Smell is a powerful sense – it can make you buy

Smell has a greater impact on purchasing than everything else combined.

Truths About the Search for Love & the Search for Real Estate

House hunting and spouse hunting are more similar than you might think! One day your hopes might be so high and in your heart you know that this is ‘the one’. Then the next day you see unfix-able flaws and realize you have to move on.

In this video my friend, Tara Eisenhard, and I discuss the similarities between committing to and/or breaking up with a spouse…or a house. Our best advice: The ultimate decision about whether to move forward must be made from your ❤HEART❤.


DO NOT call the listing agent to see a house

Listing agents work for the seller, not you as the buyer. If you hire the listing agent to represent you, you are “hiring” someone to represent your interest AND the interests of your opponent. Think of it this way, would you hire your spouse’s lawyer in a divorce? No? So why do that when purchasing a home? Hire your own agent who’s going to help you get the best house, at the best price and most optimal terms. Your buyer’s agent will be able to show you any house for sale regardless of who it’s listed by. Want to work with me? Then give me a ring! 717-979-2967


Guns, Drugs & Real Estate…Be Safe, Not Sorry

Letting complete strangers tour your home is a little unnerving. It’s worth putting some thought into keeping your home and belongings secure throughout the process of finding a buyer. When preparing for an open house check with your insurance carrier so you know what your policy covers. Do you have enough insurance to cover any potential property damage? Do you have enough to cover valuables? Better yet, protect your assets by simply taking them with you during an open house. The FBI lists the most commonly stolen items as money (cash, checks and credit cards), jewelry, office equipment, clothing/furs, electronics, and firearms. It’s also recommended to take your passport, extra keys (home and car), prescription drugs, financial statements and social security cards with you. While your agent will be at the open house to monitor visitors, and create a log of who entered your house, it’s ultimately up to you to safeguard your belongings. It is always better to be safe than sorry.


How to Stage Your Home for a Quick Sale

Staging your house can make you money. Seventy-one percent of sellers’ agents (including me!) believe a well-staged environment increases the dollar value buyers are willing to offer, according to the National Association of REALTORS® “2015 Profile of Home Staging.” When I talk about staging your home, I’m referring to a method of decorating that is designed to showcase the home’s best assets, impress buyers and sell it quickly for the highest possible price. Although staging is optional, it really shouldn’t be.
