--  REAL ESTATE TIPS  --


WHEN SELLING YOUR HOME, let me provide you with sales comparisons to determine the market value of your home.


WHEN SELLING YOUR HOME, you will want to have it listed prior to beginning your search for a new home.     


WHEN SELLING YOUR HOME, have an objective eye and pack up those non-essentials early.  Buyers may consider unnecessary items as clutter.


DO YOU HAVE CASH ON HAND for an earnest-money deposit?   While it is not required by Alabama law, buyers usually will not entertain an offer without a check showing good faith. 


WHEN BUYING A HOME, do pay for a home inspection.            


WHEN BUYING A HOME, use a qualified technician if there are any issues with the heating and air systems.


WHEN BUYING A HOME, have the roof inspected by a qualified roofing contractor if there are any issues found in the home inspection.     


WHEN BUYING A HOME, pay for an updated survey if anything has been added to the property; such as, bushes, trees, a fence, or an outbuilding. 


CONSIDER USING THE SERVICES of a professional real estate agent. Why?  75-80% of all homes are sold by Realtors.
