What You Should Know
Robin Taylor Can Sell Your Home!
When you are buying or selling a home, you need someone who you can trust to guide you through the process. You need a professional who knows the market and has the expertise to help you make big decisions, protecting your most valuable asset from start to finish.
As one of the top Realtors in my Coldwell Banker office, I can help you make wise choices. I’ve gotten to the top by working hard and putting my clients first, and that dedication is what sets me apart from other real estate agents.
My area of expertise is along the I-79 corridor, primarily in the North Hills of Pittsburgh, focusing on communities like Sewickley, Franklin Park, and Wexford. I know how important good school districts are for many of my clients, whether you’re looking in North Allegheny, Quaker Valley, Avonworth, Pine-Richland, Hampton or North Hills.
I also work with investors who are flipping properties city neighborhoods like Lawrenceville or East Liberty. And I’ve helped clients buy and sell beautiful old homes in Shadyside and Squirrel Hill.
While I sell a lot of luxury homes, I also work with move-up buyers, people who are downsizing, or relocating to Pittsburgh. One of my very favorite things is working with first-time homebuyers. I remember what it was like or me to buy my first home and I love sharing in that thrill.
When the day comes that you need a Realtor, I hope that you will call me.

5 Home Improvements that Pay Off
Five Home Improvements that Pay Off
When it comes time to sell your home, which home improvements are most likely to pay off? Here are five home improvements that are worth the investment. They should net you a higher sales price or lead to a faster sale.
Interest Rates are Historically Low!
This Could be a Once in a Lifetime Opportunity
In July 2020, mortgage rates fell to record lows. The 30-year-fixed-rate mortgage was less than 3%. That's the lowest point in history! So what does that mean for homebuyers? Well, it's a huge advantage that makes owning a home much more affordable.
What is a Zestimate
Is Your Zestimate Accurate?
What is a Zestimate? How accurate is it? Zillow uses an automated value computer program to determine the value of your home based upon square footage and recent sales, but it's only as good as the data that goes in. Remember, the computer can't see inside your home. Finishes make a big difference when it comes to price, as does the location. If you want a better understanding of what your home is worth, you need a Realtor to do a comparative market analysis.
What is a Dye Test
Why does a Seller have to pay for a Dye Test?
What is a dye test and why do you need one when selling real estate in Pennsylvania? The DEP wants to make sure that stormwater isn't flowing into the sanitary sewer system because that can cause a big mess. The test is fairly simply and is usually performed by a plumber or someone the municipality and costs roughly $100, depending upon the location.
What to Fix and What Not To Fix
What do you need to Fix?
Sellers: find out what you need to fix and what you don't need to fix. After the home inspection, the buyer is likely to come back with a long list of repairs they would like done. Here's what you need to know and how to respond.
