As a homeowner, what home projects are worth your time, money, and energy to do this winter? 

We often see the end result of a homeowner spending substantial savings in areas of a home that did NOT improve their home's value for what they hoped it would yield. Check out our Do's and Don'ts list below! 



  • Repainting

  • Door Color 
    Black doors have proven to increase offer/sold prices of homes

It's that time of year when the market shifts and shows less inventory. With that being said, this IS the time to put your home on the market. Relocation buyers AND local buyers are motivated to buy especially if they have just put their home under contract or want to be in a new home by late winter or Spring 2020. The Holidays gives buyers more time and flexibility away from work to look at property. The reality is that the Gallatin Valley remains a highly desirable place to live. Lastly, we have seen average days on market decrease this fall.

Note: There can be flexibility to negotiate your closing date. While we can't guarantee this, it's possible.

Undecided if you should list your home for sale during the Holidays, or to wait until January? We are here to help you! Below are 10 reasons you should list your home now, instead of waiting.

While you probably wanted your home sold yesterday, I am sure you are feeling motivated to sell your home for top dollar. I am here to share my top questions that you should consider that I will answer before listing your home.


Zillow Zestimates are inaccurate especially in the state of Montana. So it is important to run appropriate property comparisons. Have you received a cost analysis (free, no strings attached) from an Agent to determine what your home is worth? A well-priced home will often generate competing offers and drives up the final sales value. A proper market analysis takes into account the most actively searched prices and home values throughout your area, including expired listings and properties still on the market.

Working with an experienced real estate agent has many more benefits than just the obvious smoother and more enjoyable buying/selling process. There are many advantages that experienced agents have that agents newer to the profession don't quite have.

  • Experienced agents have nurtured relationships with other important professionals such as bankers, lenders, contractions, inspectors, stagers, roof inspectors and so on. This is especially key if a quick close is preferred.
  • Experienced agents have access to important information. Such as being aware of encumbrances in desired subdivisions.
  • In result of working with the fluctuating market every day, we know precisely how long the closing process will take given current conditions. While no
