    Your Neighbors Might Not Give the Best Real Estate Advice


    Today I want to talk about why you should not get real estate advice from your neighbors. A lot of people that I talk to make comments about what their neighbors told them about buying or selling a home. Sometimes, the advice is good. Most times, it is not. 

    “The finer points of real estate should be handled by professionals.” 

    To be as nice as I can about it, the average Realtor only sells about three homes in their lifetime. On the other hand, we average three sales per month. It is fine to get some home prep or staging advice from your neighbors, but if you want to know any of the finer points, you should really be talking to a professional with a proven track record.

    If you have any questions for me about your home or the real estate market in general, please feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
