Your family is growing… You got a great promotion… The value of your current home has skyrocketed… They’re all good reasons for making a move. Maybe the kids have left home—or you just want to try someplace different.
No matter why you’re thinking about moving, you’ll want to start by talking with a professional real estate agent, who can give you an idea of what your current home might be worth and any changes that might make your home more marketable. Staging your home—adding a fresh coat of paint, cleaning out clutter and arranging furnishings to show each room at its best—can often help you get a better price. So can sprucing up landscaping to add “curb appeal”.
When you list your home with an agent, that individual works on your behalf to market your home to potential buyers—so it’s a very important relationship. Be sure to select someone with a track record of success in your area—and a solid knowledge of pricing in your local market. Real estate agents who are affiliated with larger firms can promote your property to colleagues or peers in their organization who might have clients who are looking for a home just like the one you want to sell.
It’s also a good idea to get prequalified for a mortgage, so you know how much you’ll have to spend when you start looking for you next home. The agent who is selling your home can help you find just the right place, or you may want to work with someone who specializes as a buyer’s agent.

What Our Customers are Saying
I wanted to take a quick moment and let you know about my experience with one of your associates, Ruth Falcone. My wife and I started out looking at options for a new home, how much we could afford, etc. In the span of less than 2 months, we went from a mere dream of moving into a bigger home, to the reality of making settlement this past Monday. Ruth could not have been more attentive, approachable, easy to work with and quite frankly made me feel as if I were the most important client in the world to her- She even provided us with assistance on an offer we wanted to make- and it was 1am.... I am not kidding. No matter what the question was, she was always there with the answer. Her dedication to her profession was what has enabled me to navigate this otherwise potentially stressful road to owning our dream house, and she made it easy. She is, by far, not only very professional, knowledgeable, and easy to work with, but clearly took a true ownership in seeing us through this process- I am a General Manager for Marriott International. I earn my living through making people happy, comfortable, making them feel at home when they are on the road, away from their true "home" , which is often stressful to travelers. I have to tell you- Ruth is a rare breed. All too often people get shuffled through processes and are just another file on a desk- What you have in Ruth Falcone is a true treasure & I felt the need to share my experience with you both- Have a great evening & thank you.~ K. & K.
