"Steph has a guy for everything." Whether it's conducting a home inspection, some basic maintenance in a house to prepare it for sale, or a new roof is needed, knowing who to call is important. Getting the work done in a timely manner is equally important. Our team has a complete list of trusted partners, true professionals we recommend for work you might need completed, whether it's before listing, after inspection, or after you move into your new home.
Selling a 100+ year old home can be anxiety provoking. Stephanie suggested a pre-inspection with one of our trusted partners. The Peters' current home in Pleasant Ridge was 126 years young. While they knew the roof was going to need to be replaced at some point in the future, they simply weren't sure if there were other significant issues that might come up, making it difficult to sell the house. With the new house on the line, they really needed to be sure before listing. Steph recommended they work with the same inspector looking over their new home and have them do a 5-pt inspection on their existing home, just to put their minds at ease. The Peters' advice, "When it comes to inspection, make sure you have somebody who has a good relationship with your Realtor and will do a thorough inspection of both homes (new and existing)."
Guiding you home.
Once they put an offer on their new home, it was time to sell their existing home in Pleasant Ridge. Marketing comes into play at this point and most Realtors list your home on their website, the Cincinnati multiple listing service (MLS), and other real estate websites. However, the way they share the information (photos, words, etc.) can really make all the difference. The Peters were impressed by what they saw, "What I was really surprised about was when she sent it to me, it was like a beautiful story. When I've looked at other sites there's just pictures, and a basic description. But the marketing for our home was telling a story of what you do living in a house. It gave you a real feel for the house."
