The Spring Season Starts Now!


    Spring is just around the corner, so whether you are thinking of putting your home on the market or planning to buy a home, right now is really the prime time to get started.

    Not sure where to begin? With the Internet and Web sites like, or my own site, you can explore numerous articles about home buying and selling. You can research communities and discover what kind of home may be best for you. You can also contact me and I can help you get started on the immediate tasks at hand.

    For home sellers in particular, there is much to prepare for and I can help you prioritize and put a successful plan in place. A strategic sales and marketing plan, like my “45 Point Marketing Plan To Sell Your Home”, is essential to engage active buyers. That plan should include an effective pricing strategy, home presentation suggestions and a comprehensive approach to online and traditional marketing. Contact me and I would be happy to forward a copy of my proactive approach to you.

    I can also provide you with a competitive market  analysis that includes a review of current inventory, recent comparable sales prices and discuss current market conditions in your area. In addition, I can guide you on how to prepare your home for maximum appeal and ensure your property is featured on the leading real estate Web sites and portals in the industry.

    There is plenty for homebuyers to do as well. Obtaining financing will be a major priority. With limited inventory on the market, those who come to the negotiating table pre-approved for a mortgage and ready to make an offer, will have a stronger bargaining positon.

    I can walk you step-by-step through the home buying process, and help you identify homes for sale and in the right price range. I can help you research the markets you are interested in, negotiate the asking price, assist with writing contracts, and guide you right through closing day.

    I greatly look forward to the spring selling season and ensuring that all of my clients have an effective plan in place to achieve their real estate goals. If you are thinking about buying or selling a home, now is the time to contact me.
