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

A: Staging is important because it neutralizes the home. Home staging is a complimentary service here at Anne Whiting Real Estate.

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.
