Whether buying or selling, it’s an intricate process. A REALTOR can help make this process as easy as possible for you. Here’s how:


The key to selling quickly and getting top dollar is exposure. The more people who see your home, the sooner you will find a willing buyer. How do you get the most exposure? If you sell the home yourself, you will get some exposure by putting up a sign, running some ads, and telling your friends. On the other hand, if you work with a REALTOR you will get instant and mass exposure to a large number of prospective home buyers.


A REALTOR has access to the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®). This service, a computerized system operated by the local real estate board, compiles information about listed properties in the area and makes it accessible to member companies. As a result, when a REALTOR lists your home, REALTORS from other companies learn about your home and try to match it with buyers with whom they are working. These buyers may include people from out-of-town who are trying to relocate to your area.

A REALTOR can speed the selling process in other ways:

  • By specializing in real estate, a REALTOR knows market values and can therefore
    help you set a competitive price for your home.
  • A REALTOR can free you from the hassles associated with showing your home
    and screen out people who are merely curious.
  • A REALTOR is objective when negotiating with buyers and experienced in reading
    the fine print of contracts.
  • By staying on top of the mortgage market, a REALTOR may know how to wade
    through financing tangles and clinch a sale.
  • Selling a home is not something that anyone can do in their off-hours. It’s a
    specialized service best handled by a professional. Best handled by a REALTOR.

Whether buying or selling your home Bill Brandsma will guide you smoothly through any and all real estate processes with honesty, efficiency, knowledge and genuine care.

Here are three home maintenance tips to think about addressing now that the gorgeous spring, actually almost summer, weather has arrived!

Wash Your Windows

The one thing that it is easy to neglect (or purposely avoid!) is cleaning your windows. After all the recent rainy weather they really are going to need it. If ladders are not your thing spend the extra few dollars to call in a professional window washing company to do those tricky second story windows. There’s nothing like the sun shining through sparkling windows to lift your spirits!

Power Wash the Exterior

Power washing is one of most efficient and cost-effective ways to clean off the dirt that’s built up on your home’s exterior after being exposed to the elements over the messy winter and spring months. Most surfaces from stucco, vinyl siding, wood and brick, to patios, porches and walkways can benefit from a good power washing and overall, give your home a quick facelift!

Check the Roof, Gutters & Downspouts

Checking the roof, gutters and downspouts is an easy job to put off. Kind of ‘out of sight, out of mind’! It’s important to repair any loose or missing shingles to avoid leakage and damage to the interior ceiling of your home, and critical to clean leaves and debris from your gutters and downspouts as build up and cause damage and prevent the water from draining properly.
