What Can I Do To Prepare My Home For Open House?

After living in a home for a long period of time, sometimes there are details that are overlooked.

You do not realize something looks messy, worn, or out of style. It's a good idea to prep your home 

for potential buyers with small changes such as:

1) DeClutter knick knacks and place papers inside the end table instead of on top.

2) Paint the front door, sweep off the threshold and buy a new welcome mat.

3) Clear the kitchen countertops.  The mixer, dish drying rack and bucket with spoons and gadgets makes the kitchen look smaller.

4) Curb Appeal is important, clean up. Even just raking leaves out of the corners, deadheading flowers, trimming, shape up overgrown plants will help.

5) Check for animal odors or stale smells. Consider an afternoon to open all the windows for a few hours and have the breeze blow through.

What's the difference between a Real Estate Agent, a Realtor and a Broker?

A Real Estate Agent is someone who is licensed to help people buy and sell commercial or residential property.
They must be employed by a Broker. A real estate agent can also be a REALTOR®, which means they are a member of the National Association of REALTORS® and bound by the REALTOR® Code of Ethics.  Brokers are generally required to have more education and experience than real estate salespersons or agents.
