[Real Estate Corner] How to stage for a quick sale!

Q.  How can I “stage” my home so it sells quickly for the price I want?

A.   Make sure you address both the outside and the inside of the house by cleaning and de-cluttering everything, from the front yard to the garage to the kitchen, bathrooms, and basement.  Put away your personal items so buyers can imagine themselves living there.

One way to take years off your home is with paint.  Check the home’s exterior paint job, and don’t forget the front door, mailbox, garage doors, and walkways.   In the interior, remove the pictures from the walls (as well as old wallpaper) and paint the walls in a neutral color. 

Also, consider these tips if you want to sell your home fast for a good price:  a) Hire professional cleaners to do the work; b) Get a home inspection before you put it on the market; and c) Make your landscaping look sharp.  

For a list of the specific steps you should take, ask for my Free Consumer Report called “4 Steps To Stage Your Home For A Fast Sale.”  I’ll send a copy right to you.

[Real Estate Corner] Don't want a stale listing???

Q.  My home has been on the market several months.  What can I do to keep it from looking like a stale listing and get it sold? 

A.   You may know price can be the most important factor in getting a home sold, but there are other things that can give you a competitive advantage in the marketplace.  Ask for a copy of my “26-Step Home Marketing Plan” for the complete list.  Three critical steps are:

·         Offer incentives:  Mentioning in the listing description that you are willing to pay some of the closing costs, repairs or inspections can make a big difference in making your home attractive to buyers. 
·         Internet exposure:  Today’s buyers are searching for homes on real estate search websites like,, and  It is critical that the listing is re-submitted to as many sites as possible if the price has changed.
·         Fresh photos:  This is particularly true if your old pictures reflect a different season.  Photos from the spring are a red flag to homes in the fall. 

You can learn more about how to sell your home quickly and for the most money possible by requesting my Free Consumer Report called Secrets For Selling Your Home For Top Dollar.”

5 Simple Memory Tricks

It’s frustrating not remembering where you put important items or forgetting basic details.  Use these tricks to keep track of things:

v  Cluster numbers:  Help your brain process the numbers “2, 8, 4, 9” by clustering them into “twenty eight, forty nine.”

v  Say it out loud:  Tell yourself that you’re locking the door as you leave.  Repeat that you’re going to the kitchen for scissors either out loud or to yourself.  This will keep you from becoming distracted.

v  Convert grocery lists to meals:  If you need hot dogs, milk, mustard, cereal and buns, you can think breakfast (cereal and milk) and lunch (mustard, hot dogs, and buns).

v  Designate a place:  Store your cell phone and keys in the same place close to your front door.  This way you’ll know exactly where they are the next time you’re running late for an appointment. 

v  Use visual triggers:  For example, leaving a piece of paper on your car seat before going into the office will remind you to get gas before you return home.  Or, putting a DVD by the front door reminds you to return it to the rental store before you leave the house.
