Home Buyer Competition Increases as Housing Sales Soar

Piles of Clutter? Here’s How to Get to the Bottom of Them

Should You Improve
Your House Before Listing It?
If you’re preparing to sell your home, you might be wondering if you should make repairs or improvements before listing it. The answer depends on the overall condition of the property, the type of buyer you want to attract, and the current real estate market.
If You Can’t Afford Repairs, Sell As Is
This applies to major issues like structural damage, plumbing complications, and electrical problems. Keep in mind that your buyer pool will most likely consist of flippers and contractors. While you might have to consider low offers, you won’t have to deal with the hassle and expense of repairs… Read More

by Bill & Carol
We saw a property in Shorewood that we were interested in – we contacted the broker we had been working with, but they didn’t call use back. We then decided to take a chance and call the broker who was listed on the property from the yard sign. Lisa answered the call immediately – she shared with us that she took our call, while she was in the midst of traveling and was actually at the airport! Her responsiveness, and subsequent attention to our needs was what we consider to be above and beyond the expectations of a potential client. She is very much involved with the inspection aspect of the property, which was key in avoiding a potential bad property purchase, saving us literally thousands of dollars. And a special shout out to Melissa Mathis who was there with us every step of the way. Big thanks and kudos to Lisa and Wenzel Select Properties!
