Morning Sky After many years with a rather sour market, things turned around drastically this year. Every home probably has several buyer’s as the inventory is low and the buyer’s are plentiful. We finally exited the doldrums of the meltdown of the financial market back in 2008. It took may years to make a come back but I think we are there now.

Now don’t start thinking you home is up in value 25%, that is not the case. However we are seeing normal appreciation and homes selling quickly. So much depends on the condition of your home. The home with the new kitchen and baths and a sturdy roof are always going to be more attractive to a buyer than a fixer upper. However they both will sell, just not at the same price.

If you are interested in selling and would like to know how to make small improvements, or if you just want to sell you home as is, please call me and we can discuss the value of your home in today’s market.

There are still many homes that are “under water” and it will probably take a couple more years to clear out all the impending foreclosures. Hopefully we will stay on track with a strong seller’s market, but one that is not unreasonable.

Call me on 732-763 2284 if I can help you buy or sell real estate.

Making the decision to sell your home is just the beginning of a thrilling journey you have decided to embark on. How much should I ask, how long will it take, what do I need to do to prepare? These are some of the questions you may have.

I have 39 years of experience and a proven track record which will allow me to guide you right through the entire process.

When selling a home for my client’s my first job is to show you how to enhance the house to make it most appealing to a buyer. A “Dress for Success” this way your home will sell for the most money.

My second job is to guide you to the best marketing price for your home. You don’t want to frighten buyer’s away during the “Golden Time” by over pricing.

Third job responsibility is to expose your property to the market. This is done through traditional marketing, target marketing and online marketing. This is a coordinated local, national and global strategy available through the Sotheby’s brand.

My job is to make certain you are worry free. I manage the sale from putting in the real estate sign to going to closing with you. Staying in constant communication with you so that you are always aware of what is happening.

I bring a Quality Company to the job with me. The Sothebys International Realty provides white glove service to all of their client’s. We are a full service company. We also partner with quality companies for mortgages, title and insurance.

I will work as your trusted real estate advisor, never pressuring, but guiding and educating you on good decisions.

My goal is to help my clients make good decisions and reach their life goals. My client is always #1.
