Get Your Home SOLD!

Putting your house on the market is not easy.

Well, actually, I lied. The truth is, it’s pretty simple to put a house up for sale. What’s not easy – is SELLING your home for the price you want.

Even in this crazy seller’s market, some agents struggle with finding the right buyers for a particular house (and to me, “the right buyers” mean people who are willing to make a solid offer and can qualify for such a home).

Frankly, there’s a big difference between someone who knows how to put your house on the market and someone who knows how to sell your home.

The good news is – When you work with a real estate agent who understands the tricks of how to market your home to potential buyers, I can promise you – the home selling process just got a lot easier!

Sure you can hold an open house… Sure you can put the home in the MLS… Sure you can put it on your Facebook page, website and other social media outlets…

But if the house isn’t being presented well through the basic description and the photos – you’ll never get anywhere.

Worse yet, if the house isn’t “ready” for potential buyers to see themselves living in your home, the offers will be slim to none.

Finally – if you have a number in mind, but your agent doesn’t have the guts to tell you that number is too high, then you’re going to alienate an entire group of people who CAN buy your home (because they’ll never come see it).

Not to mention additional advertising, flyers, color brochures and connecting sellers with a potential buyer who’s already working with that agent to find a home in the market. Oh – and making sure the whole transaction passes inspection, appraisal, and lending guidelines…

You see? It’s not just about selling your home. It’s about the whole freaking process of getting your home SOLD.

That’s the difference a realtor makes.

Let me know if you’re tired of trying to “sell” your house – And if you’re ready to get your home SOLD… I’d be happy to help 🙂

I Dreamed a Dream…

Buy the Dream Home – Or stick to my budget…?

Many of my clients get a little nervous about the idea of buying their “dream home”… That’s because most of us, if given the choice, would prefer to win the “HGTV Dream Home Giveaway” and call it good! Who wouldn’t? That’s our idea of our ultimate “dream home”…

But I’m here to tell you – Your dream home doesn’t have to be featured on tv for it to be the perfect home for you and your family.

For some people, the idea of simply owning a home (any home!) is a dream come true! For others, buying a home with more space for their growing family is what’s desperately needed… And yet for others, the idea of down-sizing for something a little more low-maintenance is the “new dream” to achieve.

Regardless of your circumstances, your dream home doesn’t have to mean the house at the top end of your budget! It just means it’s the perfect house for you, right now.

And speaking of budgets, there are LOTS of tricks and sneaky ways to get your dream home, without breaking the bank…

One of the first “tricks” is all about who you know…

Here’s the deal – when you connect with the right mortgage lender, you’ll be AMAZED at how they work their magic! Not every lender is the same – That’s why I work with several different lenders – and I do my best to match personality with personality – so that lenders fully understand the home-owner’s top priorities!

And when you connect with the right mortgage lender, you suddenly have a greater sense of the kind of home you truly want. You’re no longer indecisive – And there’s a sense of calm assurance when making an offer on a home you really, really love.

What’s that you say? You don’t get “calm assurance” when working with your lender on pre-qualification?

Then by all means – let me have a stab at it! I truly enjoy connecting people who have similar dispositions and personality types. I’m telling you – working with the right lender, makes finding your “dream home” a piece of cake.

Finally, I’ve also put together “Six Secrets for Buying Your Dream Home on a Budget” – as a free download available for you. Just click here, enter your information, and we’ll immediately send you your free copy!

Perhaps one of these Six Secrets will be the strategy you need to buy your dream house today!
