Staging Your Property


Will Rogers once said, ‘You never get the second chance to make a first impression.’  While Mr. Rogers was talking about people, it is also applicable to houses, especially when they are on the market for sale.


The cost of making improvements to a property prior to presenting it to buyers must be weighed against the impact these improvements can be estimated to have on the time it takes to sell the property and the final price received.


I can help you determine which improvements will make the most impact to ensure that your home is ‘market-ready.’


Showing Your Home


I make sure that all of my listings are on Supra keyboxes to make it as convenient as possible for other Realtors to make appointments and show you your home.  It is recommended that owners be away from the property if possible during showings.  This allows the prospective buyer to discuss your home freely with his or her agent.


At all times, I am aware of the fact that I must balance the considerations I have for your comfort with the need you have to sell your home in the shortest possible time … I will work with you to achieve the best results.


Drive Up Appeal


The critical ‘first look’ a potential buyer has of your property can determine whether or not a sale ensues.  Wonderful photographs of your property will create interest in potential buyers in your price range on the MLS, on,, and in print publications.  Those driving by will see the front of your property with the Ebby Halliday, Realtors sign, a recognized mark of quality, announcing that it is on the market.


A Pre-Contract Professional Inspection


Another time-saving suggestion is to have an inspection of your home made by a licensed professional inspector.  This would typically be the responsibility of the buyer and done after you have successfully negotiated a contract.  However, the benefit of doing it now is to find out early if there is anything that needs attention.  It can save time between contract and settlement if the inspector does find something that you are not aware of.  You have time to get a second opinion and find a reputable and reasonable contractor to make repairs.
