I have recently entered an agreement to provide a free home warranty on every home I sell, regardless of age or condition.  The warranty is provided by a national warranty company, goes into effect upon closing, and will pay for any repairs that may not have been apparent at the time your home inspection was completed or problems that come up after you take ownership.

Providing a home warranty is a part of the marketing plan for each home I sell, and gives piece of mind to both buyers and sellers.  If you would like to learn more about my home seller marketing plans, and buyer action plans, contact me and I will personalize one for you.


locked-houseMortgages can seem pretty complicated. That’s why it’s so important to not only have a Realtor that you trust, but also a mortgage lender that you trust. One that will explain the ins and outs of your mortgage and put it in simple terms when it gets to complicated.

One question that can seem overwhelming is when to lock in your mortgage rate. This is something that your lender should explain to you and specify your options based on the type of loan that you have. Check out this article about locking in your mortgage over on Realtor.com for some great pointers.

Phil, his wife, Gayle, and the whole Phil Sharp Homes team were a joy to work with from the start. Before we even arrived in WA to look at homes, the team had already been in contact with us to determine what kind of home we were looking for and also sent us several listings for us to “like” or “dislike” to narrow down our tastes. Phil and Gayle were very flexible with our schedule, and made it easy to look at homes by picking us up each morning and being very considerate of the time we spent or didn’t spend in each listing. Once we decided on a home to buy, Phil really went the extra mile for us by giving us advice on making an offer and the purchase process and really listening to our concerns. He also checked in on us regularly during the process to make sure we were doing okay and if he or Gayle could help us in any way. Not only was this a wonderful way for us to purchase our first home, it was a wonderful way to be welcomed to Washington State!
