Important Real Estate Tips


Be prepared. Are you really ready to buy? Timing and financing are key to home buys right now. Be prepared to move when a desirable home comes onto the market.

Get pre-qualified. Work with a local mortgage broker early in the process so that you are ready to make an offer and purchase when the opportunity arises. Telling the seller that you are pre-qualified can help when encountering bidding wars.

Know your budget. The pre-qualification will also help determine your budget. This helps maximize your time with me so that we don’t look at properties outside the budget or negotiating reason.

Learn the neighborhoods. Take time driving around the neighborhoods within your desired location. We can concentrate on your top five neighborhoods and I can begin grassroots marketing when needed to help you secure your number one location. Also, get to know service providers and schools assigned to that neighborhood.


Learn about comps. Your listing price is key to a quick and successful sell, and I want to make sure you achieve a 96% or higher (list to sell price). I’ll review your neighborhood comps with you and together we’ll price your home appropriately.

Know your bottom line. Many home sells result to negotiations, and it’s important that I know about your bottom figure so that I help make the right recommendations. I’ll do everything in my power to achieve the most possible.

Make necessary investments. If you are aware of breaks, leaks, cosmetic and other small damages to the home, it can be less costly to fix them before listing the home. This will help the home show better and fewer items will show up during the home inspection (which means less bargaining chips for the buyer).

Stage adequately. This is where I can help you immensely. Because I am also an interior decorator, I know how to properly set up your home so that it’s pleasing to the buyer’s eyes. From small decorating items like pillows and throws, to setting the ambience with candles, lights, music and fans, we’ll make sure your home is 100% desirable.

Start Your Home Search or Sell Your Home
