“My Neighborhood Report”
The best way to know how homes are sell- ing in your area is to ask one of our team members to prepare a My Neighborhood Report for you. My Neighborhood Report is an analysis of the facts and trends in your specific neighborhood. It includes an interactive map, details about each Active, Pending and Sold property. This report
gives you an accurate picture of the market for homes in your neighborhood and can help you make an informed decision when you are thinking of selling.
I don’t want to sell right now!
We understand. We can send you a new My Neighborhood Report every six months, so you can keep your finger on the pulse of the market and decide when is the best time to sell. There is no charge for the report and no obligation. To request a report, call any of our Team members.

Damage from the drought
Homeowners who were not vigilant dur- ing the drought of 2012 may now have damaged foundations caused by soil that shrank as it dried out. As the soil shrinks, the foundation shifts and moves, caus- ing cracks. In addition to the potential for leakage, floors become uneven, windows and doors don’t operate properly and walls crack. While it’s too late to undo any damage that occurred last year, you may want to have your foundation inspected
for damage. Call one of the Madden-Myers team members and we’ll recommend two or three foundation specialists for you to contact.
What about the landscape?
Now is the time to make landscape improvements. Walk around your property and make a note of plants and shrubs that need to be pruned or replaced. The land- scape features that added so much value to your home will decrease its value if your yard has diseased or dead plants. If you’d like advice on improving your landscape,
call any member of our Team and we’ll give you our suggestions and the names of two or three professional landscapers, if you need them.
