listing with Front Porch Team Real Estate & Property Styling, I offer ALL my sellers comprehensive staging services (including some pretty cool inventory) that encourages a top offer, fast. Not sure staging makes much of a difference? Take a look at this BEFORE & AFTER of a recent listing that received a cash offer hours after we put it online:
