October 2016

From REALTORmag, Oct 2016 issue: What colors and materials are hot in kitchen countertops, backsplashes, and appliances? To find out, the National Association of Home Builders culled the data from its own surveys as well as from Houzz, a remodeling website, and the Home Innovation Research Labs’ 2016 Builder Practices Survey, a survey of more

School is Near!

School is Near!

This summer has been flying by, not unlike the others in the past, but with all my kids driving now, I can’t keep track of who is where! July always brings the new school supplies advertising out in full force. I loved shopping for back to school supplies! It wasn’t as fun when they went

Agent Advantage: Part 3

This blog is my third of three reasons on why you should use an agent (me) to sell your home. If you recall, my first blog on this topic was safety. This month I want to finish the series with: pricing your home, commissions, inspections and appraisals. Pricing your home: This is a very important

Agent Advantage: Part 1

This month and the next, I wanted to focus on the “For Sale by Owner” seller. I used to think that it made a lot of sense and it would save a ton of money to sell my own house too! So I understand how important it is to save money and want to do

September 2015

Before I put a house on the market, but after I meet the sellers, I set up an appointment with a professional stager who helps get the house “market ready”. It is a service that I offer to my clients to help them ease into the moving and packing experience. It is never meant to

August 2015

I may be not be the greatest mother. No “World’s Best Mom” award was given to me by my kids. Not even a “Participation Award” by default. Why? Well besides the obvious to those that know my family…the most anticipated day for me when the kids were little was THE FIRST DAY of SCHOOL! Whoo

July 2015

Several agents that I know have encountered appraisals that were so stunningly low, that the purchase contact fell off and died. This can be the number one death of a contract- not the price, not the closing date, not the people-the appraisals. That is why it is so important to price your home just right.
