Q: What is my property worth?
A: Pricing your property correctly is crucial. You want to sell your property in a timely manner at the highest price possible. Current market conditions determine the value. Pricing too high or too low can cost you time and money. Realistic pricing will achieve a maximum sale price in a reasonable amount of time.
Q: What do I need to prepare my property for sale?
A: Declutter, clean and fix any issues that may come up at a home inspection. See how to prepare the exterior and interior of your home for photography here.

Q: What is the commission you charge?
A: Commission fluctuates based on individual circumstances.
Q: What type of advertising will be done by your company?
A: With each property Anne Whiting Real Estate prioritizes and capitalizes on each advertising opportunity based on the unique and specific qualities of the home.
