If you are a first time Buyer, this might be a good time to take advantage of historically low interest rates (fixed 5 year rate is under 2%) and buy your first home before the prices go up even higher.

If you need to sell, we can arrange for 3D Virtual tours to facilitate virtual showings to reduce the number of in-person showings.  The key in the present market is to price effectively and strategically market the property (call me and we will show you how), staging and presentation play a key role as well.

Please feel free to contact me if you would like me to provide you with detailed market statistics for your area or property.
