If you're like me and have a long list of goals to accomplish in 2018(see mine here), you want to make the sale of your home as smooth as possible, while also making all the profit you possible can. We all know that when we're in a rush, things can go downhill really quickly. So, let's get you organized ahead of the pack, so you can blow the spring market away!
PREPPING FOR SALE:
1) DOES YOUR HOME NEED PAINT OR FLOORING?Paint and flooring make a huuuuuge difference in the show value and sale-ability of your home. If there are rooms or areas that need love, it is a good idea to address those before a potential buyer (or photographer) walks through. Truth: A buyer' estimate for work will always be higher then yours!
#2 Photo/showing ruiner = Stuff on counters & dressers. Yikes! Photos, knick-knacks, perfume bottles, hand soap, Kleenex, doilies, coffee makers, toasters, napkins, rags, papers, junk drawer type stuff etc. These items draw the eye away from the home and onto your personal life. Not what we want. Also, if you have a crazy amount of things on your walls this can also be overwhelming.
3) DO YOU REQUIRE STAGING? This may be where you want to start thinking about having a Real Estate Professionalto your home to give some pointers (and to help you do some of the heavy lifting hehe)Often just re-arranging the furniture you already have is all that needs doing :) Some common & easy fixes are:
#1 If you have a huge bed or lots of bedroom furniture, consider paring down to make it feel more spacious. The master bedroom is the most important, I commonly suggest a dresser move into the guest or basement bedroom instead.
#2 If your living room angles require your couch to close off the room in order to comfortably watch TV, try re-arranging the furniture to best suit the space.

Your most memorable moment
My most memorable moment with Jennifer is that she looked after me just like my own daughters look after me!
As an elderly lady, I couldn't have asked for a more caring and professional person to list and sell my home. I felt very secure with Jennifer, as it was obvious she is very experienced in real estate. She was very warm and informative in helping me decide how to sell my home. I did not feel pressure to conform to her idea's and realized quickly that her expertise was exactly what I needed and wanted. She marketed my home with amazing electronic and hard copy advertising and her suggestions and ability gave me peace of mind. My house sold within a few days for an excellent price! The whole selling experience with clients coming into my home was handled expertly! She looked after it, from beginning to end, so that I didn't have to be involved with anyone else. I would recommend her to anyone! Thank you, Jennifer, for looking after me like a daughter would!! Sincerely, Alice Murray "
