Nationwide Open House April 20 & 21

Mark your calendars for Saturday and Sunday, April 20 and 21, 2013—and join REALTORS® and associations throughout the U.S. and internationally for a weekend open house. Coldwell Banker Tara Properties will join with other real estate companies on Whidbey Island to have a wide variety of homes available for viewing.

Please stop by one of our offices (Bayview, Freeland, Langley, and Oak Harbor) to pick up a map showing the location and times for our open houses. We look forward to seeing you!

Five Musts Before You List Your Home

Getting ready to put your house on the market? Carla Hill, in an article in RealtyTimes, outlined 5 things to consider before you list. To summarize:

1 – Organize your paperwork for past repairs and upgrades and any home warranty info.

2 – Get ready to declutter. Sort through and get rid of things you don’t need now so you won’t be rushed later.

3 – Clean, clean and clean some more. Dirty homes are a buyer turn-off. Wash, paint, refresh.

4 – Get an inspection. Identify areas that will need repair.

5 – Make repairs or get estimates. Be prepared.

Mark Your Calendars-Open House!

Next Saturday (10/29/11) we’ll be holding a big OPEN HOUSE at the two newly-completed Peregrine homes at The Highlands in Langley. Come out and see these fabulous new energy-efficient homes just a short walking distance to downtown Langley. The floor plans on these single-level homes are just right for Whidbey Island living. We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
