The Buying & Selling of Real Estate Benefits the Entire Community

Force-placed-ins-money-house-article-2Buying or selling a home not only offers us benefits, like equity, comfort & stability, it also positively impacts our community. Every time a home is sold, it sets off a series of events that generates an economic impact on the area around it. In fact, according to the National Association of Realtors, the transfer of real estate in Washington boosts the economy by $76,000, on average!

Typically, there are 26 services involved in a single real estate transaction in the 30 days before and after a real estate transaction has closed. Buyers and sellers may use services such as home remodel/repair contractors, painters, plumbers, etc. during and after the closing of a sale.

In addition, the community experiences a positive economic impact when buyers and sellers utilize the following services: mortgage lending, title insurance, escrow, home appraisal, real estate brokerages, movers, storage facilities, hardware and home product stores, and the purchase of new furniture & appliances.

I love my real estate business because it allows me to serve my community by helping individuals and families own a piece of the American Dream. Homeownership has a direct, positive impact on the health of our community, and that’s important to me, and it’s good for all of us!

Working for you,

Testimonial: “I needed a little hand holding…”

5 ways to increase your home's value before selling“For several years I saw Marti’s name, in regards to real estate, in my local paper. I saw that she was the “Best of” for Realtors for a couple of years. I knew that, when I sold my home, she was going to be my Realtor. I was not disappointed.

“I told Marti why I was selling and why it was so important for me to do so. I was confident, upon that first meeting, that my house sale would go well. Marti and her team are incredible. Everything that she said was going to happen did and in a timely manner! My house sold within days of going on the market. Even when I needed a little hand holding through the process Marti was there, which made me even more confident that I had made the right decision in choosing her as my Realtor.”
