Getting your House in Order Before listing it!

September 30, 2010

Home value has become  a vital priority in the minds of today’s homeowners particularly in this volatile market.  Staging your home including decluttering can play a critical role in attracting buyers in making an offer.  In a market that is flooded with homes that are for sale, presentation becomes even more important.  It sets your house apart from the rest. As a professional realtor at Coldwell Banker Walden & Kirkland,  I offer a Re-Design Team that will view your home and will provide a report  that the seller could do to make the home even more appealing to the buyer.  I have truly witness this team’s talent and what great response I have had with buyers and buyer’s agents.  For more information Contact Mary Linda Cotten,
