Ross, Ross, & "more Ross": Spotlight on Ross!

Take the Necessary Steps to Prep!

2023 Before & After Highlights Reel

Sellers tend to pull back investing in their homes in a high-interest rate market. The inclination is to not spend money to get a higher price as sellers fear that they may not get offers. Having worked in three prior challenging markets, I can tell you without doubt that it is critical to invest in pre-listing prep for your home in this market and ANY market. My formula provides a 3 times return on investment for cosmetic improvements that create immediate equity for you as a seller. Check out my quick video above on how transformative these improvements are.
