Room painting basics

The Basics to Keep in Mind:

  • Properly prepare surfaces by patching holes and sanding imperfections. Apply a primer to your wall as well.
  • Apply paint and glaze in small sections, completing one wall at a time.
  • Almost all completed walls, furniture, etc. that you have faux finished should have a protective topcoat applied.

I have sold my home before I move

Anyone who has ever purchased and sold homes at the same time knows how stressful it can be. Perhaps the biggest concern is whether or not you can sell your current house before moving into your next. If you do find yourself in that situation, there are some options you can consider.

If you do not have to sell your house in order to buy a new home, consider renting your existing home to create reliable monthly income. If you need to sell your house to purchase another, you may have to secure special “bridge” financing from a lender.

Give us a call for further ideas and options, we are here to help. Rich and Gin

Pocket Listing

Occasionally we are asked by a seller if we would consider a “pocket listing”. Basically a pocket listing is to bring by a prospective buyer to a seller without the actual listing agreement in writing. This is very likely a for sale by owner looking for some added exposure and maybe offering a discounted broker’s fee. A more successful way to market and sell you home if with the many benefits of legally listing your property for sale. The largest benefit being the muliple listing service that includes extensive listing databases, forms, maps, mobile tools and more used daily by agents and their buyers. For our sellers we have the newly renovated  staging.cedarcity-realestate.com to offer the most up-t0-date site.

Video Spokesperson on the Web

Real Estate Video Marketing

We have recently found a new company that is in pre-launch and helping every online business owner improve lead generation and improving the way we interact with our customers online. The new company is called IUSHER.

IUSHER has a bunch of new software tools that they have created to make it possible for a website owner to record themselves either through audio or video and give their website a voice. The video spokesperson application is my favorite and it really does give a internet business owner the ability to speak their customers when they come or leave the website.

Their are a lot of people that are looking at Cedar City real estate and this new company will allow us to interact more with our customers as well as capture more leads so that we can help more types of people find Cedar City homes.

This will help a lot of real estate agents increase online sales as well as be able to see what their customers are really looking for with an exit survey.
