There are many ways to boost your home’s value. I’ve got some tips that will help you get 17% more money for your home.


First, there’s curb appeal. Curb appeal is important because it’s the first impression a buyer will get of your home. When they drive by, they should like what they see. A home that looks like work on the outside seems like it will be a lot of work on the inside. This can deter potential buyers from your home.


Speaking of aesthetics, make sure your home is painted with neutral colors and is professionally staged. We have an on-staff professional stager ready to help you and your home.


Keep in mind that all of these things are important when it comes to photos of your homes. Photos act as an invitation to

Naturally, one of the first things you might want to do is go out and buy appliances or new furniture. However, these are big-ticket items.

Whether you’re a buyer or a seller, home inspections are a critical part of the home sale process.

How do home inspections work? During the home inspection, the inspector walks through the home and examines its structural integrity and mechanical features.

both buyers and sellers. ”

If you’re a seller, a home inspection can be a great tool. As you prepare for the sale, having it done up front saves you both time and money because it notifies

For one thing, you have to remember that there is far less inventory during the winter. This means that there is less competition now than what you would see during the spring. We have relocation buyers at all times of the year, not just in spring. Today, you might have to compete with 10 other homes to capture the attention of the buyer pool. In spring, that number could quadruple.

In spring, you’ll have to compete with more
homes on the market. ”  

Another reason winter might be a better time to sell is the fact that you won’t have to deal with as many
