Preparing Your Shrewsbury Home For Sale, Don’t Forget Windows

From-Manse-kitchenSHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – When preparing your home for sale it is important not to forget your windows.  Make sure your windows are clean operable and that the screens are in place and void of holes.  Windows are the eyes of your home, they showcase any views you may have, let in light and improve ventilation. Most of us would prefer to be outside as much as possible but certain times of the year can make this hard.  Windows allow us a glimpse of the outside regardless of the weather.  We can watch the sun rise, rain and snow fall, wind blowing, and leaves falling from the comfort of our homes, appreciating Mother Nature whether we are reading a story to the kids, cooking dinner, or relaxing by a fire. Buyers can picture themselves appreciating the view from every room in your home and it is of the essence to show this view off as much as possible.  If you do not have a view from a particular window a window treatment could make a big difference.  An attractive fabric or perhaps a shade that lets in light but blocks and unattractive view could be in the cards. Whatever you do to prepare your home for sale just remember that windows are your home’s segue to the exterior of your home.

According to data from an independent auditing firm, the average sales volume for agents in Massachusetts in 1998 was approximately 7 Homes Sold for the year.

The “Top Producers” were those responsible for approximately 20 annual home sales. These agents are a rare commodity in and of themselves. Many companies consider themselves fortunate to have even one agent at this level of 20 Home Sales Annually.
In past years, Steve Levine was involved in over 100 transactions….
To find a way to say that without it seeming like bragging is hard…but rest assured that there is a great deal of experience, intellect, and innovation behind the scenes of this web site.

By the way….a common question is “Is Steve too busy to provide us with the level of service we need?” The Answer is “No!” In 1999, of the 100 transactions Steve was involved in, many were referrals from past clients and business leaders. Each and every one of Steve’s clients is left feeling as though they were the only client he had, and the single most important he will ever see. If they weren’t treated that way… those referrals would dry up very quickly…..

The secret lies in Steve’s ability to surround himself with a team of Top Professionals and to have the market insight and innate foresight into his clients needs to find them the right home or help them sell their current home in as efficient a method as possible.
