Earn Money for Your School!

One of the benefits of working with me as your Realtor is the ability to give back to your school of choice. But what does that mean exactly?

It’s pretty exciting actually! Whenever you buy or sell with me, I will donate 10% of my net commission to the school of your choice. Not buying or selling anytime soon, but know someone who is? You can still earn the donation to your school by referring me! Upon successful closing of their transaction, I will simply make the donation in your name. It’s that easy!

I truly believe that giving back – especially to local schools that work ever so diligently to educate our youth is such an important part of building a strong community.


This all sounds great! … Now what?

There are three steps that you will need to complete in order to qualify for the donation.  (We recommend bookmarking this page so you can refer to it when you need to).

Step 1: Prior to placing an offer on a property, you need to email me your request to have a donation made to your school of choice. 

Step 2: After Closing of the property, you will need to send me another email within 10 days; kind of like a rebate program. 

Step 3:  Enjoy the wonderful feeling of making a difference in our community, and the education of our youngsters!

Donations will be made within 30 days after  your transaction has been approved, and will be made on behalf of Michelle McKinney and you, the client.

Fall Leaves Bring Sold Signs

Fall Door

Summer has come to an end and you probably are thinking you’ve lost the opportunity to sell, and that you need to wait till next summer; but guess what? That’s far from the truth! Although it’s not as hectic and crazy with the swarm of buyers on the market, the fall season brings out the most serious of lookers. They are the pool of buyers that waited out the summer frenzy to find their perfect home in the fall, and you don’t want to miss these buyers! They are ready to make a move, today – and selling in a slower period does not equate to less money. That’s a misconception that home owners have based on untrue data that floats around. By using a top Palm Coast Realtor, and pricing your home correctly, you can get a great deal selling your home during the fall season; in fact – you might actually prefer it. Here are the top 3 benefits to listing during the fall season.

1. Serious Buyers – Let’s be honest, if buyers are out during the busy season, looking for homes, they are serious and ready to buy. Although the summer brings in a large crowd, that crowd contains a lot of people that are excited by the season, and fall into the “trend” of house hunting. These people sometimes end up not really being serious about the process, and tend to hold off for another time. If people are investing time to look during the fall season, they are more likely to be interested in actually buying your home, instead of touring it.

2. Less Competition – Selling in the fall isn’t something many families can accomplish due to personal schedules. That’s why a significant amount of homes get listed during the summer season – which means that summer time brings in a lot of competition. Selling in the fall means the potential house next door that has slightly more perks that may have been listed during the summer, doesn’t make your home sit stagnant, since everyone wanted your neighbor’s house. It also doesn’t devalue your home because of the house that could go up next door that could be under-priced in your neighborhood, and draw all of the attention.

With a slower season, you get dedicated attention to your property, which increases the chance of a sale.

3. Easier to Find Your Dream Home – Not only do you get to benefit from a slower season during the selling process, but you can also benefit on the buying side. With less competition on your dream house, you may get a better deal. The summer brings a lot of missed opportunities for buyers on their dream homes, because they go off the market instantly. This will give you the opportunity to get your home on the market and take your time to find the right one to resize into. A much calmer pace to the transaction will make it less stressful, and everyone all around happier. Don’t feel rushed into buying a home overnight during the summer, it could turn into a headache. If you want a far more peaceful transaction, that has calmer pace, then selling during the fall is perfect for you.
