Home Preparation Ideas and Tips

by Sam Miller
Let me begin with some very basic yet very important concepts: #1. When your home is in "Top Condition" it will sell faster and for a higher price. #2. If the buyer smells cat or dog odors you won't sell it for top dollar and maybe not at all. #3. A home full of clutter and disorganization is a major turn off to buyers. #4. Clean, nice and neat homes that are well staged sells for higher prices than fixer upper homes. If the potential buyer feels that you love your home and if they believe you have taken good care of it you will be more likely to sell for a fair price, sell faster and have less issues with inspections and other inspection contingencies. However, homes that are simply listed for sale with no regard to the condition and are not show ready will sit, the seller will be forced to reduce the price over and over again in order to sell it. The best news is that preparing a home for sale is not difficult, it is not costly and is always worth the extra effort. If you want a faster sale for more money with less negotiating you will want to talk with me about my tops and methods for getting your home ready to sell. When I represent a home owner and after they have hired me to sell their home I work with them on ways we can make their house show it's best and appeal to the highest number of buyers. As part of my service to my sellers I provide a home preparation DVD called "Preparing Your Home To Sell" by real estate specialist David Knox. This DVD shows you tips and methods for making your house appear lighter and brighter, cleaner and it shows you how to give your home an advantage over other competing homes for sale. If you have ever watched shows like "Sell This House" you will truly appreciate this video. The real estate market is more competitive than every before anand it is important to take advantage of every opportunity available to you. Getting your home ready to show and sell and selecting a price that will attract ready, willing and financially capable buyers is what I do so if you want top notch representation give me a call at (740) 397-7800 or 1-800-282-9096.

Apple Valley Lakeview Home Marketed on YouTube Video Website

by Sam Miller
Apple Valley Ohio and the lake and golf course community is the perfect real estate community for attracting out of town buyings using the internet. I recognize that this market is expanding and the number of out of town property owners exceeds 2500 and that number is growing as more and more people discover Apple Valley. I have always marketed Apple Valley to the "out of town" type clients but today we are expanding our marketing to include Google and YouTube using video technology to produce brief video tours of our listings. These videos will be in addition to our 15 websites and we will continue producing the panoramic virtual tours specifically for and our other website marketing. Here is a new Apple Valley Lakeview listing that we created our first real estate video tour using both interior and exterior video clips showing full 360 degree views. Just click the play button on the video screen below and let me know what you think. My team and I will use and develop this technology to enhance the marketing of the homes we represent and we will attract more buyers who are unfamiliar with Apple Valley. Tell your friends about our new video feature and feel free to forward this video to anyone you know who you think would enjoy taking a video tour.
