Getting a home ready to sell goes far beyond putting up a For Sale sign and snapping a few photos. Often, an agent has to put in a little elbow grease as well. Few know this better than Davidson Realty agent Suzy Evans.

 

When seller Rich Regan contacted Suzy at the recommendation of friends, she was ready with an arsenal of expert insights and time-tested resources to help him sell.

 

He knew right away he was in good hands. “Suzy sold me with her knowledge of condos in my area,” said Rich, who was looking to sell his condominium in the Avila community of Palencia.

Davidson agent Suzy Evans knows that selling a home—full of memories and cherished possessions—can be an emotional process. Her care in helping Scottie Keck to sell her home is a great example.

 

“Suzy is more than a real estate agent. She is really good in this area with her wealth of knowledge as well as the marketplace itself,” said Scottie. “She also brings a personal side that she feels what you are going through and understands this is a personal time of mixed sorrow and joy.”

 

Scottie and her husband purchased the St. Augustine home in 2014 with Suzy’s help. “After living in the area for two years, my husband passed. By this time, I had a good network of friends, which really made my life enjoyable.” However, after another three years, Scottie wanted to return to her roots in Texas to be near her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Lender Tip: Don’t wait to get preapproved!

Delaney’s Lender Tip:  Get preapproved with a local lender six months before you are ready to buy to be the most prepared!

 

Many buyers I work with contact me with just two months or so left on their apartment lease. We complete an application, they immediately start looking for homes, and they close on the new home around the time when their lease ends.

 

While there’s nothing wrong with this scenario, these homebuyers may be missing out on the benefits of getting preapproved further in advance. Here are just a few of those benefits!

 

Many buyers qualify comfortably without any problems. However issues can pop up when we review their credit score and look at any late payments, collections, etc. Many times they mention they didn’t know something was on their credit report that was pulling down the score, or they ask me how to get their score higher.

 

These are issues that can be mitigated by getting preapproved earlier.

 

While moving is not always planned far in advance, I always recommend buyers to do a preapproval and application around six months prior to house hunting. This allots time for us to tweak any items on the credit report and increase the credit score before going under contract.

Easy ways to boost your curb appeal…this weekend!

October 1, 2019

 | 

When home sellers think about improving curb appeal, it can be easy to get overwhelmed. New exterior paint? New landscaping and sod? New driveway? Sounds exhausting and expensive.

 

But it doesn’t have to be!

 

If you’re planning to sell your home in the near future but worry about the time and expense of enhancing your curb appeal, there are plenty of easy ways to spruce it up—without breaking the bank.

 

Here are six easy curb appeal enhancements you can knock out this weekend with a trip to the home improvement store:

 

1.) Pressure wash your exterior. For some jobs, a water hose just won’t do. Be sure to spray all surfaces including the eaves and driveway; just avoid easily damaged areas like caulking around doors and windows as well as roof shingles. Don’t forget to wash the fence as well! You will be shocked at how much a good washing can make your home sparkle. Home Depot rents out electric pressure washers for just $38 per day.
