Ideas for Staging Your Backyard without Breaking the Bank
 
Most home sellers understand the need for staging the interior of their house for sale, but many underestimate the value to staging their outdoor areas.

real estate: Why You Should Use Realtor Recommended Service Providers - 01/03/17 12:22 PM
I’m supposed to be at a closing right now, but it ain’t gonna happen!
When buying a new home there are many service providers you will choose to assist you.  Of course the first will be your Realtor, but you will also need the services of a lender and closing attorney/title office among others.
I strongly recommend that you request a referral for these services from your Realtor rather than using a friend or choosing the “lowest bidder”.   Your agent has day-to-day experience with these professionals and knows who can get the job done and who can turn your transaction into a real … (1 comments)

real estate: Home Seller Warning - Don’t Let This Happen To You - 09/28/16 04:09 AM
I passed this sign in my Forsyth County neighborhood today and was so outraged that I stopped to take a picture of it. I can’t imagine any home seller settling for this lack of professionalism from the real estate agent they are paying to market their property.   It could be that the seller is working with a friend or family member and does not want to be seen as “difficult”, but more than likely they simply do not know that they have a right to expect more.
 
MARKETING MATTERS!   Unfortunately, many sellers do not understand the pivotal role professional marketing plays in getting their … (2 comments)

real estate: Do I Really Need to Get a Survey on my New Home? - 08/10/16 07:06 AM
Buyer's ask me all of the time - "Do I really need to get a survey?" This cautionary tale will answer that.
Life is full of anomalies. You know, those “one off” situations that you think you’ll never see again. But, when the same topic comes up on three separate occasions in a short period of time, I know that there’s more to it than a simple case of bad luck and I need to be prepared to change my way of doing business or provide a strong warning to my clients.
Recently I was contacted by a homeowner who had … (0 comments)

real estate: What Can Make your Home Sell Faster and for More Money? - 04/20/16 07:27 AM
The short answer… the features it offers!  But it’s what your agent does to help promote those features that really makes all the difference.
 
We all know that new or updated homes sell more quickly than outdated homes or those in need of repair or lacking upgrades. But, did you know that certain updates offer more bang for your buck, and that the words used to describe them can have a significant impact on how quickly your home sells and the amount that it sells for?
I always provide my Forsyth County home sellers with a high quality, professional photography … (0 comments)

Making Your Home OPEN HOUSE Ready
My husband and I currently have our home in Blue Ridge, GA on the market and plan to move to an area about 75 miles south - closer to my husband's office - when it sells.  On a recent "scouting trip" to that area we noticed an OPEN HOUSE sign in one of our top choice neighborhoods and decided to stop in for a peak.
The front door was open when we arrived so we stepped into the foyer with a loud "Hello" to alert the agent on duty that someone was in the home … (6 comments)
