Selling with a Real Estate Professional
Selling your home with a real estate professional can take much of the stress and pressure of the process off your shoulders, and save you valuable time and money. An agent will work with you and support you throughout the entire selling process, from determining the best listing price for your home to home inspections, marketing and open houses.
Do you know how much your home is worth? It's important to do a comparative market analysis (CMA) before you set your listing price, take into consideration any renovations that have been done, have a home inspection completed to identify any repairs needed, and to understand how much you need to glean from the sale in order to either make a profit, break even, or make enough to afford your next home.
As agents, we will perform a CMA and look at comparable homes in your neighborhood to see what price they are being listed at, and what they are actually selling for. We'll take into acount any home improvements made, market data and your financial situation to help you set an appropriate listing price to attract buyers and ensure you get the highest price possible for your home.
We will work to make sure your home gains as much market exposure as possible in order to reach the greatest number of homebuyers. In addition to traditional methods of advertising such as printed advertisements, yard signs and open houses, with your permission we'll also list you're home on a Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and implement online marketing techniques to reach a large pool of buyers and provide them with descriptive information and photos of your home.
We'll also help you to prepare your home for viewing and sale, offering staging tips and advice and providing referrals to professionals who can help you get your home in selling shape, including painters, repair people and carpet cleaners.
Once you've found the right buyer for your home, we'll support and represent you through the entire negotiating process. We'll advise you on the contract and contingencies, help you negotiate the best deal with favorable closing terms, and ensure that your selling experience is positive and profitable.
