Simple things to help you sell your home

July 31, 2010

I know this is going to sound very simple to some I have to tell you I cannot count the number of homes I have gone in and people do not see the detail cleaning that could be done. Kitchen and baths will make or break a sale many times. If your competeing with an as is sale price in your neghborhood then why would you want your home to look like its going to be an as is sale as well. Take time to clean and detail the home. Declutter and get organized. Hire a stagger to help you. If need be get some contractors in there to make your house pop with style. Simple things like new pulls and hinges in the kitchen do help. Its sometimes all the little things that make a buyer say yes.

Price is all perspective

July 31, 2010

I was reading the Homefront article from the Virginia Pilot this weekend. Victoria Hecht had a great story about the cost of living in NYC compared to Hampton Roads. As I read the article it was apparent to me everything is perspective. Hampton Roads can be pricey if you're coming in from say Oklahoma. If you're a New Yorker then WOW you hit the jack pot when you moved here. Again its all perspective, our city sleeps, NYC does not. I hope you enjoy my take on the story and please share with me your thoughts on location and cost as you see it.

REIN STATS

July 20, 2010

REIN, Real Estate information Network. The next few minutes you will be mesmerized by all the numbers for 2009 and 2010 June reports ! Some great points to a recovering market other point to a decline in the market. Im just wanting to see the reports for July. I think the first time buyer credit helped push all the homes to close by the end of June. Many people were fearing the loss of 8k.
