Pricing Your Home

How to Get the Price You Want (and Need)
When you decide to sell your home, setting your asking price is one of the most important decisions you'll ever make. Depending on how a buyer is made aware of your home, price is often the first thing he or she sees, and many homes are discarded by prospective buyers as not being in the appropriate price range before they're even give a chance of a showing.

Your asking price is often your home's "first impression", and if you want to realize the most money you can for your home, it's imperative that you make a good first impression.

Hopefully the Ground Hog Got it Right…

I am sitting here at my computer thinking of how grateful I am for the value that so many people, like you, bring to my real estate business. I’m looking out my window and there is not a cloud in the sky. The temperature is 79 degrees and my tee time is an hour away.   Unfortunately, I had to come to San Diego to see this.
