Why work with me?

I understand that most Vermont real estate buyers go online to research listings long before they pick up the phone or reach out through email to contact a Realtor. With this in mind, I have a modern, comprehensive approach to digital marketing to promote my listings, and help your Vermont property get noticed. Here are some of the proven and effective ways I work to get my listings in front of the Vermont real estate buyer:

  • Professional photography of each property, both inside and out
  • Optimized presence on Trulia, Realtor, and Zillow
  • Robust social media program with the most actively engaged Vermont audience on Facebook
  • Paid digital advertising, boosting exposure and click-through rates
  • Up to date, SEO-rich website based in WordPress for optimized search results
  • Regular blog postings highlighting the area and promoting listings
  • Postcard and print advertising to supplement and support individual listings

When you work with Pleasant Valley Real Estate, my personal approach, expanded digital marketing, and tight community connections will help you sell your Vermont real estate as quickly as possible, and with a minimum of stress!

Selling a Home in Vermont? Important Information: An Attorney is Required

If you’re selling your home in Vermont, you’ll need an attorney to prepare the new warrantee deed and the property tax return form, and if necessary, provide assistance if there are any title issues that need to be cleared up prior to the sale of a property.

Sellers in Vermont should be aware that if they are nonresidents, there may be a withholding fee of 2.5%, unless a withholding certificate is issued. If you are selling Vermont land and you have not owned it for more than six years, there is a land gains tax, and it is sizeable in the first year of ownership. The land gains tax rate reduces every year until six years pass, at which point there is no land gains tax. There are also Vermont ACT 250 regulations if a property has been subdivided. Documentation must be provided to buyers in advance of the closing.

As a Vermont Realtor, I often reflect on the wise advice my father gave me years ago: “Why would you ever purchase or sell something as important as real estate without good legal advice?”
