Buyer's Tip


This one is a toughie, but it’s SO important! I see a lot of buyers, especially those first-timers, get stuck on the cosmetics of a property. Here’s my insider secret: if you can change it in a weekend, it doesn’t matter.

Listen, if the house has a great layout, perfect location, and all the amenities you want, but it just doesn’t quite ~look right~, don’t worry about it. You can make it look amazing, I promise. And if you don’t want to put in the elbow grease, no worries! I have loads of connections that can get the job done for you. 

If you REALLY can’t see yourself moving in without a paint color changed or countertop switched out, we can include it in the deal negotiations. Some sellers are happy to throw in things like that if it gets their property sold to the right buyer. 

So buyers, pretty please with a cherry on top: don’t get stuck on the look of things. Cosmetics are the most easily changeable thing there is in real estate. 

When you can look beyond the cosmetics and see the house in all its potential, you might find something you really love.
