3 Things To Do Before You Sell Your Home

keep-calm-i-m-number-oneA Full Home Inspection.

Knowledge is power. Take the fear out of the dreaded inspection by doing it yourself! This is everything! No Buyer will be able to surprise you with a repair or reduction in purchase price when you already know what’s behind the paint and under the house.

number 2 Shampoo the Carpets.

No odor is the best odor! Think: New Car Smell. It’s clean and fresh and ready for the Buyer. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve opened the door for a Buyer to show a home, and a funky odor seeps out of the house! This happens all the time. It’s the first impression for the Buyer and it will literally make or break a potential offer.

number 3 Beauty Bark.

It’s cheap, easy and effective. Nothing says groomed and ready more than a fresh lawn and fresh beauty bark. Curb appeal is what gets the Buyer excited to GO INTO THE HOME. You can’t get an offer if the Buyer is not even compelled to go inside and take a look. And like a book cover, it’s a good indication of what’s inside!

I’m Georgia. My friends call me Peach. I’m a Second Generation Realtor obsessed with Real Estate since 1999.

Home Is Where the Christmas Tree Is.

Home is where the Christmas tree is!

Or where the Menorah is lit. Or the Kwanzaa candles burn bright.

This time of year I can’t help but to think about how awesome my “job” is.

Mom and I love working with our buyers and sellers all year ’round but this time of year is special!

Walking through houses and writing contracts does not even begin to reveal the best part of being a Realtor. The reward is seeing all of you in your homes, with your family, new babies and friends enjoying the spirit of the season and a good Seahawks win!

When our clients post pictures of their houses decorated with lights on their “1st” Christmas tree on Facebook it makes me smile so big!

I have so much joy knowing that I played a critical role in helping my buyers find and purchase their home.

With much bad news in the media about ISIS and random acts of terror, I can’t help but to focus on the love that this season brings. This year more than ever my Christmas wish is: Peace on Earth and Good Will Toward Men.

Tired of multiple offers? Think about new construction instead.

Buyer’s are exhausted; Running around before and after work ( and taking off during lunch breaks) to be the first buyer to see a property gets old fast.

Let alone, pre-inspections, escalation clauses and waiving appraisals is not what most buyers have in mind when it comes to buying a home.

New construction may be your best solution to avoid the rush of the resale market. Builders have inventory that needs to move and for Buyers that translates to peace of mind, picking out your own color pallets and allowing the time needed for financing and inspections.

You can find me twice a week at Lexington Park in Bothell. There are 4 homes, move-in ready and all priced to sell $559,900-$669,000.

New prices on new construction. Come visit me at the model home.
