Preparing for the Buyer’s Eye

by Eddie Rangel, REALTOR

You only get one chance to make a good first impression!

Prepare your home as if you were having a large group of friends over for a special event. An open house can be a crowded event, so you’ll want to plan accordingly.

  • Consider having a professional service clean the home, including the carpets and the windows.
  • Set the dining room table with attractive linens, dishes, and stemware.
  • Arrange fresh flowers throughout the home and have a fire in the fireplace in fall and winter.

Thinking of making home improvements?

Thinking of making home improvements? Cover your bases with these simple tips:

• Educate yourself on the local permitting requirements, or your co-op or condo association’s policies.

• Hire licensed and bonded contractors for all of the work.

• Ask your contractor to provide you with copies of the permits (if required) at the time the work is being done.

• Post a copy of the permits in the front window to notify your neighbors that you are following the law.

And if you are wondering what improvements will pay off when you sell later on, please contact us give us a call!

Want an up-to-the-minute glance of your neighborhood?

We can set up a Compass Collection for you that will do just that!

Please contact us or call us and we can outline what types of properties you’re interested in and where you want your report to cover. We will set you up on Compass’ one of a kind platform to share immediate updates on market activity. We can even set up several if you would like so you can watch more than one area. You can receive updates weekly, daily, or in real time and you can unsubscribe any time if your interests change. This kind of information can help you avoid missing a property that might interest you, or it can help you stay on top of the level of market activity.

We are here to help!

No hidden fees, no interest charged – ever.

What if you could sell your home faster, at a higher price, without spending upfront on home improvements?

Exclusive to Compass, our Concierge program is designed to prepare your home for sale. From staging to landscaping to roofing repairs and other home improvement services, we’ll assess every opportunity to elevate your home’s value.

Once the necessary improvements have been determined, Compass will cover all costs, collecting payment for the services rendered at or after the time of the property’s closing. By investing in your home’s potential, we aim to provide a swifter, more profitable sale.

Optimism about the market

The average pencil is seven inches long, with just a half-inch eraser – in case you thought optimism was dead! — Robert Brault

One thing that is always true about the real estate market is that it is cyclical. Values increase and decrease over time, just like interest rates. Real estate markets are even influenced within micro- neighborhoods, meaning what happens on one block may not be occurring a few blocks over.

If you are wondering what is going on in a particular local area, please be in touch so we can do a micro-evaluation of that market for you! This insight can save you money and time when you are ready to make a move.
