We just wanted to take a quick moment to let you know about the upcoming Back-to-School Supply Drive that we’re hosting along with KTVF to benefit the children, families, and teachers in our community. 

We’ve partnered with businesses in Fairbanks such as Barnes and Noble, the United Way, and Walmart, and we’d love for you to help us by dropping off any school supplies to either our Fairbanks (728 Gaffney Road, Suite 100) or North Pole 71 Saint Nicholas Drive) locations. 

The list of supplies that are needed is right here on Facebook and includes things like crayons, tissues, headphones, and everything in between. The drive will be going on from July 29 to August 16 and we’d love for you to join us in making a difference. 

Selling Your Existing Home Before Buying a New One


If you need to buy and sell a home at the same time, there are four instances when it’s smarter to sell before you buy.

There are four specific instances when it’s smarter to sell your current home before buying a new one:

1. When you don’t want to risk carrying two mortgages. Speaking from experience, I can tell you that taking care of your family, paying your bills, and paying two mortgages at once is a tough task. 

2. When you can’t qualify for two mortgages. If you have to carry two mortgages, your debt-to-income ratio will be much higher, and that will make it harder for you to qualify for a mortgage of similar value when purchasing your next home. Getting your first home sold can clear up your debt-to-income ratio and give you a better chance to write a competitive offer. 

3. You’re buying in a competitive market. Being able to write an offer that’s free of any contingencies is fantastic, but it’s much tougher to negotiate with a seller when you tell them that your home has to sell first before you can write an offer. Put yourself in their shoes: Would you want to accept an offer that was contingent on another home selling? The risk there is substantial. 



Speaking from experience, I can tell you that taking care of your family, paying your bills, and paying two mortgages at once is a tough task.

4. You’re selling in a sluggish market. The real estate market can slow down during certain times of the year, so if you buy before you sell during one of these downturns, you risk having your current home on the market for an extended period while carrying two mortgages. Additionally, you might end up having to sell for a lower price. 

If you have any questions about this or any other real estate topic, don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I’d love to help you. 

What Are the Benefits of a Pre-Listing Inspection?


A pre-listing inspection is a great idea for many reasons. Here are five of them.

For any homeowners out there who are thinking about listing their home anytime in the near future, I wanted to share five reasons why you should also consider a pre-listing home and septic inspection:

1. Advance notice. Many times, when we get under contract with a buyer, we only have 45 to 60 days to make repairs that are negotiated after the buyer has their inspection. With such a limited time frame, it’s so much more difficult to get things done than if we know about the repairs before the property is even listed with a pre-listing inspection.

2. Do it yourself. If you have the report before listing and there are items that you can knock out yourself, you can do it yourself or we can help you. Taking away these minor inspection items is much cheaper and easier if done in advance.

3. Contractor of your choice. If we wait until we’re under contract to make inspections, the short amount of time requires us to hire whichever contractor is able to get the job done in the time frame. Being able to push things out a bit to make sure we’re getting the right contractor will save us a ton of time, money, and stress. 



Taking away minor inspection items is much cheaper if done in advance.

4. Informed pricing. If we figure out that a new septic system will need to be installed before listing, we can make a decision on its price based on that instead of waiting for the buyer to come in and try to get an even bigger discount.

5. Leverage. When you go under contract with a buyer, one of the first steps is to negotiate repairs. If we can make that negotiation a part of the initial contract acceptance, then we have the leverage in requesting those repairs. It’s a powerful tool.

If you have questions about anything in this list or about anything else related to real estate, don't hesitate to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
