Before & After Sale Services

Services for Real Estate Pros with Noted Curmudgeons

Before the sale:

Many areas require some sort of inspection prior to the sale of a residential property. Sometimes such inspections result in major repairs that must be handled by a licensed, bonded contractor and likely will require a permit for the work. More often, the work required is minor, and may be handled by the homeowner or a “handyman (or woman)” (the latter is the type of repairs both Medford and I performed for Teresa Boardman’s customers). Veteran real estate agents generally have cultivated both professional contractors and handypeople that they can count on to provide the necessary services. 

After the sale:

For 1st time homeowners, a “Do-It-Yourself Fixit” book might be an appropriate, and inexpensive closing gift. For any buyer, a list of reliable contractors and handypeople in the area would certainly be appreciated, especially for out of town buyers—new to the area. Medford & I don’t generally make recommendations (except occasionally, and grudgingly, each other), but will recommend that a membership to Angie’s List is a good thing to do.
