These days, there is abundant information on pricing. While a website may be able to show you a potential value, that site doesn’t take into consideration all the important factors.

  • What are the trends in the market?
  • How is inventory?
  • What updates have or have not been done in your house?
  • When will you list?

Margaret will recommend a list price based on her extensive experience in the Reston market. She will also help you understand how buyers strategize their offers and what that will mean for you.

Margaret will meet with you in your home to walk through and make recommendations to prepare your home for sale. Very few, if any, of us live in our homes on a daily basis in the same way a home is best represented for sale.

She will help you determine if any repairs or updates are needed and help you find trusted contractors to do the work.

Margaret will go over the contract with you and be sure you understand the terms. Should a negotiation be necessary, she will help you decide how to respond and what, if anything, to change.

Once all changes are accepted, she will guide you through the transaction. No two transactions are the same, but Margaret has the experience to navigate any hurdles along the way.

Margaret will stay on top of deadlines, schedule necessary appointments and remind you about your responsibilities as a seller. She will be with you at closing to congratulate you on the sale of your home!

Just call! Margaret is happy to help.
