If you are thinking of selling my advice is to call your professional REALTOR® early in the thinking process. REALTORS® know what’s happening in your specific area, and we can tell you the real story on numbers of sale and days on market. REALTORS® can even give you specific advice on upgrading or staging your house to sell. Pricing is the major element in a speedy sale and your REALTOR® is the person that can help guide you.
Buyers also need to know the lay of the land. While the national news might be screaming that it’s a “buyers’ market”, that’s not ALWAYS true. Again, your local REALTOR® can help you get the information you need. There is a lot more to finalizing a successful purchase than just searching the internet and finding a home that looks good online. So, make sure you talk to a REALTOR® who can help you complete your sale or purchase.
Everyone wants to work with the best. REALTORS® inherit a priviledge and an obligation that sets them apart from the rest. Read What Sets REALTORS® Apart
