Maximize Your Home's Potential

If you plan to list your house in the foreseeable future, you should do everything possible to differentiate your residence from the competition. That way, you can show homebuyers exactly what your house has to offer and increase the likelihood of a fast, profitable home sale.

Now, let's take a look at three tips to help you optimize your home's potential.

1. Boost Your House's Curb Appeal

Your house's curb appeal may dictate how quickly your residence sells. If you allocate time and resources to transform your home's exterior from drab to fab, you may be able to reap the benefits of a speedy home sale.

Mow the lawn, trim the hedges and perform other home exterior upgrades. By doing so, you can take your house's curb appeal to new heights.

Also, if you need assistance with home exterior projects, you can reach out to local home improvement professionals. Contractors are available in cities and towns nationwide, and these professionals can help you enhance your house's curb appeal in no time at all.

2. Remove Clutter

Clutter is an eyesore that home sellers need to eliminate. Because if your home is overloaded with antiques, decorations and other items, it may be tough for homebuyers to envision what life may be like if they purchase your residence.

If you own lots of items but want to keep these belongings, there is no need to worry. You can always rent a storage unit where you can store various items until your house sells. Or, you can contact family members and friends to find out if they can store some of your belongings for the time being.

On the other hand, if you want to get rid of assorted items, you can host a yard sale or sell items online. This will enable you to simultaneously remove clutter from your house and earn extra cash.

3. Conduct a Home Inspection

Identifying home problems sometimes can be difficult. Luckily, home inspectors are available who can analyze your residence and offer valuable property insights.

Typically, a home inspector will review your residence over the course of a few hours. The inspector then will provide you with an inspection report that details his or her findings. If you analyze the inspection report closely, you can gain comprehensive insights into your house's strengths and weaknesses and prioritize home improvements.

If you need help finding a home inspector or completing other home selling tasks, you may want to hire a real estate agent as well. A real estate agent will help you revamp your house both inside and out and ensure your residence stands out to property buyers. Perhaps best of all, a real estate agent is happy to respond to any of your home selling concerns and questions, at any time.

Maximize your house's potential – use the aforementioned tips, and you can update your residence and differentiate your home from the competition.

 I grew up on a family farm just outside of Weiser, Idaho, then moved to Moscow to attend the University of Idaho and stayed for 33 years. I moved back to southern Idaho in 2016 and look forward to expanding my relationships down here. I hold a B.S. in Agricultural Economics, and a M.Ed. in Counseling and Human Services.

I am married to Charles (Buck) Sawyer, and as a blended family we have four adult children between us. We love to travel, bike, kayak and snowshoe while enjoying time with friends and family. We recently moved from Eagle to Wilderness Ranch just off Idaho State Highway 21. We feel fortunate to have experience across all of southwest Idaho.

I obtained my Idaho real estate license in 2003 and went to work at a boutique brokerage in Moscow. After 4  successful years, I along with 3  partners established RE/MAX Connections in Moscow in 2007. I bid farewell to them the end of 2016 and moved to Boise to join my husband and establish Sawyer Home and Land. Exciting times! It’s good to be home.....

Business Approach: As your Agent and Broker, my job is to assist you in achieving the goals of your transaction (price, timing, etc..). I will do my best to help you find the right property for you and your family as a Buyer, or present and market your property effectively as a Seller. I have expertise in negotiating the best price and terms, and guide the process and paperwork to a successful conclusion. Unlike many agents I do not represent both Buyer and Seller in the same transaction (dual agency, or double-ending). I cannot effectively give both parties the benefit of my experience if I try to represent both at the same time.

My listing fee is no more than 5%, and always negotiable. As a local full service brokerage, I provide excellent market presence and exposure through several forms of internet and print advertising, photography, signage, Intermountain Multiple Listing Service, and more. As a local Owner/Broker I can control and direct the marketing according to your needs rather than a national model.

Let my experience and dedication work for you!
