NOTES from Donna Joerling, the Real Estate Coach from the big red comfy chair:

Check this out!  One of our neighbors in St. Louis, Missouri is one of the six finalists in House Logic's makeover contest.  Make your vote count.

You can see that adding, cleaning, decluttering and renovations are critical to the value and the appreciation of homes and buildings.  How does your house stack up to the neighborhood?  Are you neglecting the outside because of the extreme heat and lack of water?  Is it time for you to make a visit to your local hardware store and actually finish the projects that are waiting for your time and dedication?  Make it count, do it right, hire a professional if you want to make it look top notch.  When you are contemplating a sale on your property, call about 3 months in advance so we can talk strategy.  Timing the introduction of your house to the MARKET is critical and making it pristine at the time we introduce it is also very important not just to selling it, but maximizing the pricing as well.  Personal tidbits from the BIG RED COMFY CHAIR of Donna Joerling 314.808.1712
