6 Step Guide to Selling Your Home

Prepare your home to sell -  Acknowledge that all markets are different.  What may be a Seller's Market in Indianapolis may be a Buyer's Market in Fort Wayne.  Each market is different.  Look at homes that have sold in your area.  Get a feel of market times.  Check various resources such as Realtor.com or Mibor.com for sold information.   We recommend getting a home inspection completed prior to listing your home for sale.  This will prepare you for any issues that may arise or scare buyers off prior to listing your home.  Clean up and clean out!  This is one of the most important things to do.  Get rid of all that clutter!  If you haven't used it or touched it in 6 months then it needs to go!  We recommend hiring a home staging expert to get your home organized and ready for market.

Devise a Marketing Plan - Realtor or No Realtor - Sit down and decide which is best for your situation.  Some sellers like the "doing the grunt work" approach to selling a home.  Some sellers may be experienced in home sales and can do it all on their own.   Statistics show that Realtors net home sellers up to 10% more than going at it on their own.  Items to consider when considering selling your home are:  Title work, Appraisals, Contracts, Disclosures, and Marketing!  Selling...

Thanks Giving Spirit!

Thanksgiving is coming up this November 27. It’s a time when you enjoy each other's company, eat plenty of food and have a great time! In the spirit of Thanksgiving we should all be thinking of the wonderful gifts we have been given and express our gratitude in thoughts and actions. We are all aware of the traditional areas of thanks like; giving to those less fortunate, volunteering to help those in need, spreading words of kindness, supporting our troops, and expressing thanks for our good fortune. All of these are so very important in the realm of humanity.

We all love to know that we have something fun to look forward to over the holidays. So, start your planning now and extend the invitation to your friends, families or love ones ASAP! Sometimes, just anticipating the fun is as enjoyable as the real event. By giving a bit of your extra time and effort, you can bring a smile to anyone especially to those who are going through a rough time. You just might help to ease their "Thanksgiving Spirit."

We at The Indy Home Pros Team at RE/MAX Advanced Realty greets you A Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!...

Making Your Home Thanksgiving Ready

Are you going to be hosting Thanksgiving dinner at your house this year? If so, you are probably feeling a bit nervous, excited, and maybe even a little overwhelmed. You are looking to make this special holiday perfect and for all of your guests to be happy and full! Ultimately as much as you try to control things and have every little detail ready there will inevitably be things you miss and aren't thinking of right now. To help relieve some holiday stress here are a few little tips that can make this a holiday to remember.

1. Make a plan to tackle some cleaning: No one wants to host a holiday meal in a dirty or unkempt home. Start brainstorming a list of what needs to be cleaned, fixed, or put away. A list will help you to keep organized as well as keeping you in check for what needs to be done next.

2. Go grocery shopping now!:  Don't wait until the last second to pick up your thanksgiving ingredients. Going to the store now is a good way to avoid busy stores full of last minute thanksgiving shoppers. Shopping earlier will make you feel much more relaxed when the week of Thanksgiving comes.

3. Think of the cooking utensils you might need for you and your guests this holiday: Nothing is more annoying than making a full dish and realizing that you don't have the proper plate or platter to serve it on. Before you go out and buy a brand new cooking set make sure you've asked...
