Thinking of Selling?
So, you have decided to sell your property. Before anything else, it is a good idea
to sit down and clarify your motivations and draw up a basic time frame for the
Why do you want to sell your property? Do you intend to simply find a larger
property, or do you plan on moving to another neighborhood, school district, city,
or county? You might think your reasons are obvious, but it would do well to
consider the implications of each option for your lifestyle, opportunities, and
finances. Being clear about your intentions for selling will make it easier for me
to determine the most appropriate option for your specified financial, lifestyle, and
real estate goals.
The old adage, “You can’t judge a book by its cover” is passé today. This is a fast-
paced, image-oriented society in which we live. First impressions really do count!
Every piece of information on your property, whether it be a brochure, the wording
in the Multiple Listing Service, a presence on the Internet, or a well-placed
advertisement must show your home in the best possible light.
During all phases of a listing from the initial paperwork and promotion through the
very last details of the closing, I personally attend to all the details. As a result, the
large majority of my transactions come through referrals and repeat business.
