Relocating? First Time Buyer? Seller? Whatever your needs, I can help!

As an agent who's an expert in Morris and Warren County, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate in this area. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information.  Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Selling a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will highlight the best features of your home, Make it stand out on every website with professional pictures, show your home to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Consulting on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

For Example, when many people sell their homes they focus on painting, carpeting and other interior improvements. It is important to remember that first impressions can make or break the deal, and exterior upkeep and repair are just as important as how the rooms on the inside look, perhaps even more so. Make sure your yard is in good order. If there are leaves on the ground, make sure you clean them up. If there are bare patches on the lawn, make sure you seed and repair them. You may want to plant flowers or decorative shrubs to add to the aesthetic value of your home. Properly placed foliage can work wonders for a lackluster yard. Make sure there is no debris or clutter laying about the yard. This can greatly diminish your home's curb appeal and give potential buyers the wrong impression. It is important to display the sense of a well-maintained home, not a fixer-upper. A well-maintained, well-manicured lawn is sure to impress potential buyers that visit and leave them with the right impression

Can I Sell My Home Short

If the market value of your home is less than what you owe on your current mortgage, you may qualify for a legal, lender approved solution known as a Short Sale. A Short Sale can be accomplished by negotiating with your bank to accept a sale of your property to a third party buyer for less than what you currently owe on your mortgage balance. I am a trained short sale real estate agent who will show you the process.
