Relocating In or Out?


Relocating can become a bit overwhelming.  Let a professional help you with the task of getting your home sold, or getting you into the right home for you and your family.  I am qualified to work with every relocation company in the USA and would love the opportunity to make this part of the chaos a little easier to handle. 


1) You can use any agent that you want to use to help you sell or buy a home.  Wouldn't you want an agent that knows the area better, that understands the market in your neighborhood, and sells several homes locally? Oftentimes relocation companies refer their clients to agents that are NOT as familiar to their location or with how the market is in their neighborhood.


2) Relo company may imply that costs and fees may not be covered. When you or the relocation company hire an agent, they agree to split their commission with the relocation company.  You see commission splits around 25% to 40%.THIS agreement take places, regardless of who hires who.  So, when you hire me as your agent, your fees/costs/relocation package WILL NOT be jeopardized.   They are covered regardless.  


3) My number one goal is making you happy and keeping the relo on track so you can move on to the next chapter in your life. Most of my business comes from word of mouth.  I am not assigned business from a relocation company.  Therefore, I am going to do my very best for you so you will refer your friends and family!

The Importance of a Buyers Consultation

It only makes sense to not understand the home buying process backwards and forwards. You may only buy one or a few homes in your lifetime. That is why it is important to sit down with a professional who can help lay a solid foundation for you. This allows you to capitalize on your strengths as a buyer and develop a strategy when you're ready to dive into the market. For right now many homes are receiving multiple offers. Buyers are oftentimes competing with other families who just want a nice place to call home. What is it going to take to get YOU in the home of your dreams? I can help you! I can talk to you about the steps, educate you about what to look for if you need financing, and show you how to make you look great on paper to a seller!

If you have any questions, I'd love to chat!

Meeting Contract Value While Selling Your Heritage Home

When appraisals are discussed, all parties tend to become a little more tense and nervous.  This is a complete stranger's single opinion of your homes worth and he/she is basically what is standing in front of your family's future.  Whether you're upgrading, downsizing, selling or buying.


It is important that you approach this step in the process PROACTIVELY.  Reacting to an appraised value AFTER it has come in often times never works out in anyone's favor.  Being proactive can ensure that the home will appraise at contract price.


Educating the appraiser is KEY.  THIS is being proactive.  Inform the appraiser of things that they may not know off the bat.  Things that only a resident would know, for example.  Let the appraiser know of the updates and upgrades that you've done so you can prove to them that the value is THERE! These are just a few examples of what information I provide to Appraisers as they come out to my listings.  


If you have considered selling in the past, and have questions, I am always happy to chat.  


I hope that this video and information was helpful! Let me know what else you'd like to see on the Blog!
