The 4 "secrets" to get more money for your home

Keeping your family safe when selling your home


I help pay to paint your home, do repairs
and minor updates ... at NO COST to you!

When you hire me to sell your house, one reason my homes sell faster than most and typically get more money than most is because I invest my money in your home to make it show its best.

It seems like such a simple thing, yet I'm surprised most agents don't do it. It's worth it to me to invest that extra money to insure your home makes a great first impression and sells fast.

Here's basically how it works...

I have a generous budget allotted for every home I sell. The budget varies based on the price of the home. And that money is available to help cover costs on anything needed to help you and make sure your home shows the best. For example, you might need landscaping in the front yard to give it a beautiful curb appeal. I can help with the costs. You might need some rooms painted. No problem, I can help on those costs, too. You might have water marks in the ceiling from a leaky shower that needs to be repaired. No problem, I'll help cover those costs as well. Or you might just need to change out some outdated light fixtures and make your home look more modern. Again, no problem.

Also, many times sellers don't really know what they need. No problem for that either! I typically help sellers walk through their home and identify things needed to be fixed, painted, repaired, or updated. I even have a list of trusted contractors who work with many of my clients. I not only provide recommendations, but can even help coordinate the work and take that burden off of you if you desire.

So, if you're planning to sell, give me a call. Let's talk about how I can help cover costs to get your home on the market so it sells for most money.



Special buyers I work with and what they are looking for...

Because of limited inventory I constantly have buyers who have not found the right home, and many are at the point of being willing to pay TOP dollar for the right home. And with the home market as crazy as it is, one would think finding the right home would be easy, but for some of these buyers it isn’t.

If you are thinking of selling soon I may be able to sell it for FULL asking price as soon as you are ready to sell. Here’s what they are currently looking for: 3-4+ bedrooms, garage, usable front or back yard, ideally 1800-2800+ sq ft, and a place for children or dog to play.

If your home fits this description, please call me immediately and let's talk.

The Top 4 "Secrets" That Get Buyers Paying As Much as 18% More For Your Home!

Secret #1:  Fix Problem Issues Before Your Buyer Gets An Inspection (Value:  2-4% of Sales Price)

One of the most frequent things that knock the sales price down is a bad inspection. Any smart homebuyer will have your home inspected, and if the inspection has problems, they always use those problems to negotiate down the price ... and you'll lose an average of as much as 2-4% of your price when they do. How do you conquer this? Simple! Get your own home inspection. Find out what an inspector says are problems ... then fix them first before your home goes on the market. The few dollars you'll spend in repairs far outweigh what you'll keep by not negotiating down your price.

Secret #2:  Upgrade Your Home And Make It Desirable (Value:  2-5% of Sales Price)

The second secret is upgrading your home. With the right expertise you can upgrade strategic areas in your home and make a huge impact on your sales price. This is where I, as an experienced Realtor, can make a big difference. You can spend money on upgrading some things and get no increase. But you can invest money in other things and net as much as $10,000 more in the sales price. Overall, when done right, a strategic "home upgrade" can impact sales price as much as 2-5%. For a $300,000 home ... that's as much as $15,000!

Secret #3:  Set Your Buyer's Mind At Ease With A Home Warranty (Value:  2% of Sales Price)

The third secret is a home warranty. You've probably seen these already, but did you know they can impact the price of your home as much as 2%? A warranty gives your buyer peace of mind in the buying process, making it easier for them to buy your home over one without a warranty.

Secret #4:  Use Expert Staging To Make Buyers Love Your Home (Value:  6-10% of Sales Price)

And the fourth secret is expert staging. Unless you've sold a lot of homes, this one can be tricky. "Staging" is how you set up your home to show. It's everything from little repairs, to color selections, to placing the right furniture where it belongs and putting wrong furniture in storage. It's all about making your home more desirable, and a professionally staged home can usually net as much as 6-10% more in its sales price. That's as much as a $30,000 increase in the final sales price on a $300,000 home. That's impressive!

Add those together, and you can get as much as 18% more on the sale of your home ... plus your home will sell a lot quicker!

These Are Just The Beginning Of What Makes A Home Sell For Top Dollar ...

These 4 "secrets" are just of a few of the reasons my clients' homes sell as fast and for as much money as they do.  Here's what I mean...

An old businessman had an employee come to him and say "Boss, I'm quitting. I'm going to start my own business and compete against you." At that, the old business owner said, "that's okay, but just remember two things." And the employee said, "what things?" The old business owner said, "Number 1, I taught you everything you know. And Number 2, I didn't teach you everything I know!"

In the same way, these 4 secrets are just the "tip of the iceberg", so to speak.  There's another 15 or 20 things I haven't even told you about I do that sells my homes for more money!
