Selling Your Home
We Know What Makes Your Home Sell
While you are eager to see that “SOLD” sign go up, there’s a lot to consider along the way. One of your first decisions is to select a real estate agent who’ll join you in the process. You deserve much more than a sign and a posting on the local multiple listing service. You deserve an agent who will be at your side, from listing to closing, ensuring the process goes smoothly and that you get the most money possible from the sale of your home. With over a decade of experience and ranked in the top 5% of area agents, I come to you with expertise, superior negotiation and representation skills, and an unbeatable marketing strategy that is not only impressive but it gets the job done!
The right price for your property is determined by several factors. A thorough review of current market conditions, nearby comparable home activity such as actives, pendings, solds. Additional considerations include upgrades, condition, neighborhood, and age of home. When we price your home correctly it is likely to sell quickly at the price you deserve.
Staging a home can be as simple as relooking at your home through new eyes, decluttering and a fresh coat of paint or it can be as elaborate as a hiring a professional stager. More and more homes are staged for sale as the benefits far outweigh the time, expense and energy involved. Any great home sale strategy includes staging it on some level.
In today's market buyers have access to homes the minute they hit the market. We have one shot to get it right. Your home is showcased with professional photos, a stunning virtual tour and an individual property website. It's listed on over 350 online search engines and on KW's web network of 76,000 sites. This is just a preview of the many things we do.
Once we receive an offer, or multiple offers, it is time to put a deal together with a buyer and open escrow. This negotiation can take a few days of going back and forth with counter offers as each party is competing for their top priorities. We take the art of representing you very seriously and possess additional negotiation training (CNE & MCNE designations) to help in this process.
The negotiation continues throughout the transaction as the buyer usually has 17 days to do their investigations, review disclosures and conduct their home inspection. This is called their contingency timeframe. These inspections nearly always yield items the buyer asks seller to fix through a repair request. Negotiating on your behalf comes into play to keep the buyer moving forward while protecting your interests.
Once we get through the buyers contingency timeframe and the buyer is committed, we begin our march toward the closing date when buyers loan funds and the county assessor records the deed in buyers name. There are numerous things we manage during this process to ensure we successfully get to the finish line, the file is legally compliant, an audit of the file performed, and a successful buyers final walk through.
