The Best Homes Sell Fast!

Smart sellers understand that a proactive selling strategy can go a long way in getting their home sold quickly, and for top dollar. Here are three tips for today’s sellers:


  • Make your home shine. Buyers like to envision a home they can move right into. Clean carpets, fresh paint, and a nicely landscaped yard can go a long way to make perspective buyers feel at home.

  • Anticipate the selling season. Many sellers wait for the market to pick up before they place their home for sale, but smart sellers anticipate these seasonal adjustments and list their homes early in the sales cycle. Give yourself the best opportunity by placing your home on the market before everyone else does!

  • Price your home right. Markets change, so don't be influenced by last year's selling activity and home prices. We will evaluate your home based on the most recent sales data and price it to sell for the most money in the shortest amount of time.

Whether you're looking to sell today or are thinking of selling tomorrow, please feel free to call and ask for an analysis of our recent market activity. We would be more than happy answer any questions you might have.

Find the perfect schools for your kids in the Dallas/ Fort Worth Area!

From architectural design and size to amenities and outdoor living spaces, there are so many factors to consider when you search for a new home. If you have or are planning to have children, one of the factors at the top of your list should be local schools. Set your child(ren) up for success by moving into a home near a great school!

 

As a realtor, we can let you know about fantastic school districts. Luckily, there are so many top ranked districts within the Dallas-Fort Worth Area

 

Of course, all schools within these districts are not created equal. This is where your school work comes in! First, think about yours and your child(ren)s needs. What kind of structure does your student thrive in? Do you want to be actively involved in the school's community? After you know what you want in a school, you can begin to hone in on the best fit. Help narrow your search by finding unbiased rankings and data from websites such as GreatSchools.org, Niche.com, and U.S. News & World Report. Once you have done this, begin reaching out to individual schools. Find out about any awards and recognitions they have received. Ask to tour the facility and meet with the staff.


Know what local school you want your child to attend? Contact the experienced team at the Sturges Group to help you find your dream home within the school's boundaries. Give us a call today or visit our website at http://www.sturgesgroup.com/.
