Selling Your PA House in the Poconos?

Through pricing, staging, agent accessibility, and visibility, both on and offline, I can successfully sell your home to help you achieve your goals.   

Why Choose Me, Karen Rice, to List Your Home?

Does it matter who you choose as long as it goes on the multi-list service, Zillow, and other online sites? Does it really matter as long as the listing price is satisfactory to you?Karen Rice Listing Agent Lake Wallenpaupack PA

Actually, it really does matter who you choose to list your home.  It doesn't matter what brokerage the agent is affiliated with - whether it's a national franchise like Keller Williams or a locally known boutique brokerage.  We all have the same access to the multi-list service,, Zillow, Trulia, etc.  What really matters is the individual agent you hire. 

What are their skills? What is their experience? How will they market your home?  What is their personality like? Are they responsive? Are they friendly and positive? Do they keep on top of current industry trends? These are the questions you need to consider when hiring a REALTOR® to sell your home.

Local Knowledge of Wayne & Pike County and Lake Wallenpaupack

You need a creative and thoughtful REALTOR® who knows the differences between The Hideout,  Hemlock Farms, Wallenpaupack Lake Estates, and Lakeland Colony.  Also, a home in Tanglwood Lakes by the golf course is very different from one in Tanglwood North in Tafton.  For a home in Masthope or Fawn Lake Forest, an agent that understands the amenities and values for each community is a must.

Knowing how to market, explain, and price homes with boat slips on Lake Wallenpaupack vs. homes without a boat slip is so important! I know all the communities in the Lake Wallenpaupack, Lake Ariel, and Lackawaxen region and what they offer.  Therefore, my personal and professional understanding of the local market for both Wayne and Pike County means you can be confident you are placing the sale of your home in the right hands.

Top-Notch Marketing

Furthermore, as a career real estate professional in the Poconos, my marketing goes beyond the typical "3P Sales Plan."  I don't take dark blurry pictures, post them online, and pray that they sell. 

My home selling strategy includes:

  • Professional quality photos to grab buyer interest immediately
  • Engaging copy to describe and showcase the most attractive aspects of your home
  • Video marketing
  • Industry Leading Matterport 3D 360 Virtual Tours
  • Social media marketing on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and others
  • Direct mail (just listed postcards)
  • Brochure box (where allowed)
  • Negotiation on your behalf to get the best sales price and terms possible.
  • Coordinate and give support to buyer agents for showings, inspections, appraisals, and more.
  • Work out settlement terms and details with the buyer agent, closing attorneys/title agents.
  • Make your real estate goal a reality. 


Things to Think About When Selling Your Home

My home sale marketing plan is designed to get your listing maximum exposure to buyers and buyer agents. Unfortunately, any home marketing plan will fail without accurate pricing.

Accurate pricing is the main key to getting as many people as possible to tour and make offers on your home, especially when you first list your home.  There’s always a pool of buyers waiting for new listings in their price range to hit the market, which is why accurate pricing and staging your home properly is crucial.  

Once we’ve determined the price, I can give you advice about the little things that you can do to stage your home to get you the highest possible price! You’d be surprised by the simple measures you can take to dress up your home to attract more qualified buyers.

Everyone deserves the best agent to sell their home. There is no substitute for experienceskill, and local knowledge. When listing your lake house, cabin, or townhouse with me, Karen Rice of Keller Williams Real Estate., you get all three, and more.  As a lifelong resident, I know the greater Lake Wallenpaupack, Lake Ariel, and Lackawaxen area as only a native can.
