5 Rules For A Successful Open House

June 25, 2014
If you’re reading about having an open house, there’s a good chance that you’re thinking about putting your home on the market — that is, if you haven’t done so already. When you start working with a REALTOR® and are looking to get a property sold, the agent is most likely going to hold one, if not more, open houses to showcase your home to potential buyers. The work doesn’t stop there, though. You’re part of the sales team now and you should never think that just because it’s a seller’s market, you can slack off on the details and it will still be a success.

4 Home Improvements That Are Worth The Investment

June 18, 2014
Experts squabble all the time about whether a seller should make home improvements first or sell it and let the new buyer make their own improvements.

They are going to want it the way they like it and not necessarily flock to your style as quickly as they would a blank canvas. This doesn’t mean that there aren’t things that you can do to bump up the value of your home. We’ve taken the liberty of listing a few for you.

June 11, 2014
Making enormous home improvements before putting your home on the market may not always be the best bet. With the rising popularity of networks like HGTV, there are certain buyers may want to make the renovations themselves. Whether they have varying degrees of taste or the know-how to get it done themselves — you wouldn’t want something like extra work to cost you the sale, would you? That, however, doesn’t mean there aren’t exceptions to that rule. You don’t necessarily have to completely gut your old, out-of-touch rooms — but there are quick things that you can have done that will boost the final selling price of your home.
