Real estate is a big part of my life, and I’ve moved many times. I know it’s a nightmare, so today I’m sharing five tips to help ease your moving headaches:

1. Compare the cost of professional movers versus doing it yourself. It’s your choice to hire professionals or move everything yourself. There are pros and cons to each option. A complete moving experience that includes packing, hauling, unpacking, and removal of trash is not affordable for most. The expense is a major drawback. If you do choose to hire a professional moving company, you need a company that is bonded and insured. It’s always good to get multiple quotes, too. 

When moving on your own, if you break it, you buy it. Watch for the hidden costs because some truck rentals don’t include unlimited mileage, and you’ll have to pay for things such as gas, packing materials, and boxes. There is also a huge time commitment involved with this route. 

2. Plan your packing. Be sure to gather chargers, power cords, extension cords, and basic tools to assemble things in well-labeled boxes. Kitchen essentials are another important box. Don’t forget toilet paper or paper towels!


There are plenty of tools to help you ease the literal weight on your shoulders.

3. Purge. Use this opportunity of decluttering your home to create areas for things you’re not taking with you. Donate the stuff you can, and trash the rest. 

4. Use the garage as a holding area. You’d be surprised at how much room boxes and packing materials take up in your house. You will need space to maneuver. Rather than having things everywhere, use the garage or spare bedroom for a staging area to make the job easier.

5. Lift properly. Use your legs, not your back! You don’t want to be moving with back pain. Make sure you stretch beforehand as well to further minimize the risk of injury. There are plenty of tools to help ease the literal weight on your shoulders, including dollies, hand trucks, moving straps, gloves, back braces, furniture sliders, and much more.

Which 5 Mistakes Should Sellers Watch Out For?

During the home-selling process, preparation is key. Avoiding these five mistakes will make the process a lot smoother and help you to sell quickly and for top dollar:

1. Picking the wrong agent. If your child needed surgery, you’d want a surgeon who has performed a lot of successful surgeries of the type you need, right? Unfortunately, the vast majority of real estate agents don’t sell a lot of homes. In fact, the average agent only sells about eight houses per year. By comparison, our team sold 677 homes last year. We can give you the advantage of having an agent with their finger on the pulse of the market and a solid marketing plan to get your home sold. 

2. Not getting your home ready for the market. No one is saying that you need to remodel your kitchen, but the little things can go a long way in highlighting your property. We can put you in touch with some great vendors and help you prepare your home to take fantastic photos. We’ve built more than 30 years of relationships that you can use to your advantage.


Our team can be the strong arm you need throughout your sale until closing.

3. Overpricing your home. These days, homebuyers are well educated and can find out anything they need to know about a home online. That’s why price is everything when it comes to marketing. Most buyers won’t even bother looking at a property if it’s overpriced. There is a magic window of time for selling your home; the longer it sits on the market, the staler it becomes, which will eventually force you to drop the price. We know the Central Pennsylvania market and we study the numbers every day, so we can put our 30+ years of experience to work for you from the moment you hire us.

4. Only considering the highest priced offer. The offer to purchase a home is 14 pages long, and the price is just one item on the document. We work hard to get our clients not only the best price, but also the best terms. Financing, inspections, and closing dates are just as important.

5. Getting too emotional. Always treat your home sale as a business transaction, even if you’re selling to a friend. Lean on your agent for the tough parts of the home sale—our team can be the strong arm you need throughout your sale until closing. I understand if you’re emotionally attached to your home, but when you sell it, you need to think of it as a property.

If making a move in 2021 is one of your goals, let’s have a conversation about how we can help. As always, if you have any questions about this or any other real estate topic, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Our listing and buying specialists are ready to help you.

I’m enjoying fall as we head into November and I hope you are too. It’s time for a quick fall market update for the Central Pennsylvania real estate market.

Over the course of 2020, you’ve likely spent more time in your home than in any previous year. Perhaps this sparked the idea of moving in your head. According to the National Association of Realtors, homeowners are living in their homes for an average of 10 years, which is significantly longer than the 6- or 7-year average that was the norm before.

Here are a few market statistics that might help you decide whether now is the time to move:
  • Inventory is down 46% from last year
  • Pending home sales are up by 28%, a clear indication that buyers are motivated
  • The average sale price is up by 10%
There’s no doubt that COVID-19 has created a lot of uncertainty in the world of real estate, but the adage that real estate never stops is still true. Homeowners still need to sell their homes, and buyers are still looking for their next home.

The good thing about real estate is that it is constantly evolving to become more convenient, accessible, and flexible. While certain occupations simply can’t work remotely, real estate professionals are resilient and adaptable. Trained agents were perfectly suited to complete most of their real estate transactions from home. 

The consensus among agents is that technology has been an industry life-saver. Our agents are able to help people buy and sell homes even under quarantine. While we were working from home, we continued listing, marketing, and selling homes.


Trained agents were perfectly suited to complete most transactions from home.

Our team is committed to making sure our buyers and sellers understand the real estate process and have trust in our ability to guide them through home buying or selling.

If you have any questions about how COVID-19 has affected real estate or you just have any real estate questions in general, don’t hesitate to reach out via phone or email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
