Right now is the best time of year to get your home on the market for the spring and summer market!

Before you list your home, I have a few tips to help you with the process.

Start the process by cleaning and de-cluttering.  Put away personal photos and items, and clean all the nooks and crannies.  Wash the drapes, touch up or repaint, patch holes in walls, and start the packing process.

Curbside appeal is really important.  Spruce up the front yard! Pressure wash the drive ways, walk ways and siding, and plant flowers.  Trim bushes, mow the lawn, and paint your front door if it needs it, because you only get one chance to make a first impression. 

Next, it's time to decide on a Realtor.  Talk to friends and family and ask for direct referrals

What is my Home worth

By Denise Swanson


A CMA (Comparative Market Analysis) is a format Realtors use to price your home. An experienced Realtor has many tools available to him or her, to support their estimation of value of your home for market.

Most seller’s usually have a figure in mind when they meet with a Realtor, since they have seen homes sell in their neighborhood, have had a recent refinance appraisal, or have used some of the online tools for valuation of real estate that are offered by companies like Zillow or Trullia.
