How to Obtain Top Dollar for Your Home

How to Obtain Top Dollar for Your Home



If you are considering selling your home in the next 3-6 months, you are probably asking yourself questions like these:


  • Should I replace the tile counters in the bathroom with granite?
  • Does the wallpaper make the house look dated?
  • Is the cost of installing new kitchen cabinets worth the expense?
  • Do I need to put on a new the roof or can I just have it inspected and replace the deteriorated areas?
  • Is it necessary to paint all the interior walls, or would touching-up the obvious areas work just as well?
  • Would installing new carpets and/or refinishing the wood floors be worth the expense?
  • What about exterior paint—should I have the house painted before putting it on the market, or use that as a bargaining point in negotiating the sale?


These are all good questions. And none of them has an easy yes or no answer. Your home is unique, as is the neighborhood you live in.


Part of my expertise is helping sellers prepare their homes with the right improvements that bring in top dollar. I would be happy to stop by and do a simple walk-through to point out areas to focus on to improve your house’s market value—as well as what projects will not likely give you a good return on your money or time.  


There is no charge for this service. My goal is to be the neighborhood expert. The more neighbors I talk to and the more familiar I become with the homes in our neighborhood, the better level of service I can offer to families moving into our area.


If you are interested in having me doing this free walk-through to get your house market-ready, please feel give me a call or email me. I’ll also do my best to answer any other questions you have.


Best regards,
Ryan Gillen
