                     "Don’t let your Realtor sell you short  on the price of your home”

If your house listing is Expired or you are a For Sale By Owner or just not getting the exposure you need

Kevin Hogan can help:

Don’t Reduce Your Price!

Your home has been listed for a while and the Realtor keeps telling you to drop your price. Most Realtors are trained to take a listing for 6 months and then prop their feet up on the desk and wait for a sale. If the buyers don’t respond to the property in the local MLS most Realtors are trained to reduce the price. That system works less than 30% of the time.  

The truth is there are many factors that effect the sale ability of your home and only one of them is the price.

Or maybe...

Your For Sale By Owner had some traffic for the first two months, but now you are paying a mortgage on a property that isn't moving. Call Kevin and let him sit down with you and explain the benefits of listing with him. The extra money made by employing a professional will more then cover his services and put a little something extra in your pocket. 

With Kevin's in house staging experts, knowledge of current market conditions and the support of the Paul Gillespie & Asscociates we can create a marketing plan to get your house sold.
