What renovations should I consider before selling, if any? Get an expert, practical opinion of this. We are happy to come by your property and let you know whether we think you should replace flooring, paint, renovate bathrooms or kitchens, tackle a landscaping project or a new roof, and the list goes on. Don't get overwhelmed, there are things that make sense, and things that don't. We know what makes sense, and we'll give it to you straight.

Maximum market exposure. How does your listing travel to all the farthest reaches of the internet, where every potential buyer will see it? Our MLS database is the source for generally all 3rd party sites, such as Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com and the several thousand others that are out there. This happens essentially automatically. But what does matter? Presentation, professional high-quality photos that showcase your home in it's best light, smart descriptions that make your property sound like a great investment. Your listing will be seen everywhere, let's make it look its best when it is seen.

Availability. Making it easy for prospective buyers to schedule showings is key to maximizing every opportunity. Homes that are difficult to view lose out on prospective buyers that have skipped viewing a home because they simply couldn't get in when it was convenient for them.

We'll also protect you with the necessary contingencies to ensure you don't wind up without a home to live in, get nailed with high capital gains taxes, etc. Did you know that if you are over 55, you can transfer your property tax base from your previous home to a new home, if certain qualifications are met? Considering a 1031 exchange to avoid capital gains taxes? We'll steer you in the right direction and handle all of the details.
