On the fence about Buying?

One question that I always get asked is, "Is it better to rent or buy?" The answer is it's always better to own your home. So if you're on the fence, I wanted to share a few benefits of home ownership. 

Positive Financial Investment

When you buy a home, it's a long-term investment. Your home will appreciate, and its value will go up over time. When it's time to sell, you’ll make money on the sale. When you rent, you're paying for someone else's home to increase in value.

Tax Benefits

Yes! Owning your home can have tax benefits. For example, you can deduct items like the interest you pay on your mortgage and property taxes, and when you buy a new home, you can deduct the fees you pay that year.

Credit Score Boost

Buying a home and paying your mortgage on time can help you boost your credit score.

Consistent Mortgage Payments

If you have a fixed-rate mortgage, your monthly payments will stay the same, making it easier to budget. Over the years, you're paying down on your mortgage, not someone else's.

Freedom to Make Changes

When you buy a home, you can make any changes you want because, well, IT'S YOURS! So make the home improvements that you want.

These are five reasons it's better to buy a home than rent if you can afford to buy now. I would love to discuss the many other perks with you.

Selling Your Home for the First Time?


Summer is a busy time for those thinking about selling a home. Sellers have a lot to think about when preparing to put their home on the market. The market has shifted from the crazy pandemic market that you might have heard about. Houses are no longer getting multiple offers the moment they hit the market. If you’re considering a move and want to sell your home for the first time, here are a few things you should do and expect.

Create a Move-In Ready Home

If you want your home to sell, it must be in pristine condition. Make those pesky repairs that you’ve held off on. Clean and clean again. And bring your curb appeal to a new level. A first impression is critical for attracting buyers. You want your home to be “move-in ready.” 
Pro Tip: Hire an experienced agent that has all the resources to help you prepare your home for sale.


Take down any family pictures and any sports memorabilia. You don’t want to lose buyers because of a sports rivalry. You want your potential buyers to imagine their pictures and decor on the walls. 
Pro Tip: Hire a professional stager.

Set a Price That Will Sell

The last few years have been crazy for sellers. But the market has changed from what it was even a few months ago. So, be realistic about the current market conditions. Yes! Your friend or neighbor sold fast and for more than expected a few months ago. But that might not be the case now. 
Pro Tip: A Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) can give you an accurate update on home sales prices. I can help.

With interest rates rising and the market conditions leveling out, it’s good to ensure your home is in perfect selling condition. Use these tips to prep your home, whether it’s your first or last time selling. I’m ready to help you. Please call or text to schedule a meeting. I would love to discuss the value of your home.

Is Your Home Show Ready?

If you've ever sold a home or are thinking about selling your home, you'll always hear about staging and ensuring your home is "show-ready." These are very important, but unless you move out of your home while it's for sale, having a show-ready home is easier said than done. After all, life still must go on. So here are a few tips to ease stress and help you maintain a home that will wow potential buyers.

Keep Your Home Fresh

When your home is on the market, it's good to let it breathe. Open the windows and let air flow through your home frequently so that any smells you may be accustomed to won't turn off potential buyers.

Keep Toys Organized

Keeping toys organized is essential when showing, whether it's your kids or your pets. Keep a box or basket handy to put things away as soon as they're done playing.

Perform a Daily Cleaning

It's always nice to have clean countertops and floors, but when showing, it's important. Create a habit of performing a daily counter wipe-down and vacuuming when your home is on the market.

Keep Toiletries at Bay

It's easy just to lay your toiletries on the counter each day. But when you're showing, you need to put those items away. Seeing personal things on the bathroom counter or bedroom dresser is a turnoff.

Hide the Clutter

It's a fact of life; we all have clutter. But, unfortunately, when you're showing, you can't. So to combat the daily clutter battle, have a basket that you can quickly and easily pick up clutter before a showing. Gather it all in a basket and hide the basket in a closet.

​There's no doubt a bit of stress comes with selling your home. When your home is on the market, use these tips to help create a daily schedule that will keep your home show-ready. If you have questions about staging your home or are ready to move, I can help. Give me a call to set up a time to meet.
