    Buyer Tip: Start at the beginning…Preapproval

     The past couple days, I shared some tips for sellers. Today, I'll share one for buyers. 
    It can be super exciting when the time comes to begin looking for the perfect house, particularly if this is your first time. Running right out and visiting a bunch of properties though isn’t really the best place to start. The process should begin by getting a mortgage preapproval before your hunt begins.

    A preapproval letter is a document from a lender that tells you exactly how much loan money you can get. It’s based on your financial information, such as your credit score, taxes, and bank statements. It is not a guarantee that the mortgage will get approved. There are other factors at play here including the property you’re looking at, but that’s a topic for another day.

    Getting a preapproval is going to help you, and your agent find properties within your budget. It also gives the sellers peace of mind knowing that you, the buyer, can afford ; ...

    Selling Tips: Depersonalize

    Here’s another quick tip for people looking to sell their house in 2022, and it kind of goes along with yesterday’s tip on storage. 

    Turn your home into a house. One of the most important things to do when selling your house is to de-personalize it. The more personal stuff in your house, the less potential buyers can imagine themselves living there. The general rule is to remove of a third of your stuff. Get a head start on packing family photos, memorabilia collections and personal keepsakes for your next home. I’ve even had a few clients who added a framed mirror, so it seemed like a photo of the potential buyer was hanging in the house.
    I provide a free staging guide to each of my clients that’ll help you with this process. The new year is right around the corner, email me and we can get a jump on the competition! 
    I’ll have a tip for buyers tomorrow.  ...

    Helpful Work / Real Estate Online Tools

    We live in a digital world lately, especially for many jobs that have had to convert their work systems to online. Part of that is always ensuring your files and emails are backed up, so you do not lose important documents, contracts and communication. We as realtors are required to save our documents, and our emails, for at least 3 years! CloudHQ has been extremely helpful in accomplishing this with ease!
    Staying organized is important to help keep our clients on track to meet deadlines and be able to reference what has been done or sent. To help with sorting and saving our emails, we always create a folder in Gmail for each property or client that we work with. Then any important emails that we receive or send, are then sorted into each email folder for easy future reference. 
    I was searching for an easier, cost efficient way to be able to save and back up our work emails, once we have completed a project or file. Since we utilize Gmail, I found this neat A ...
