Price it Right- Sell Your Home Quickly

1.Price it right- don’t hold out waiting for your buyer. It may work on occasion if you have a very unique property- but let someone in the real estate business be the judge of that.

Effective Staging- Sell Your Home Quickly

2.Effective staging. Of the homes that sell within the first week on the market with multiple offers, most of them are staged or appear staged.

Stay In Contract- Sell Your Home Quickly

3.Once in contract to sell your house, stay in contract. Negotiate after they do their inspections.

Hire a Great Agent- Sell Your Home Quickly

4.All of this will be made easier if you are working with a great real estate agent.

Principal Broker & Licensed Contractor

Meet Bobby Curtis.  Buyer’s agent. Listing agent.  Renovator. A down-to-earth Midwesterner hailing from the great state of Michigan, Bobby harnesses equal parts brains, brawn, and enthusiasm for every client and project.  After graduating from the University of Michigan, he began a career in the pharmaceutical industry focusing on sales, marketing, and consulting.  In those five years, he was even lucky enough to roam around Europe for short assignment in Geneva, Switzerland.  Nevertheless, the European trip came to an end and he traveled back stateside where he traded in his suit for a high-quality flannel and some Carhartt’s.  After purchasing his first house to flip, Bobby rolled up his sleeves and started in on what would become his passion – transforming houses into homes by unleashing the beauty of each unique property. Since 2010, Bobby has bought and restored several houses a year in Portland, both large and small, with great success.  Armed with extensive first-hand knowledge of house restoration, Bobby offers his clients an exceptional eye to pinpoint property potential and value.  Whether you are searching for complete fixer property or a dialed-in and buttoned-up home, he is happy to guide you through the process of finding your perfect place.  If you are selling your property, Bobby’s keen eye will help you showcase all of your property’s best features.  Because Bobby buys and sells several properties of his own every year, he better understands what it's like to be in his clients shoes. And as an experienced buyer’s agent, listing agent, and renovator, Bobby is well-versed in negotiating a great price and terms for his clients. If you’re looking to get a sneak peak of Bobby in action, you can watch him (and his mom) on an episode of First Time Flippers on the DIY Network. Or you can catch him on Katu's Afternoon Live daytime talk show once a month, discussing Portland Real Estate and House Restoration.
