Husky Homes Blog - Seller Tips

July Broker NoteWe've been experiencing an abundance of rain in our area lately. Whenever we endure days of torrential downpours and storms, my anxiety spikes as I think about my current and past clients. My immediate concern? Wet basements.

Selling a home can be a daunting process, especially when you're juggling the logistics of moving to a new place. Recently, I had the privilege of helping a wonderful family prepare their house for the market, ensuring a smooth and stress-free experience. Here’s a look at how we achieved this together.
