Winterizing your home?

Selling your home in the winter could be the greatest strategy to get the best return on your investment, but there’s still some work to do. I’m Tania with itstheperfectspot.com. With inventory in the winter being lower, usually, it’s a seller’s market. But in order to get the most interest and the best price, there are some very simple things that you can do.

Number one, clear out the top. Cleaning your gutters and cleaning your roof are simple things that protect the house in the winter and help demonstrate to prospective buyers how you have cared for the home. Number two, insulate the attic. Walking into a chilly home is not appealing to buyers. If the attic is not insulated or if the insulation needs touch up, do it. It’s a quick, easy fix that’s helpful for both winter and summer months and could add value to your home. Number three, check your HVHC. Speaking of chilly homes, making sure your heating system is running effectively and efficiently not only will help buyers be more partial to a home that’s been properly maintained, but the home inspector will be checking it, too.

Number four, prepare your plumbing. In the cold winter months, your pipes can easily be vulnerable. Make sure any exterior faucets are shut off or sealed and wrap any exposed pipes with proper insulation, preventing freezing or bursting. The last thing you need when showing your home for sale is a plumbing problem. Number five, check the chimney. If you have a fireplace, make sure that it’s cleaned and free of any fire hazards. This is an easy way to give buyers peace of mind and you, too, can enjoy the homey hearth until the home sells. For more tips and tricks, be sure to reach out. I love being a resource and helping set my clients up for success. I am Tania with Harry Norman Realtors and itstheperfectspot.com. I’m ready to help you sell and find your perfect spot to call home.

Roswell’s Perfect Spot Top Producing Real Estate Agent & Lacrosse Mama IT'S THE PERFECT SPOT Hi, I’m Tania (pronounced Tan - like a SUN-TANya, not TONya). Not to digress, but I get this question all the time. My husband Doug & I have lived here in Roswell since 2002 and we have 1 son and 3 girls. All of them play lacrosse, so when I’m not out showing and selling houses, doing walk throughs, attending closing celebrations, taking continuing education classes, attending seminars, watching HGTV or jogging with my dogs, you’ll find me on the side lines of a lacrosse field cheering for my kids and their teams! I’ve been in Real Estate right here in Roswell since 2007. Currently, I average about 95%+ of my business comes from referral, so it’s critical that I connect with my clients from the beginning and spend some time discussing what their goals are, so we can create a plan that makes sense for them. I’ve been able to sell homes for more money and in less time than the average agent in Atlanta. That means your house is on the market for less time, so you can move on to your next phase of life... and have more money too! Being in the top 10% of all real estate agents in Atlanta, means I’m doing more business so I deal with the majority of bumps that can come up during a transaction so that we are better prepared how to handle anything that comes our way. This is the biggest investment for most of us, and I want this to be a great experience for you too! I’m not a transactional real estate agent, I’m a FULL - SERVICE RELATIONAL REALTOR®. I am here to help you and your family (including your family pets! ) through the entire process, well before it’s time to put your house on the market to sell or time to buy a new house, and well after we’ve close on your new perfect spot to call home. Sometimes we need to come up with a plan to save up for that dream house for a year or two or even work with my lenders to craft a credit repair or improvement plan so you qualify for a better loan option and rate. Often times, my buyers have to sell first, but they don’t want to put their house on the market before they find the perfect spot to call home and buy. So we have a vicious cycle of not enough homes (or the right homes) on the market when you need to buy. Don’t worry, this is where my networking skills really help you out. I keep a secret list of homes not on the market. And many times, you can tell me a specific neighborhood you want to live in, and I can FIND someone who might consider selling to you. I go the extra mile to make sure we find or sell your perfect spot to call home. I’m your life time real estate advisor! Many referred to me as the high energy Roswell Real Estate Expert. It's where I live, work and play!
