Did you Know??

More buyers find their home on the Internet.. than print or yard signs.*

87% of Buyers are using the Internet to look for homes.

While its beneficial for buyers to look online, buyers still need a Realtor to represent them in the transaction. A good Realtor knows the market and can research comparable sales so a buyer makes the best decision possible.

Did you know, buyers benefit from a buyer's agent, but often pays nothing for their agents services? That's because most often the seller pays the buyer and sellers agent's commission.

If you are a buyer looking for a home in the Mason, Ohio area, contact Michelle Sloan, Sibcy Cline Realtor at 513-600-5277.

Rule #1

When selling a home -- you must ACCEPT all showings!

If it's a little dirty.. you must show. If you want to sell.. don't make excuses. You must be ready at all times!

You may only get one chance -- don't blow it! There is a good chance, those buyer's won't come back.
