Thinking of selling your home? Don't rely only on online guesses for its value. Let me tell you a story about why this matters.Imagine you're selling a house on General Wallace. Online sites say it's worth around $387k or $392k. But a local expert knows better. They understand the market and suggest listing it for $419k. Guess what? It sells for $431k!Here's the lesson: Pricing your home right is crucial. Trusting only online tools or agents who don't know your area well could cost you thousands. Before selling, talk to a local expert. They'll help you get the best price for your home.Don't sell yourself short. Talk to a pro and get what your home is really worth.

Hey there, future homeowner! Did you know that right now is the perfect time to make your dream home a reality? Let me break it down for you in simple terms.1. Sunshine and Snow MeltImagine a sunny day, and you can already picture your ideal home. Where there's green, the snow has melted, revealing the sunny spots. Even on a cloudy day, you'll know which part of the house is bathed in sunlight.2. Avoiding Basement SurprisesAs the snow disappears, it's the best time to check for potential basement issues. No one wants a flooded basement, right? Sniff around – if you catch a musty scent, it's time to address any water concerns.3. Roof Condition CheckWith the snow gone and recent rains, it's the prime opportunity to inspect the roof. Look up at the ceilings – any leaks will be revealed. Kn...

Home is where the heart is. As a veteran Realtor with 20 years of experience, I've had the privilege of meeting home sellers at different stages of their lives. Even if sellers claim not to be emotionally attached, I know that's not always the case. Selling a beloved home can feel like losing years of memories and a neighborhood full of friendships, especially when it involves uprooting from your current city or community. In this blog, let's explore a three-step process to help you handle your emotions when selling your home.Step 1: Embrace Your FeelingsDuring the selling process, emotions may fluctuate. Challenges may arise, and you may feel disheartened by the results of a home inspection report. It's important to acknowledge and embrace these emotions as a natural part of the proces...
