The Buying & Selling Experience
The Buying Experience
Carefully craft your wish list and try to stick to it. If you are shopping with your partner, discuss your must-haves and deal breakers together so you’ll be on the same page during your house hunt.
Don’t see too many houses in one day. You may begin to feel overwhelmed and confused after touring several homes. Too many homes in a short period of time will run together in your mind and you won’t recall which kitchen or which master bedroom belonged to which house.
Stay within your price range and consider added expenses such as taxes, homeowner’s association fees, maintenance etc.
Knowing when you’re trying to be in your new home is helpful in negotiation.
85% Rule: There is no perfect home, but if you can find 85% of your must-haves, we are able to efficiently locate the right house for you.
Financing or Proof of Funds
Making an offer with a pre-approval letter or proof of funds is necessary to be considered by the sellers.
The Selling Experience
Selling your home has much more involved than simply setting up a For Sale sign in the front yard. It takes sales and negotiation skills, a strong network of contacts of home buyers, other Realtors, and a comprehensive marketing strategy to position your home above all the other homes currently for sale.
Where to Start

While everyone has clutter, buyers want to see a fantasy version of your house, in which they can envision living. Once your home is on the market you’ll need to keep it as neat as possible.
Improve Your Home
Try things such as replacing the caulk and grout in your bathroom, updating old or rusted ceiling fans and light fixtures, and changing switch plates, doorknobs and other hardware for a clean and neat appearance.
