As a Brooklyn real estate agent, I spend a lot of time rushing in and out of Brooklyn homes. It’s easy for me to get caught up in the hustle-bustle of real estate transactions, and I forget to slow down to appreciate the pleasures of owning a home. So today, I want to take a moment to reflect on the home aspect of real estate.
My job (one I love) is to help people just like you find a house that suits their lives. Once you move in, you make that house into a home.
Your Brooklyn home is where you and your loved ones celebrate holidays and where you create and continue family traditions. Whether you deck the halls with layers of tinsel and wreaths or have the whole family over to spin Hanukkah dreidels, the spirit of the season comes from the energy of the people gathering together in your home.
Season of Family Warmth
While you’re making your famous sugar cookies or spiking your secret-recipe punch with extra holiday cheer, pause for a moment to enjoy the warmth and beauty of your Brooklyn home. My wish for you is that you live every day like it’s a holiday, being thankful and spending time with loved ones.
May your home be filled with the joy of family and friends this holiday season. There’s truly no place like home for the holidays!
With Halloween right around the corner, you’re probably planning costumes, decorating for fall and maybe becoming aware of eerie home happenings that you wouldn’t normally notice. While the prospect of living in a haunted home could be scary to some, the idea of selling spooked Brooklyn real estate might be even more horrifying!
Rumored ghosts and past suspicious incidents could result in your home being moved from buyers’ purchase lists to their black lists. If you or your neighbors believe your home is haunted, take the following ghost-busting tactics into consideration before you put it on the market.
Follow the law – If you think your home is haunted, consult with a Brooklyn real estate agent to ensure you’re following the law. Every state’s legal procedures are different. You could be obligated to notify potential buyers or face legal ramifications down the road — or you may not have to utter a word.
If the cat’s out of the bag about your home for sale being haunted, please call me at Charles D’Alessandro Your Brooklyn real estate agent with Fillmore Real Estate at 718/253-9600 ext 206 or email me at [email protected], for more ghost-busting information.
In order to get the most buyers through your front door, you’ll need to do more than just stick a sign in the front yard. An aggressive and thoughtful marketing campaign can make the difference between a quick sale and your house continuing to sit on the market with little activity.
Utilize the weekends to take the time to thoroughly market your Brooklyn home for sale by owner (FSBO).
Take a lot of good photographs. You have to expect that buyers will look at your property online before they decide to take the time to visit it in person. Make sure you have a lot of photographs online and that they do your house justice. Take pictures from multiple angles in each room and choose the best ones. Also, if you have a great yard, make sure you show it off.

You’ve decided to try to sell your Brooklyn home for sale by owner (FSBO). One of the many tasks you’ll be performing is showing your home to potential buyers. You won’t personally know most potential buyers, so be sure to take precautions to stay safe. After all, these are strangers you’re allowing into your home.
Here are six tips to protect your safety when showing your Brooklyn home for sale by owner (FSBO) to potential buyers:
1. Pre-qualify potential buyers. The most basic thing you want to do is determine if a potential buyer can afford to buy your home. The best way to do this is to require that the potential buyer give you a copy of their pre-approval letter before scheduling a viewing of your home. Buyers who are not serious about buying within the next few months will not have bothered to get pre-approved, and buyers who cannot afford your home will not be able to get a pre-approval letter.
2. Use a sign-in sheet. Keep a sign-in sheet near the entrance to your home. Have everyone who comes to view your home fill out his or her name, address and phone number on the sheet as soon as they enter.
3. Stay with them while they tour your home. While you don’t want to hover over their shoulders, don’t allow them to wander around your home by themselves.
4. Have someone else with you. Don’t be home alone. Have your neighbor, a friend or family member with you at all times.
5. Hide valuables. Do not leave money, jewelry or other valuables where they can be seen or easily taken.
6. Require an appointment. Whether you’re selling your home as a FSBO or with a real estate agent requiring an appointment allows you to keep a normal schedule. You don’t want people touring your home while you’re eating dinner or taking a nap. If a buyer is really interested, he or she will not have a problem making an appointment.
