Are you curious about your home's value? I want to give you some tips on how you can increase the resale value of your home.

The best way to get the highest possible sales price for your home is to work on the 3 Ps of listing your home for sale:

  1. ​Preparation - doing what it takes to get your home "Ready to Sell" so that buyers will value your home's features and imagine a "Lifestyle" for their family.
  2. Price - avoid the mistake of falling in "Limbo Land", a place where homes sit on the market too long and buyers think there MUST be something wrong with it.
  3. Promotion - Know a buyer's behavior when they are looking for a home to purchase and have a knowledgeable PRO marketing your home. Over 96% of buyers start their home search online. 

Your "home listing" for sale must be seen everywhere online that is possible. ​​We have researched and implemented the latest marketing techniques in the real estate industry. Real Estate marketing and selling homes has transformed over the past 10 years. We can show you how using a combination of the old, tried and true traditional marketing methods with the latest, incredible techy marketing methods needs to be used to sell your home.
