Getting Your House Ready - I can provide you with the information you need


If you're a Seller and want to get the most money for what is probably your biggest investment, you may need to look at your house with fresh perspective.  You want your house to be appealing to your potential Buyers.  Sometimes an objective viewpoint helps.  

Call me for a no cost, no obligation consulation on what you should do and more importantly, what you shouldn't do to get your Greater Hamilton Area home ready to Sell.  A mistake many Sellers make is to over improve their home.  It is not a good financial decision to spend $ 40,0000 to get $ 10,000 back.  Ask me, I can help!
