I know that home buyers love to look at Zillow because it’s pretty, easy to use and everyone loves the handy map function! However, Zillow 🚫isn’t🚫the most reliable source when it comes to getting Real Estate information. Zillow doesn’t know your interest rate, the cost of your homeowner’s insurance, what type of loan program you’re using, or several other factors that can affect your monthly payment.
🚨
There is also a lot of information that isn’t up to date, so there might be homes for sale that in reality have an Accepted Offer but Zillow won’t reflect that. So make sure you stick with the custom MLS search that your Real Estate Agent sets up for you to ensure that you have the most accurate and up to date info!
🚨
PS – Don’t forget to request my FREE Guide – Reality House Hunters – everything you don’t see on HGTV so that you can learn what else to prepare for! Reach out to me today to get your hands on this valuable resource!

Did you know that a designated mud room or laundry room space is on the top of many buyer’s home wish lists?Even if you don’t have a pretty mud room with built in lockers like in this picture, you can still make your laundry / mud room space organized and functional.
🌟Use woven storage baskets for storing cleaning supplies and paper towel.
🌟Add a shoe rack to have a designated shoe spot and prevent them from being scattered across the floor.
🌟Add hooks for hanging coats or backpacks and don’t forget a rug or runner when you come in from the garage for wiping wet shoes and keeping floors free from dirt!
🌟 If you need more storage space, add a few floating shelves where you can store laundry detergent, dryer sheets, and extra towels.
📢
When your home is organized, buyers will be able to envision their own things staying organized instead of worrying about how much space there will be.

One of the best things you can do when preparing your home for sale is to see it from the Buyer’s Perspective 👓Time to use your imagination, step outside and pretend like you’re the buyer coming to tour your home!✨Remember the exterior is going to be a buyer’s first impression so make sure to put your “buyer glasses” on before stepping through the front door🚪Use the Notes app on your phone to create a list of anything you think should be improved prior to listing. Does the front door need a fresh coat of paint? Could you use some bright colored flowers💐in the planters on the front porch? Maybe the door mat is looking a little shabby or the light fixtures are getting outdated. Take notes on things that you could improve to make sure you’re not losing buyer’s attention before they ever get inside! If you hire me though, I would be happy to come over and help you get this list done together! 😊

According to realtor.com, a Home Gym & Tennis Courts are high on the list for features that can help sell a home the fastest for the best price. If you could have one of these features, would you rather have a home gym🏋 with your favorite workout equipment (no more trips to the gym!) or would you rather have tennis🎾courts in the backyard where you could have family tennis matches on the weekends?

As a home buyer, you’ll have a team👔of professionals working for you to help you through the entire process. It’s important that you do your research and hire people that you trust. I recommend interviewing 2-3 Real Estate Agents and Lenders (or at least researching them) before committing to one! I sure hope to be on that list! 🤓

You’re going to be talking with your Real Estate Agent a lot (probably almost daily) so it’s important that you find someone you click with and who you also trust to guide you through the process!

When it comes to choosing a lender, you’ll want to choose someone LOCAL 🗺who you can meet with in person! You can ask your Real Estate Agent for lender recommendations as they’ve likely worked with quite a few and can help you choose someone who is the right fit!

Don’t forget to request my #FREE Guide – Reality House Hunters- to learn all about the home buying process (what you don’t see on HGTV!) so that you can be prepared for homeownership! This guide includes the other 2 team members you’ll work with when buying a house so don’t miss out!

Window treatments can completely change the look of a room (for better or worse!). This is 👆accessory you don’t want to overlook when it comes to staging your home for sale. Go room to room and evaluate your current window treatments to see which ones might need to be swapped out or maybe even added.

Neutral colored curtains can help make windows appear taller and add some style to a room. If you have outdated patterned curtains or blinds that aren’t in the best shape, consider replacing them prior to listing your home for sale!💸You don’t have to spend a fortune to have stylish window treatments. Look at Target or Overstock for some budget friendly options!

#FridayFunny 😂Buying a home can be a very scrupulous process, in terms of your finances being monitored, but its all in your best interest. It's an old real estate adage, but I still tell my clients this all the time: "We don't want you to be house rich, but life poor."

There is a lot that goes into the home buying process and it can seem overwhelming if you jump into it feet first, without FIRST learning about the process from a trusted real estate pro! Today on the blog I’m sharing a few of the top mistakes you can’t afford to make as a first time home buyer! 🤓

The #1 Mistake I see buyers making is thinking there is only ONE house for them! After creating your list of must haves, deal breakers and other items on your wish list, it might seem overwhelming to try to find the home that matches all of that criteria. The truth is, there isn’t just 1️⃣ house for you. There could be several homes that are the right fit which is why it’s important to stick to searching for homes that have your top requirements and not worrying too much about things that can easily be changed such as decor and paint colors. Click the link in my bio to read the full blog post and learn about 4 more mistakes buyers make👉
