MCHENRY - A new consumer awareness hotline gives McHenry County home sellers a behind-the-scenes peek at the most common mistakes that people make when selling their homes - how not to make them - and shares tips on simple, inexpensive things to do that make homes sell for thousands of additional dollars.
"Some home sellers over-invest in expensive improvements that don't significantly increase the value of their home," said Staci Wolff of Advantage Realty, "while other sellers fail to do the simple things that cost almost no money, yet always make homes sell for thousands of dollars more."
Wolff became so frustrated with seeing sellers make the same mistakes over and over again that she launched the Consumer Awareness Hotline several months ago as a community service. "It's really nice to see that people are calling and getting benefit from the hotline," said Wolff. "We get calls from people almost every week thanking us for the tips."
You can listen to Wolff's Consumer Awareness Hotline by calling 888-323-8798, ext. 7 to listen to a free recorded message.
