KMS Partners LLC, is an exclusive partnership within the
Coldwell Banker Westport-Riverside real estate office.

Forget losing weight, learning a new language or spending more time with your family. If you’re a real estate homebuyer or home seller, these are the New Year’s resolutions that count:

For buyers and sellers both

Pick up the phone (or write the email): Schedule that appointment with your realtor! Wish them a happy new year, then discuss your real estate goals. Getting started is the hard part. After that, everything seems easy.
Make a second call: to your financial planner. It’s time for some honest, solid advice on how your real estate decisions fit in to your long-term financial goals.
Do something real estate-related every day. Stop “getting ready to get ready.” Make a list (with your realtor). Don’t check it twice; start checking items off!
Keep a sense of humor during the real estate process. (This is a KMS Partners specialty.)

For buyers

Decide what you “must have” with a new house. Also, what you’d “like to have.” And what you “absolutely will not have.” Zeroing in on those helps you find what you “will have.”
If you’re seeking a mortgage, get pre-approved. The time and hassles may not be life-changing. But they’re close.

For sellers

Make a third call: order a dumpster. Clear the clutter in your house. And while you’re doing so: Don’t you dare buy anything new!
At the same time, start donating items. And plan a tag sale. (Don’t forget to post items for sale on every online and social media platform you can think of.)
You know that repair list? Get on it!
Make sure any permits for your house are closed.
Of course, whether you plan to sell in 2016 or beyond, consult an agent to see what you should do now, to maximize your sale then. (Bonus: You’ll enjoy those quick fixes for a while, before you sell.)

See how easy that is? Now who cares about losing weight, learning a new language, or spending more time with your family?! We at KMS Partners are there for you, throughout the process. We have great resources — and it’s our New Year’s resolution to help you realize your goals. Click here to learn more.
