Selling Your Home
Determining the Value of Your Home
A key part of the marketing plan is setting the list price. If a home is priced to low, it may cost you money. If a home is priced too high, potential buyers may be scared away. To determine the best asking price, we will need to review the cost of recently sold homes, evaluate the competition and study marketplace trends. As an experienced agent for over 15 years, I can help you reach the right asking price. It is also helpful to discuss other terms and conditions, such as timing and items that can be included with the sale of the home. All these things can make your home more attractive to potential buyers.
Getting Your Home Ready to Showcase
Now it’s time to get your home ready for the spotlight. Start with a good cleaning, then eliminate any clutter, possibly add a fresh coat of paint, and tidy up the yard. Let me make suggestions to boost your home’s curb appeal and impress potential buyers once they’re in the door.
Your closet looks twice as big with half the clutter.
A fresh coat of neutral paint serves as a blank canvas to potential buyers.
Prove that each room has purpose, but don't overdo it and don't personalize it.
Natural lighting does help lift the mood and make a room look larger.
A fresh coat of paint can really make any exterior look new again.
If the landscaping is bad, they likely won’t step inside. Flowers help brighten any yard.
Clean, declutter and remove all storage. Show that two cars can fit inside.
- Patio and Deck
Set it up as if you have friends coming over. Clean the windows inside and out.
Marketing Your Home Is Essential
We will need to create a marketing plan for your home that will help it stand out in your local marketplace and attract buyers to your property. This will most likely include a detailed listing on the Internet, holding an open house and print advertising or more. A well-priced and marketed home should sell quickly.
Negotiating the Offer
A buyer has made an offer – now it is time to negotiate. Rely on my vast negotiating skills to guide you through this process. Together we will determine an acceptable price, terms and conditions that meet with your needs, and I will further guide you through the transaction through each step – from inspections, appraisals, financing, and finally the closing.
