My Promise To you
Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals you hire, you probably won’t meet me until your inspection appointment--after you've hired me. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and pricing. One thing that’s certain is that a home inspection requires a lot of work. Ultimately, a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s effort. If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort. This I promise you.

The Time Your Home Is On
There’s no telling exactly how long it will take to sell a home, but if you’re looking to relocate as soon as possible, you’ve got to have a property that’s orderly and appeals to the masses. While this means investing some cash — and time — keep in mind that any positive changes can help to increase the value of your home so it’s money well spent. Ahead, some of the top home improvement projects to help you sell quickly.
A dirty home is an eyesore and turnoff, making it extremely difficult for a potential buyer to envision themselves living in chaos. With that in mind, give each room a deep clean that includes walls, baseboards, ceiling fans and lighting fixtures. It’s not uncommon for home shoppers to peek in cabinets and closets, so make sure those are orderly, too. To make the process a bit easier on you, consider investing in a cordless vacuum. Not only does this type of model prevent tripping, but it’s lighter and has a more powerful, deep cleaning suction, thus making the process less time-consuming.
Real estate agents nationwide say more than half of buyers are looking for an energy-efficient home, according to a survey conducted by the National Association of Realtors (NAR). While you need not convert your entire abode into a green palace, there are some easy and inexpensive tweaks you can make to appeal to this group. For example, build a clothesline, install a tubular skylight, place a recirculating pump under the sink, insulate hot water pipes, plant deciduous trees, install a programmable thermostat, replace can lights or install aerators on faucets.
Create A ‘Wow’ Factor With Landscaping
You don’t have to have a green thumb to attract potential buyers who do. There are several easy projects you can do in a weekend afternoon that will up the ‘wow’ factor — especially when it comes to first impressions. Install some sturdy edging, create an attractive focal point with a bern, build a flagstone wall, install a path, build a tree surround, or plant shrubs and flowers in attractive pots.
Enhance Rooms With Crown Molding
Not only is crown molding an attractive feature that polishes the look of a room, but it’s also a top project for increasing the value of your home. While it’s not the easiest DIY in the world, it’s not impossible. The hardest part is cutting the corners, so make sure you invest in a good coping saw.
Paint For Appeal
Whether it’s interior or exterior, paint color can make or break a sale. Opt for soft, neutral tones on the inside (bold colors signal a repaint to a potential buyer), and consider removing any loud or dated wallpaper and replacing with paint instead. Unless your exterior is peeling or is in a non-traditional shade such as pink, robin egg blue, or orange, any neutral hue is safe.
When it comes to getting your abode ready for an open house, make sure you declutter and depersonalize each room. Next, consider hiring a professional stager to make your property look picture perfect. Along with highlighting the positive aspects of your home and disguising the less desirable, these pros also bring in props such as accent furniture, lamps, florals and decor to ensure each and every room looks fresh and polished. Just be prepared not to take any changes personally.
Staging is about targeting a specific lifestyle and demographic — not about creating your dream home. The ultimate goal is to make it easier for potential buyers to imagine their life in the space so you can get on with yours in your new home.
