The Best Complement my Customers can Give me is to Refer me to a Friend.
As always, I want to thank you all for your referrals! Referrals are the largest source of new clients for me, and I appreciate that you trust me to handle the Real Estate needs of your friends and family. Thanks again for keeping me in mind when the conversation turns to real estate!
 
Oil Boom coming to Laramie County?
Speculation on oil production in Eastern Wyoming’s Niobrara Shale resulted in another record state lease sale of $49 million dollars. This lease sale auctioned off the rights to drill on 72,011 acres, the majority in eastern Wyoming. To access these oil deposits, multi-stage “fracking” must be used. Go to www.northernoil.com/drilling.php for a great video on this process.
 
5 Things to do Before Putting Your Home on the Market
 
1. Have a pre-sale home inspection. Be proactive by arranging for a pre-sale home inspection. An inspector will be able to give you a good indication of the trouble areas that will stand out to potential buyers, and you’ll be able to make repairs before open houses begin.
2. Organize and clean. Pare down clutter and pack up your least-used items, such as large blenders and other kitchen tools, out-of-season clothes, toys, and exercise equipment. Store items off-site or in boxes neatly arranged in the garage or basement. Clean the windows, carpets, walls, lighting fix-tures, and baseboards to make the house shine.
3. Get replacement estimates. Do you have big-ticket items that are worn our or will need to be replaced soon, such your roof or carpeting? Get estimates on how much it would cost to replace them, even if you don’t plan to do it yourself. The figures will help buyers determine if they can af-ford the home, and will be handy when negotia-tions begin.
4. Find your warranties. Gather up the warranties, guarantees, and user manuals for the furnace, washer and dryer, dishwasher, and any other items that will remain with the house.
5. Spruce up the curb appeal. Pretend you’re a buyer and stand outside of your home. As you ap-proach the front door, what is your impression of the property? Do the lawn and bushes look neatly manicured? Is the address clearly visible? Are pretty flowers or plants framing the entrance? Is the walkway free from cracks and impediments?
