Why Work With an Agent & Modern Homes Los Angeles?

The details involved in home buying – particularly the financial details – can be daunting. As a real estate practitioner well-versed in local customs and requirements, I can guide you through the entire process and make your experience stress- and hassle-free. I know all about the important things you’ll want to know about your new neighborhood, including the quality of the schools, the number of children in the area, crime statistics, the best restaurants, and more! Working with an agent experienced in our local market is the surest way to secure the best investment in your new home.

I can help you find and tour homes both on and off our local Multiple Listing Service. I can also help you define the price range you can afford and remind you about those hidden costs and benefits of homeownership that you might forget to consider. With immediate access to homes as soon as they come on the market, I will save you hours of wasted driving-around time.

When it is time to make an offer, I will point out ways to structure your deal to save you money. I will explain the advantages and disadvantages of different types of mortgages, guide you through the paperwork and answer last-minute questions and concerns as you sign your final papers at closing.

Perhaps best of all, I have a complete Rolodex of trusted partners at your disposal, including mortgage professionals, moving companies, veterinarians, and a host of other professionals, to make your transition as smooth and pain-free as possible.
How much does all of this cost you? Not a thing! The seller pays for my services. But don’t worry about my loyalties – I am YOUR advocate throughout the entire process.

Maximizing Your House’s Exterior and Curb Appeal

As the adage goes, “you never get a second chance to make a first impression.” Nowhere is this more true than with home sales. Strong curb appeal can go a long way toward making up for other shortcomings. And don’t forget the backyard, too. A well-manicured front yard and a neglected back yard will make buyers wonder where else you are cutting corners. To enhance your house’s exterior and curb appeal, check the following and repair as necessary:

  • Have to Lawn Edged, Cut Short and Watered, and Make Arrangements to Have This Done Again Weekly While the House Is on the Market
  • The Same Goes for Trimming the Hedges, Weeding the Lawn, Weeding the Flowerbeds, and Pruning the Trees – in Front of the House AND Behind
  • Check the Foundation, Steps, Walkways, Walls, and Patios for Cracks and Crumbling
  • Inspect Doors and Windows for Peeling Paint
  • Clean and Align Gutters
  • Repair and Replace Loose or Damaged Roof Shingles
  • Repair and Repaint Loose Siding and Caulking
  • Make Arrangements to Have Somebody Clearing Walks of Snow and Ice as Needed
  • Re-seal an Asphalt Driveway
  • Close Your Garage Door and Keep It Closed
  • Remove Boats, RV’s and Unused Cars From the Property
  • Apply a Fresh Coat of Paint to the Front Door and New Hardware, if Necessary

Maximizing Your House’s Interior

Now that you have made a favorable impression on potential buyers with your beautiful curb appeal, don’t disappoint the interior. A few simple “touches” and “polishes” will again translate into favorable impressions and higher offers. To enhance your house’s interior, check the following and make changes as indicated:

  • Thoroughly Clean Every Room in Every Nook and Cranny, and Remove All Clutter, Including Excess Children’s Toys
  • Make Arrangements to Have a Professional Cleaning Service Come in Every 1-2 Weeks While the House Is on the Market
  • Items You Rarely Use but Intend to Keep Should Be Packed Up and Moved Offsite
  • Mend Cracks, Leaks, and Signs of Dampness in the Attic and Basement
  • Repair Cracks, Holes, or Damage to Plaster, Wallboard, Wallpaper, Paint, and Tiles
  • Consider Painting Dingy, Soiled, or Strongly Colored Walls With a Neutral Shade of Paint, Such as Beige or Off-white. Paint the Ceiling and Trim White for a Sharp and Clean Contrast. Neutral Colors Make Rooms Appear Larger and Help Prospective Buyers Picture Their Belongings in Your House. The Same Strategy Should Be Applied to Floor Coverings That You Replace
  • Replace Broken or Cracked Windowpanes, Moldings, and Other Woodwork
  • Inspect and Repair Your Plumbing, Heating, Cooling, and Alarm Systems
  • Repair Dripping Faucets and Showerheads
  • Buy and Display Showy, New Towels in the Bathroom(S) and Kitchen
  • If Your Kitchen Needs Major Updating, Give It a Lift With New Cabinet Hardware, New Curtains, and a Coat of Neutral Paint
