The decision to sell your unit is often dependent on many factors. Whatever your reasons are for selling, my proven effective marketing strategies will ensure that you get the highest possible price for your home. I guarantee to provide you with professional, ethical and confidential service and keep you fully informed every step of the way.
Selling Your Home
For most families, their home is their largest financial asset, and deciding to sell it is a big decision that involves a lot of preparation and work. When you're ready to sell it's important to have an experienced real estate professional handle the details involved in the successful sale of a home for top dollar.
As an experienced professional who has helped many Newhall residents sell their homes, I know how to handle every aspect of the sales process - from strategically marketing and showcasing your home to making sure everything's signed, sealed and delivered by the closing date.
Providing you with comprehensive, high-quality listing service is my top priority. So when you decide to sell your home, please contact me and let's get started!
The following articles are a great place to start if you're looking for information about the sales process and how you can get more for your home when you decide to sell.
Not Believing All Realtors are the Same
With 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
One critical reason to locate
the right professional is to make sure the
property 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
Accessibility 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.
I will provide 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.
Your Home for Sale
Because of my extensive interior design background, I
will advise you of simple ways to improve a buyer's perception
of your home's value and desirability. Often
minor changes dramatically improve the assurance of your
property selling for top dollar and before its competition.
Print, direct mail, presentation to the real estate brokerage
community, Multiple Listing Service and Internet presence,
special promotions and open houses. I will provide
you with a written plan and a service guarantee designed
specifically to sell your property. My methods for
exposure to the marketplace are second to none.
I set the stage for a sale when I show your property.
Arriving before a potential buyer, I adjust details such
as lighting, music, window coverings, etc. to best showcase
Every sale is different, and guiding a sale through closing
is a balancing act on a high wire. Details like
government regulations and paperwork are watched carefully
by our staff transaction coordinator. Obstacles
like financing and appraisal problems are personal addresses.
I've walked the walk a few hundred times!
