- If at all possible, remove pets and take steps to remove hair and any smells associated with them
- Share what you love about the home - make notes or list the things your love about your home
- Always use a FULL TIME REALTOR who is committed to the industry, knows our market, and knows the right connections locally to get your home sold as fast as possible.
