Should you hide any and all evidence of furry family members when listing your Silver Spring, MD home for sale? Selling you home takes a lot of preparation, more so when you are a pet owner. It's best to remove all evidence, deep clean, deodorize, eliminate any evidence of puppy training and accidents, and repair visible damage. It's also a good idea to take down puppy gates. Nobody wants to climb over them or figure out the locking mechanism. These are non-negotiable and help make your home appealing to pet owners and non-owners alike. When temporarily relocating your pet is not an option, then you should spend an extra few minutes in the morning collecting all toys and supplies in a basket and storing them out of sight. Do plan on doggie daycare for the first few days. Your pets shoul...

When I begin working with a new seller, I immediately put their neighborhood or zip-code on my watch list (if it isnt' already on it), and pay close attention to any new activity. When new listings pop up that are very suitable comps, I'll make an appointment to preview. Comps and credibility are not only important when talking to clients, but also when it is time for the appraisal. I make every effort to meet with the appraiser in person and will present pertinent information that the appraiser may otherwise not be aware of. By doing my homework, I am in the best position to share information that supports the value of my listing. I am able to explain why I disregarded one comp that looked so perfect on paper, or made bigger than usual adjustments for another. I am not only relying on ...

At the end of last year I was working on a particularly challenging transaction, the kind that will stay with you for the rest of your career. The kind that becomes a cautionary tale and may have caused a few gray hairs to appear. The kind that makes you question (once again) if our industry standards are too low and what ever happened to broker supervision? At this point, I could go on a rant and tell you all about this particular listing agent's conduct, before, during, and after the transaction, the hours I spent hunting down documents, answers, responses, and the many, many calls with my buyers, my broker, our fabulous loan officer*, and the title attorney. But I choose not to. Instead, I want to share with you what popped up in my inbox just as we were in the thick of it, at the ve...

Today I toured the prettiest 1940s Cape Cods in close-in Silver Spring, MD. Cape Cods are among my favorites... as are most homes built pre-1960. They have a charm that you just cannot find in new(ish) construction, nor replicate.  Driving from one listing to the next, I spotted this springy ray of sunshine pictured above, laughing right at me with its vibrant exterior and welcoming curb appeal. I love painted brick - although I probably would choose a color that is not quite as bright, this one caught my eye and just made me smile. Doesn't it look like love and laughter live there? This house is not currently for sale, but if it were, buyers would remember it, no doubt... the happy yellow house! It would also be under contract within days, and probably sell (well) above list price. Cap...
