what is your home worth?
Perhaps the most important step in selling a home is setting the right price. Many factors go into determining the price for your home – among them the condition of your home, location and the selling price of comparable properties in your area. Before you put your home on the market, we will provide a free pre-market consultation and a Competitive Market Analysis (CMA). We will recommend the price, keeping in mind that the price must be in line with the price of comparable properties and realistic enough to encourage buyers to make a purchase offer. We offer the CMA at no cost or obligation.
Prepare your home for sale
Most homeowners know it is important to keep a home clean, bright and free from clutter while it is on the market for sale. But we firmly believe in taking the extra step to properly stage a home, which can make a difference in how a buyer values it and the price a seller might get for it. Our professional home staging team member may suggest simple improvements that can give your home a competitive edge, help your home sell quickly and help you get the most for your home. We have the experience to know what changes and improvements can make a difference to potential buyers. Remember that the condition of your home is a variable over which you have control. Put yourself in a buyer’s shoes – most buyers want a home in move-in condition.
Another important part of preparing your home for sale is doing a pre-inspection. A professional home inspector will carefully inspect all areas and systems in your home and provide a list of repairs for a seller to complete (or consider). This eliminates surprises and buyer renegotiation after the home is in escrow. When buyers uncover repair items, they often attempt to renegotiate the price lower or demand expensive repairs. If you need help with repairs and improvements, we can provide referrals to qualified professionals who are licensed, bonded and highly recommended.
MArketing your home
Our exclusive photo and video tours allow buyers to virtually walk through your home from any computer or mobile device. We’ll show off your home with professional photographs and plenty of information. And full-screen viewing options allow buyers to see those high quality photographs in stunning detail, and thus “tour” your home before they visit in person.
Tools and technology have forever changed the way homes are sold. More than 92 percent of potential buyers now use the Internet to start the home buying process. The tools we provide put your home in front of a vast audience. All of our properties are listed on over 600 real estate websites throughout the world, such as Zillow, Trulia, Redfin, Realtor.com, Homeseekers, and Yahoo to name just a few.
Offers & Negotiation
A buyer who is interested in your home will make an offer to us through his own agent. The offer may not be what you expect but you can reject, counter or accept any offer that is presented. Together with us, you will decide if the offer will work for you. We are your advocate in this process and will negotiate for you. You can count on us to protect your interests and offer expertise.
We will review all contracts and explain them before you sign. Once an offer is accepted, we will lead you through the process, from signing the contract to the official transfer of ownership to the buyer.
