Housing Quick Answers


What should you consider if you are selling your home? 

Keep in mind the following considerations to help the process go more smoothly:

Time Becomes Money -- Place your home on the market as far in advance as possible of purchasing a new one.

Check Your Curb Appeal
-- A home that's visually appealing and in good condition will attract potential buyers driving down the street.

On Inside
- Clean the entire house and remove any unnecessary clutter.

Go It Alone or Choose An Agent
- unless you are willing to do ALL of the work in selling your home, a real estate agent is a good buy.

Set a Fair Price

Seek Legal Representation
- a must if you are selling your home yourself.

Check with your Tax Consultant
