We couldn't have asked for a better agent! You were very honest and realistic. You worked very hard to get our home sold in the time frame we asked. We will recommend you to anyone buying or selling a home!

The story of The Heritage Home Team begins several years ago with a young woman who had a passion for personal finance. Crystal wanted to learn how the average American grew their wealth. What her studies always brought her back to was that Americans that owned homes were wealthier and more ‘comfortable’ then Americans that did not own their own home.
But, it’s not just about moving into any home. It’s about finding a home of good quality in a good area that will continue to appreciate year after year. This is what Crystal and The Heritage Home Team pride themselves in: finding a good quality home, in the target price range, in the available time frame.
How does this apply to you, the seller? Whether in a seller’s OR buyer’s market the best way to sell your home is by appealing to potential buyers; to make sure they can see themselves living in your home, not wondering who currently lives there. My job is not only to help you price and market your home aggressively – it is also to view your home through the eyes of a buyer, from the very beginning.
The Heritage Home Team also prides itself in being ‘green’. You’d be amazed at how wasteful a life on the go can be. The Heritage Home Team drives hybrid cars, only prints when needed – and double sided if possible, saves files in electronic format instead of paper format, shys away from prepackaged products, and is learning how to be greener every day. The little things add up!

When selling your home, you want as many people to come through your home as possible. But what happens when you’re given short notice? Here are some tips that will allow you to have that last minute showing and keep your sanity.
1.Visual – People are very visual creatures. You want to make sure there is nothing that would detract from your home. If it’s during the day, open all of your blinds and curtains – make it bright and cheery. Check to see if all of your lights are working and that the light bulbs aren’t burnt out. Try to keep clutter to a minimum when selling your house. Ensure that dirty dishes are out of sight. ‘Tuck away’ pet accessories (dishes, leashes, food, toys, etc.)
2. Smell – Infuse your home with a comforting, light scent – like clean cotton, apple spice or vanilla. Candles or room sprays are a quick way to accomplish this.
3. Sound – Play some quiet background music. Turn off all TVs.
4.Touch – Make sure the temperature is comfortable depending on the seasons. In the winter, a nice crackling fireplace can add a lot of ambiance.
5. Taste – A nice touch is to have a bowl of candy by the door with a thank you note.
6. Leave – It’s never a good idea to be present when your house is being showed. It can make the prospective buyer feel rushed and uncomfortable. If possible, take your pets with you. If you are unable to take them with you, secure them outdoors, basement or garage.
