Price Your Home to the Market

Sellers who work with a local Realtor to optimize the price of their home based on its unique features and surrounding neighborhood are often able to receive the highest price for their market and sell more quickly. An overpriced home can stay on the market too long, leading buyers to believe something could be wrong with it. Lowering the price too many times can make a seller look desperate.

The nature of this market is that you’re going to have more first-time buyers who are more dependent on financing. Consider your options for offering buyer incentives. In 2015, 37% of sellers nationwide offered buying incentives. Providing appliance warranties or covering a percentage of closing costs can give you a huge advantage over the competition.

Move-In Ready

It’s a no-brainer why homes sell faster and for a higher price when they are ready for new owners to get settled in right away. You should strongly consider making necessary repairs and fixing major eyesores, inside and out, before listing your home.

Moving is a lot of work, so tacking on a large to-do list for a potential buyer can easily be a deal breaker. Studies show that move-in ready, professionally staged homes sell up to 40 percent faster! I can show you the steps you need to take for your home to make a huge first impression.

Using the Right Tools

You might have the nicest home in your neighborhood, but how do you tell the world that it’s for sale? Times are always changing, and that holds especially true for real estate. I know your local market and how to price your home correctly from the start, showcasing its best qualities.

I can provide high quality photography to grab a buyer’s attention and promote your home’s best features and selling points. Then I place your home in view of thousands of potential buyers on a vast network of listing sites. My marketing strategies will help your home sell for the highest possible price, in the shortest amount of time.

I possess the tools to give you the smoothest sales experience possible. Whether you are considering a sale now or in the future, I would love the opportunity to speak with you and hope the following data will provide some insight on real estate activity in your neighborhood.
