Selling your Real Estate Home in The Woodlands & Spring, Texas

Are you considering selling your Real Estate Home in The Woodlands & Spring, Texas?  You need to keep in mind a few things!

STAGING YOUR HOME:

Keep it Neutral:

It is easier for a Buyer to see themselves in a NEUTRAL colored living area:

BEFORE:

(Outdated colors and furniture)

AFTER:

(Updated designer paint colors and neutral furniture)

BEFORE:

(old & outdated kitchen)

AFTER:

A kitchen is the #1 area to update in your home!  New appliances, cabinets and an island was added.

 

Use a PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER!

Over 85% of all homes are found and purchased from an online viewing. Most Realtors will put your home in MLS, Realtor.com and maybe a website if they have one. My efforts go way beyond that. Here is a partial list of where I market my clients homes:

My websites:

www.pippamac.com/
Localism (Local Information)
HAR (Houston Association of Realtors)
Active Rain (national)

According to Hitwise the top Real Estate traffic search Websites are:

www.realtor.com 
www.remax.com
www.zillow.com
www.realestate.yahoo.com
Use a real estate agent who uses ALL of these websites to market your home!
There are differences between the levels of exposure which your home will receive on the Internet. If you are competing with 40 other homes for sale in your community, you need to be able to say to your family and friends that your home doesn't blend in with all the rest - you can Google your home... this might make all the difference in the world!

Currently only 4% of Realtors blog, this is a way for your home to stand out!

Here is a current article I wrote on tips to SELL your home:

The ReMax sign is a proven WINNER in attracting buyers!!!!


Arrangements will be made for professional photographs to be taken of both the exterior and interior of your home.


A Virtual Tour will be created for your home.


Your home will be placed immediately in the local MLS (Multiple Listing Service).

I work with all Relocation Companies.

One of the best ways to know if you are hiring a Real Estate Pro is to "Google" their name. If there are not pages of results I would think strongly about not considering this agent.  Why? If the agent does not know how to promote themselves how could you possibly expect them to do a good job marketing your home! The last thing you want in Real Estate is a "secret agent."
