4 Fundamentals of Selling a Home Today

Will and Julie
We can help you sell your property quickly and at the highest price possible.

Here are four things sellers should understand about today’s market to make their homes as saleable as possible:

  1. Time and time again, we find that real estate pricing is very local. That means real estate professionals and homeowners need to closely examine comparables. We have to see what nearby properties have sold for in the past three months.  We also look at the competition and what’s under agreement. The bottom of the market is probably behind us, but it’s hard to know how much your home will sell for today until we study trends in your home’s “micro-market”.
  2. Online marketing works.  Therefore it’s important to get high-quality property pics online.
  3. Don’t wait for a home inspection. Fix what you can and disclose what you can’t.  Every home has problems, but disclosing quirks and problems builds trusts and makes selling a property go smoothly. When the buyer discovers defects, there are last-minute re-negotiations, cold feet and sometimes the deal explodes.
  4. There is no more cost-effective marketing than cleaning your home.  By “clean” we mean clean, clean, super-clean: A clean and clutter-free property makes potential buyers likely to pay more.
