Tom Lyons 0:07
Hi, everybody. I’m the voice from beyond

Tara Lyons 0:10
He didn’t even say “Its Tour Tuesday”

Tom Lyons 0:13
I didn’t know as being, I could be like the narrator.

Tara Lyons 0:17
It’s when we tour homes so you don’t have to.

Tom Lyons 0:19
That’s right. It was a dark and gloomy Tour Tuesday when the two realtors

You’re interrupting the narrator. Its too late. It’s over. It’s not funny anymore.

Tara Lyons 0:32
Well, we’re actually doing this in one of our homes that are on tour today. It’s 8 Queensboro Court which is in West Park village. It is a beautiful home. It’s a big two story home. four bedrooms upstairs. There’s four bathrooms you’ve got a beautiful en-suite bath with walk-in closet off the master. Main floor has a two piece bathroom and walk-in into the big, oversized two car garage. And it’s also got a gorgeous backyard too that has a screened-in sun room three season sun room. There’s a family room on the main level with fireplace and we’re right now sitting in the living room. Dining room all that good stuff so it’s really a nice home worth seeing. We’ve got video and more pictures online you can visit at

Julie 1:15
Or come to the open house. Saturday, 2:30 to 3:30. I’ll be here.

Tara Lyons 1:20
Yes Julie will be hosting that. So that’s actually a great idea. Well, so what’s been going on Julie? Tom and I are back from holidays.

Julie 1:29
We had the Family Skate Day event yesterday and that was super fun! So thanks to everybody that came out. We saw a few clients that we recognized.

Tara Lyons 1:40
We were sleeping, Tom and I.

Julie 1:43
I was scating.

Tom Lyons 1:45
We did an entire recovery from vacation

Tara Lyons 1:48
We were recovering very, it was a 12 hour travel day it was so insanely long line ups everything and we got in, I think close to 11 or midnight or something.

Julie 1:59
No skating for you.

Tom Lyons 2:15
That’s awesome.

Julie 2:16
That’s good.

Tara Lyons 2:17
Yes good. Yeah it’s always fun because we have we have some time with just the Royal LePagers before we invite all of our clients to join us so it’s a nice, it’s a nice get together for the Royal LePagers as well. Thanks Mark!

Tom Lyons 2:32
About a month and a half away from spring market.

Tara Lyons 2:34
So excited especially with this weather! So this is when if you are looking to sell this is when you want to get your home ready, get it on the market. We have lots of sellers right now who are in the middle of that and we need to line everything up. So we have time for photos and floor plans and all that good stuff.

Tom Lyons 2:51
If you start thinking now you have time to be able to paint you time to be able to do little things that you want to do to get it ready. So

Tara Lyons 2:58
It’s more prep work. It’s no longer “Hey, I want to list my house tonight can you come over.” It’s we need time, we need time to prep. Because we do the staging, we provide that for you. But we also provide the floor plans and professional photos. So we can’t just get them in that same day anymore. We can certainly still do that if you’re on a time crunch. And we can do everything we used to always do. But we’d like being able to provide those extra services.

Julie 3:23
Home evaluations are the name of the game! Last week and the next couple of weeks.

Tara Lyons 3:30
And then buyers, great time for you to get started talking with us as to what you’re looking for. Because as these homes come on, we can tell you about them right away. So with Royal LePage, we hold over 50% of the market. So we hear about them quite often before other companies do because they come through our internal system.

Julie 3:49
Get your mortgage pre approval done now so that you’re ready to roll and can go in strong if you end up in multiple offers.

Tara Lyons 3:57
Which we still do see and what about the Hastings Mortgage plan. How’s that? Is that done now or is that?

Julie 4:02
Still waiting on the updated form for 2020. But again, you need your mortgage pre approval to even apply for it. So make sure you get that to get that rolling.

Tom Lyons 4:13
Get ahold of Julie will put her email in the show notes so that you can get ahold of her and she can make sure when that form comes out that you’re ready to roll, that you want to have all your ducks in line because they go really fast.

Julie 4:26
In like 2 weeks, the funding went “first come first serve.”

Tara Lyons 4:29
Yeah they went fast.

Tom Lyons 4:43
Nope. Just mentioning that again on a Tuesday. It is snowing.

Team 4:54
Tour Tuesday out!
