You’ve made the decision to sell. So, now what?
Your home may be your single biggest investment and one of the largest financial transactions you’ll ever make. So when you sell, you want to get the best price and the most favorable terms. But there’s much more to marketing a home than placing a classified ad in the newspaper and anchoring a “for sale” sign in the front yard. There are many marketing options, legalities and details that go into the sale, from the time you set the price to the final closing.
The best way to make sure you sell your home for the best price, and in the shortest amount of time, is to work with a full-service professional agent. I’m educated in every aspect of the transaction, from writing an offer to negotiating the price, to arranging financing and following the transaction through to escrow. I know the market and will help you set the right price. I am a member of the multiple listing service (mls), and I interact with other agents on a daily basis.

It all starts with the “3 C’s”: curb appeal, clutter (as in de-clutter), and cleanliness. Download Windemere’s Guide to Selling a Home — a uniquely helpful tool with checklists and other information.
