Not Believing All Realtors are the Same
all the intricate details and critical decisions to be made concerning your home
sale, should you rely on anyone but a top producing professional? Many friends
and family members have been estranged as a result of failing to meet expectations.
Your home sale is a time consuming, effort related, difficult task. Maximize your
profit by utilizing a professional.
Pricing Your Home Properly for the Current Market
critical reason to locate the right professional is to make sure the
is priced appropriately for a timely and profitable sale. The real estate market
has subtle nuances. If the property is priced too high it will sit and develop
an identity as a problem property, priced too low it could cost you considerable
profits. Market changes should be re-evaluated by you and your agent every 10-14
days to help maximize your return.
Market Timing/Seasonal Selling
Just as a broker
who continually follows the trends of a stock, your
professional agent follows
trends of the home market. They will know when the market cycle is poised to net
you the most money. Avoid believing that property sales are seasonal... property
is always selling.
Providing Easy Access for Showings
is a major key to profitability. Appointment-Only showings are the most restrictive,
while a lock box is the least. However, there are certain considerations to take
into account: your lifestyle, time frame for the desired sale and the relationship
with your agent. The more accessible your home is, the better the odds of finding
a person willing to pay your asking price. You may never know if the one that
couldn't get a viewing was the one that got away. By developing a trusting relationship
with your agent, he or she will show the home with your best interests in mind.
5. Make Profit Inducing Repairs
It always costs more money to sell your home in its present condition than to
consider making repairs that increase the home's value. Even minor improvements
often yield as much as three to five times the repair cost at the time of sale.
Seemingly small repair jobs can have quite an impact. I will be able to point
out the repairs that significantly increase the value of your home.
You Make a Difference
Be a part of the team!
Take an active role with me to see what you can do to facilitate your sale. Networking
with professional peers and personal friends often results in the sale of a home.
Be sure to refer anyone that you think might have an interest in the sale of a
home. Be sure to refer anyone that you think might have an interest to me. It's
surprising how many homes are sold this way. Of course, you should never show
your home to a stranger that has not been "pre-qualified" by an experienced
real estate professional.

a report of properties relevant to yours in size, location and conditions.
Knowledgeable interpretation of this information will determine the appropriate
asking price for your property.
