Tips that will get you more money when selling a home.


Rent a storage locker and remove all non essential/personal items while your house is on the market.

  • This will make the home both easier to clean and to maintain.

  • It will also allow you peace of mind to have your belongings far from any accidental damage during an open house

  • Allows future home buyers to envision your homes potential in their world.


Even if you plan to go over things… it is a good idea to hire a professional. The minimal investment in a professional cleaning service could end up returning your investment many times over.


Professional photos are a must. While it is true cell phones have come a long way in the last decade… nothing compares to a professional photographer. Poor quality will disappear into the background. Buyers are extremely savvy and they know what they are looking for. If you don’t have enough high quality photos… you may not get another look.

A professional photographers knows all the ins and outs of lighting, depth, and composition. Using the right settings, they can enhance the natural beauty of your home.

With the growth of technology in the real estate markets, many professionals can also offer virtual walkthroughs and drone flyovers of your property. These services all add extra value to the prospective home buyers and go a long way to bringing in top dollar.
