WHO SHOULD READ THIS GUIDE

This guide is not a generic, cookie-cutter newsletter on selling your home, but a crash course with specifics on selling your home in the Fort Hood, TX area. I get specific about our housing market here in Central Texas, what you can expect if you choose to sell your home, and how to do it right. If you, a friend, colleague, family member, or neighbor are thinking of selling their home in the Fort Hood Area (Killeen, Harker Heights, Copperas Cove, Nolanville, Salado, Florence, and the surrounding areas), this guide is for you!

If you are still shopping for a Realtor, this guide is also a sneak peek into my philosophy as a listing agent and explains a little about the thought process and steps I will take to ensure you get the most for your home on the market.

WHAT YOU WILL TAKE AWAY

Most sellers are trying to maximize three things when they sell:

MONEY

Get the best price for your home with the fewest costs

TIME

Sell on a timeline that is convenient for your schedule

EXPERIENCE

Avoid hassles and be confident and comfortable in the process
