Merry Christmas and Joyous New Year!

It brings me such joy to have you in my life! Real estate and family are my passions and I am so blessed to share both with you. The coming year is a big one for real estate and I urge you to connect with me. I’d love to know what’s on your horizon and talk about your home, your family and your real estate goals.

My real estate goals are to each year grow a niche. It has been over 10 great years with No Place Like Home so my next step is to expand. The fundamental way people do real estate is changing and I’m going to get in front of it. This means, you’ll still have me: Your Realtor, Your Friend, but have some options for you and your referral needs! Pricing plans in particular will change with flat rate options.

This year the total volume of homes in Natrona County down about 16M from 2016 to… Read More

Holiday Home Selling!

I am the first to say that the market is harsh round the holidays. However, it can make an average house shine and land a great price. Each and every single showing you get will be a qualified buyer, ready to buy and a motivated realtor, too. With fewer homes on the market to compete with and that naturally occurring longing for home for the holidays, it really is a great time to make a splash on the market.

I will never forget walking into my first Christmas wow house. Now, if you know me well, you know I am Christmas crazy and just love everything about Christmas so it takes some serious holiday decorating skills to impress me. The home was in the country and the fireplaces were lit up, the Christmas tree could be seen as we pulled into the drive. Ornaments were hung from the ceiling and each room was clean and showed the Christmas love. My… Read More

Tips to Sell in Autumn!

Showcase Your Home for an Autumn Sale

You may think that Autumn isn’t the best time to showcase your home, but you’d be wrong. Buyers are still out and ready to buy. Autumn has a unique appeal that’s all its own, and you can make your home decorated to say Welcome Home!

Fall home buyers are motivated; they want to move in before winter here in Wyoming. Put a nice new welcome mat out for buyers and their agents to wipe their feet. Fall decor is classy and inexpensive. Put out pumpkins, gourds, scarecrows, and mums now, and they will last through Thanksgiving.

Call Rita Parker at 247-0963 to start your journey now!

Here are some tips to selling your home during the changing season.

1. Let the light in! We already know there’s less sunlight in the fall and winter, so leave lights on for showings. Open the drapes and keep windows as clean as possible… Read More

Should You Rent or Sell Your Home?

In this declining market in Casper, WY and the surrounding areas, you might be trying to figure out if you should rent or sell your home. This is always a hard family decision. I am here to help you and follow your lead.

These are my top factors to talk over: Market Trend

How long until you break even or want to buy your next home? You should evaluate the current market conditions. The best way to do that is to get a CMA, a market value of your home in Casper, WY. This will have market trends for your area and both a value of your home and the costs associated with selling it. You can ask for a rent assessment as well to know what your home would rent for in the current market and a yearly breakdown of normal costs incurred. With figures in front of you, you have a good place to talk over the pros… Read More
