5 Tips to Consider for Resale

  • A Home Made for Hosting

When you’re buying a home, the last thing you’re thinking about it selling it! But the irony is that you SHOULD be thinking about selling it when you’re buying it! Michael and I have owned two homes since being married and in both cases, we received REALLY great resale advice.

If my office walls could speak, they would have been saying “Just make a pricing ebook already, Katelyn!”. There is so much to share and I realized that if some photographers never have a chance to come to a coaching session down the road, they would never get to hear this content and learn from us!
