FOOD for THOUGHT

* Sellers, do you know the value of your home?

* When a buyer approaches you directly or a realtor brings a buyer directly to you, but your property ISN’T currently listed, that doesn’t mean you are getting the best deal. A buyer’s realtor represents the buyer, NOT YOU.

* It’s very possible your bottom line will be better if you list your home.

* YOUR REALTOR will have YOUR BEST INTERESTS at heart.

* When your realtor puts your home out in front of the entire MLS, more buyers will see it, and more may be interested in buying it. That brings the possibility of a higher price!

* Multiple offers have become commonplace in the Brainerd Lakes Area this year.

* Buyers have realized they need to act quickly and offer a good price when they find the home they’ve been looking for.
