selling a home carlisle pa: What to Expect Throughout the Real Estate Transaction Process By: Maria Sapio, REALTOR® Carlisle, PA. - 04/02/19 07:12 PM
The timeframe between when a homeowner decides to sell their home and when the home becomes an active listing is referred to as the 'pre-listing phase.'  
The pre-listing phase should be thought of as similar to laying a solid foundation on a new home. The entire structure of the home depends on the strength of the foundation.  Likewise, when making the decision to sell your home, I highly recommend aligning yourself with a REALTOR® who will oversee this important foundational aspect of the listing process with the utmost care.  When I work with a client during the pre-listing phase, we discuss the plan that is … (28 comments)

selling a home carlisle pa: Let it Rain - By: Maria Sapio, Realtor® Carlisle, PA. - 01/10/19 08:04 AM
June 2016 I was sitting in a meeting when someone mentioned a real estate blogging forum called 'Active Rain.'  I remember questioning if I had even heard the name correctly.  Seriously, what does 'Active Rain' mean, and how does it relate to real estate?
Fast forward to January 2019 - and yes, it's still called Active Rain. 
Although to some of us, we affectionately simply refer to it as - 'the Rain.' 
To those of us that have ever pushed a seed into the ground and awaited a sprout, we understand that a seed needs a few things before erupting through the soil.  … (47 comments)

selling a home carlisle pa: Practicing Real Estate is Like Learning to Swim - Maria Sapio Carlisle, PA. - 05/29/18 01:17 PM

Just like a doctor 'practices' medicine - I like to think of myself as one that 'practices' Real Estate.
I cringe when I think of being called an 'expert' at anything. 
I prefer to consider myself as
Always a student,
Always continuing to learn,
Always growing in knowledge.  
Back to my analogy - so, why do I think being a Realtor® is like learning to swim?
The only way to learn how to swim is to get in the water.
We may practice arm strokes on land and even have a plan for what to do after jumping into the water but ultimately the only … (24 comments)

selling a home carlisle pa: A Little Encouragement Goes A Long Way - Maria Sapio, Realtor® - 04/26/18 05:02 AM

Around this time, almost two years ago, I was contacted by a sweet young couple that wanted to purchase their first home.  As soon as we met, I felt like I had known them for years as we embarked upon the journey together to find a home.  Due to the lack of inventory and specific price parameter that has been set, the search is still underway and the journey continues.
As their Realtor® I have specifically marketed the area of interest to them and even walked door-to-door to introduce myself and ask homeowners if they are considering selling.  I search for newly listed … (30 comments)

selling a home carlisle pa: 3F's and Marketing - Maria Sapio, Realtor® - Carlisle, PA - 04/24/18 09:32 AM

Growing up in an Italian family, I learned very early in life the tremendous value of the '3F's'  - Family, Friends and Food.
My mother beamed with delight when the dining room table was crowded with family and friends.  Her generous heart was always willing to invite and as a young girl, I have vivid memories of first time guests being overwhelmed by my mother's tremendous gift of hospitality.  If company was expected, my mom would usually visit our local grocer and carefully hand select the produce, meats and cheeses and then cook for days and create an abundance of mouth watering delicacies … (35 comments)

selling a home carlisle pa: “Let’s Get Real” - No Fooling Around About It! - 04/21/17 09:27 AM
Thank you Kathleen Daniels for offering the April Challenge inviting us to 'the dark side' where we must each explore the "one peeve in your business that drives you bat-bonkers."
This peeve literally came out to bite me this week.  I was showing four properties to my buyer/clients on Monday.  The schedule was tight and the homes were in four different towns.  However, I am very respectful of showing appointments and understand that usually a homeowner needs to leave the home on purpose to accommodate a showing so I am careful to plan ahead and schedule accordingly.  However sometimes circumstances cannot be avoided.  After … (28 comments)

selling a home carlisle pa: Simple Synergy - Carlisle, PA. - 03/30/17 08:00 AM
I received the following message from a Realtor recently:
"Awesome to work with you.  So nice to have someone that is serious about their job.  Thank you. So refreshing to work with someone that isn't a cut throat or a shark."
I paused and thought about those words...
The real estate profession is a 'people business' - and life is just sweeter when we all play nicely and treat each other with the utmost respect.  The ultimate goal is to assist our client to buy or sell a home.  All involved parties can best achieve that goal by working together in an amicable fashion. 
Looking for … (8 comments)

selling a home carlisle pa: Get Ready, Arms Extended - Jump, then Swim - Carlisle, PA. - 02/24/17 02:03 PM
Deciding to sell your home is like jumping into a pool...
It can't be done 'half-way'...
But to take the plunge, there's only one way to do it:
Get Ready, Arms Extended - Jump, then Swim...
Get Ready (For Showings):
You already know to clean every nook and cranny and you've been told that the counter tops must be cleared and shined.
But in addition to sprucing up your home to look its best, are you accommodate showings?  Don't even think about setting showings from 10-12 on Friday and Saturday only.  Buyers want to see your home when they're ready to come - and a buyer … (40 comments)

selling a home carlisle pa: Are Real Estate Lawn Signs A Waste of Time...?? Carlisle, PA. - 02/12/17 02:29 PM
When searching for a restaurant to dine in or a new car to purchase - where do you begin?
Most people would opt to open their laptop and do a quick search.  Even more people will simply forego walking over to the laptop and will simply pick up their smart phone and the needful information is at their fingertips.
Would you simply hop in the car and drive around looking for a restaurant that catches your eye or would you stop by car dealerships to walk around to view vehicles up close?
In an age of quick access information, is it inconceivable that some prefer to … (22 comments)

selling a home carlisle pa: Selling a home in Carlisle, PA. - 02/11/17 08:12 AM
I was showing a buyer-client a home I have listed for sale and they offered me a great compliment - "I feel like I already know this home since the photos you posted online are so fantastic!"
How did I get such great photos...??  I hire a professional photographer.
Why do I think it's worth the extra expense...??  In the wise words of Barbara Todaro - "The Eye Buys" ... 
Great photography is no longer an 'nice touch' - it is a 'necessity' in my strong opinion.  
Being a listing agent is a privilege.  The seller had the option to choose ANY Realtor, and they picked ME, and I said YES. 
My listing is … (18 comments)
