Here’s a few tips to help you improve your credit score so you can get into your dream home asap!


💸 Always pay your bills on time.
Set a reminder if you have to or just set your “mental reminder” a few days before they’re actually due.

You can do this by paying off your credit cards more often.


💸 Don’t open or close any accounts.
Yes, this includes your Target Red Card!

Is It Time To Sell My Home?


temp-post-image

You’ve been hearing about how much homes are selling for and you have a question. Is it time for me to sell my home?



Now as a real estate agent, I would LOVE to sell your home. HOWEVER, I want you to make sure you’re making the best choice for you.


It may be time to sell if…
🏠 you find yourself running out of space, even though you’ve constantly decluttered your home
🏠 the features or layout of your house no longer suit your lifestyle
🏠 you’re spending way too much time in the car commuting to work, driving to see friends/family on the other side of town, and more


If you’re saying YES to any of these things, it’s time for us to talk.


Let’s get to...

Gearing Up For Summer

Summer is right around the corner. As school lets out for the summer, let’s get your home in tip-top shape!



Pantry – Get rid of anything that is expired. Then chuck those granola bars you keep buying but never actually eat!


The Paper Pile – Yeah, you know what I’m talking about! Somewhere in your house, you have a pile of papers that you *need* to sort through and deal with but have yet to do so.


Closet – I love your idealism, but if it doesn’t fit, go ahead and get rid of it! If you haven’t worn it in 2 years, it can go too! For all your accessories, invest in some organization. This could be storage bins, over-the-door organizers, or something else!...

What is a Seller's Disclosure?


temp-post-image

A seller disclosure is a document the seller must give the buyer that discloses all of their knowledge of the condition of the property and any material defects.



If your home has any issues that you know of – whether you call it “character” or a nuisance – you have to share that information with the purchaser on the seller disclosure.


My advice? Don’t try to be the person who withholds information about their home. When the truth is revealed, it could lead to legal problems. *womp womp*


Have questions about what you do and don’t have to disclose on your home? Send me a message!

Be Willing To Compromise


temp-post-image

Wanna buy a home? You may have to make some compromises to find your next home AND get your offer accepted.



Here’s a few compromises you may want to consider…
🏠 What you MUST have in your home versus what would just be nice to have
🏠 How much you’re willing to pay
🏠 The condition of the home
🏠 Size of house & yard
🏠 Distance from family, friends, & work


I know that not everyone likes making compromises. However, if you choose to rent for another year, you’re going to be making way more compromises than this.


Remember that you don’t have to live in your next home forever. Once your lifestyle or the market (or both) has changed, you can always sell your house, cas...

Sellers Tip


temp-post-image

Want to know what one of the BIGGEST pains of adulthood is? Doing the dishes.
Seriously, the moment you finish washing all of them, a few hours later, there’s a whole new stack of dirty dishes!


It’s a vicious cycle that never ends!


Now sometimes, dishes can pile up and it’s not the end of the world.


However, if you’re having company over or maybe buyers or coming to tour your home 24/7, the last thing you want is having dirty dishes in the sink.


My recommendation? During times like these, go with paper plates that you can throw straight into the trash.


I promise, it’ll make life so much easier.


Tell me, when it comes to plates, are you Team Paper or Team Ceramic? Let...

How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Buyers Agent?

Imagine having someone on your team who can support you through one of the biggest transactions of your lifetime.


Now what if that someone didn’t cost a pretty penny?


When you are buying a home, having a buyer’s agent costs you absolutely nothing.


Seriously, you get all my awesomeness free of charge.


Generally speaking, my commission comes from the person selling the house you buy, not you.


Plus, here’s a few of the other “side effects” you get when you hire me as your buyer’s agent…


🏠 A powerful negotiator
🏠 Network connections throughout the industry to help you find the perfect home
🏠 A detective to search out the exact home you’re looking for...

What is Going on With Rising Interest Rates?


temp-post-image



Can I shoot straight with you? Mortgage interest rates are going up. They’ve jumped from 3% to 5% for a lot of buyers – yes, even well-qualified buyers. So what does this mean for you?


If you’re looking to buy a home, you need to lock in your interest rates NOW!


If you’ve been looking for a home with not a ton of success, talk to your lender to see what you can do to ensure your rates don’t skyrocket if/when you have to get pre-approved again.


Truth be told, I don’t know how high interest rates are going to climb. In the past they’ve reached 2 digits.


I know the market can feel tough right now but what’s going to feel even more difficult is gett...
