In the years that I’ve been an agent, one thing I’ve learned is that colder seasons don’t end the real estate game…they just change it.
However, it’s still easy to make mistakes when selling in the fall.
It’s common knowledge that spring is the height of home sales. However, with the right approach and strategy, fall can be an equally (if not better) time to sell your home. Consider what you have going for you:
Buyers are ready to close and move in before the winter cold
The holidays make for excellent décor and curb appeal opportunities
Autumn foliage is the perfect frame for a home
The crisp fall air makes a warm house feel even more cozy
There are fewer showings, which means less competition
However, all of those benefits won’t aid you if you make some crucial missteps. Avoid these mistakes when selling in the fall: Read more
It's a Seller's Market out There. Now is the Time to List.
It’s a seller’s market! High demand from buyers and a tight inventory have made listed homes a hot commodity. This is especially true for the single-family homes that are ideal for first-time buyers.
However, many homeowners are hesitant to list. And who could blame them? According to some experts, the housing market is still recovering from the hit it took in 2007. The memory of the recession is still fresh and has many sellers sitting on the fence.
But here’s the thing. Sellers have commanded the market for the last two years – and with recent shifts in the market, 2017 is the hottest seller’s market we’ve had in years. So, if you’ve been putting off selling your home, there’s no better time than right now to sell. Read more
So you closed on your home, you’ve got the keys, and the moving truck is scheduled. Moving day is a big one that comes loaded with stress and long hours. And while you focus on correctly labeling all the boxes, it can be easy to let a few key things wait until the last minute.
Be sure to have these things checked off your list before moving day arrives. Read more
Sticking to a New Year’s Resolution can be tough for the first few months of the year. Exercise and dieting are no fun in the winter, so most resolutions tend to taper off by February.
However, the warmer temperatures of spring allow for a second chance…and no excuses. But if being stuck in a gym four times a week isn’t your speed, our communities offer plenty of outdoor recreation to help keep you active. Read more

Have you ever watched movies from the 1980s and thought, ‘Man…that was a different world’?
Then you realize “A Different World” was a sitcom from the 90s. And then you laugh. Harder than you’d like to admit.
When I think ’30 years ago,’ I still think 1970, but in just a few years, 1990 will be 30 years ago. A lot has changed in that time. Who would have thought that Birkenstocks or the turtleneck, cardigan sweater combo would ever go out of style?
I did. I thought that.
But the more things change, the more they stay the same, especially in real estate. We have the internet to thank for lots of big changes. I think of how much I relied on the internet when I bought my first house, and buyers in the 80s had none of that. However, while it’s easy to say that everything in real estate is different…is it really? Read more
