MARKETING IT RIGHT.
Marketing helps find the right qualified buyer to purchase your home. It all begins with pricing, we can help you with that. Homes that are priced right are often picked by buyers in a short amount of time. To price your home we will review comparable homes in your area that are currently on the market or have sold in the last few months. We will also take in account your homes location, square footage, amenities and condition, as well as local market conditions. All of this information is included in the Comparative Market Analysis (CMA).
AVOID THESE COMMON MISTAKES SELLERS MAKE WHEN THEY LIST:
- Getting caught up in emotions.
- Overpricing the home.
- Expecting buyers to pay the asking price.
- Not allowing the agent to take listing photos.
- Hiding issues.
SHOWING YOUR HOME.
-Identify and remove potential hazards ahead of time.
-Open curtains and blinds to let light in.
-Keep your home in show-ready condition, as well as accepting showings.
When you get an offer, we’ll present it to you and negotiate on your behave. The offer may include the amount the buyer is proposing to pay, how much they plan to mortgage, their ideal closing date, any contingencies, in addition, personal property they want included or extended.
