Here’s a quick note to let you know how I can help you or the person you feel
comfortable introducing me to.
Just like an annual physical, it’s important to do an “Annual Home Review.”
Your home may be your biggest investment so it’s critical to keep up-to-date on the
answers to these five crucial questions:
1. What homes near you have sold, and how does this impact you today?
2. What new tax laws give you deductions or credits on home improvements?
3. What’s happening in your neighborhood that will impact the value of your home?
4. What changes have occurred in your life that alter your goals for the next 5 years?
5. What’s occurring with your current mortgage? What changes could benefit you?
The next time you are in a conversation with a friend, family member or
neighbor who is talking about their home’s value, remember the future belongs to
those who prepare, and I am prepared to help you and the people you care about. Call
or text and we’ll start right away. Together we’ll make the future better than ever!

Carol and Nate were considering remodeling their kitchen in their lovely ranch home in Linwood, NJ. This older home had the original kitchen, closed off from the living room and dining room and had limited shelf and counter space. They consulted several builders and realized a new kitchen would cost then tens of thousand of dollars and they would still not have the open concept that they wanted.
Then they considered the option of purchasing a newer home… and even considered a 55 and over community. Carol and Nate, found me on my website and asked for my help. We quickly got their home listed and staged to sell and within two weeks we had multiple offers and accepted a full price offer.
From there they located a lovely newer home in Egg Harbor Township with a fabulous open layout and stunning kitchen. They sold their home and moved in to their new home on the same day.
So before you remodel your kitchen, consider upgrading the whole house. You may find that you’ll get greater value when you move up to a newer home.
Spring is hopefully right around the corner. I wanted to take a moment and look at last month’s sales data and update you on what’s happening in the market. With this update I am comparing a few statistics among different municipalities: Ocean City, Longport, Margate, Brigantine, Linwood, Egg Harbor Township, and Galloway, NJ.
As you can see sales, inventory and price varies greatly among each or these communities. The turnover ratio shows the percentage of homes selling in each city. The higher the percentage the more homes are selling each month.
The most commonly asked question I get is: “How’s The Market.” Experience shows it all depends on where you live. If you’d like to know How the market is in your neighborhood I’d love to do some research for you and send you an email that will tell you what homes are for sale now, what homes have sold recently and how long homes are taking to sell in your neighborhood so you can feel secure in the knowledge that you have the most accurate information. This timely information will tell you right away how your market is right now! I imagine that information would be of value to you, would it not?
Please contact me if you’d like to know what’s happening in your market. 609-338-3773.

Over the years I’ve helped many clients sell their home when they already have a buyer lined up. Typically I see this when a family member wants to sell a home to another family member. You may not need the full services of a Realtor however you need help with paperwork and making sure things are done correctly and in a timely manner. Many of my clients also wish to not have the liability risk that many For Sale By Owners Face.
I recently helped Amie purchase a home from her family.
One of the services I provide is as a Transaction Broker. In NJ a transaction broker doesn’t represent either side and helps in the transaction. For a small flat fee I can help with paperwork and guide you through the home selling and buying process. I’ll also give you access to my services directory with reliable vendors to help you where needed.
Remember when you have a home to sell and have a buyer already call me and let me help guide you safely though the home selling process. Best wishes,
P.S. If you or someone you know is selling a home and may need my help. Please call me now at 609-338-3773.
