Tips For Selling A Home

Preparations And Pricing

When determining an amount to sell your home be reasonable about the price you set. It’s always be better to establish a fair market value with the help from your agent rather than setting a price you might think your home is worth.  If you price it too high, your home may stay on the market too long because it is either being beat out by the competition or potential buyers may think that something is wrong with it.  A mistake that many homeowners have to be aware of is the possibility of getting caught chasing the market down.  When this happens you may end up selling it for less than what you could have gotten if you had started out with a realistic asking price.  It’s better to have buyers bidding up your price than having to lower it!

We all know first impressions are the most important. This is particularly critical when it comes to curb appeal.  Many buyers will drive up to your house and will make a decision immediately on the exterior condition of the house.  Once you decide to sell your home it’s imperative to get your home in “showing and selling” condition. Cleaning up the backyard, mowing and edging the lawn and maybe even planting some flowers will go a long way in presentation.  Having your home look uncluttered and some fresh new paint - both inside and outside, will impact how quickly it sells and the price the buyer is willing to pay.  These are simple inexpensive cosmetic things that can be done that will get people out of their cars when driving up that will help attract buyers.  Other important items that would be wise to do prior to listing (many buyers will look for this) is a clear termite inspection report and roof certification.  Ask me how i can help you with this.

Getting It Sold For Top $

soldProfessional Advice

Have you ever wondered why some of the nicest houses in the neighborhood seem to stay on the market forever? Or why some of your neighbors seem to settle for less than their home is probably worth?

In today's market, it's more important than ever that you work with an agent that has the knowledge to get you the most money for your house, including:

• How to set a price that will attract the most buyers

• The most likely buyer for your home and how best to reach them

• What features buyers are looking for and expect from the homes in your neighborhood

• What marketing techniques are driving the most buyer traffic

• Will your real estate agent hold frequent open houses and provide you with open house information?

• Leveraging and with social media demographics.

Why settle for an agent who will simply put a "For Sale" sign in your yard, when you could have one that will get the "SOLD" sign up as soon as possible! As your local real estate expert, I would be honored to work with you on selling your home and assist you on your next move.  

Tips For Buying A Home

Preparing To Buy 

They say it’s wise to know what your limitations are, and that holds true when purchasing that dream home of yours.  If you are like most, we all want to get the best possible, sweetest deal and the best bang for our buck.

When you’re ready to find a home, the last thing you want to do is to find out that you are reaching a little too high and have all those wonderful emotions of living your dream go up in smoke!  Before you start looking, it would be wise to know what you can afford so you're searching in the right neighborhood and price range.  It will save you and an agents time when searching for a home and will ultimatelty help you in negotiating an offer. Here’s why:

These days with stiff competition, having a pre-qualification letter from a bank puts you in a strong position to make an offer and it gives the seller a sense of comfort that your offer is strong and could be their best choice over others.  Having spoken to a loan officer and taking care of any possible credit blemishes early on will be a wise decision.

Also if you start off by getting a pre-approval from a bank or mortgage company, you can sort your search by price and feel confident that you are looking at realistic aspirations, identify the right neighborhoods, and find your dream home much faster.

If you are pre-approved, it gives you more room to haggle.  Sellers will feel good about your offer may be more willing to lower the asking price, and may include appliances, cover closing costs or make other allowances.  The stronger your offer is the better chance you will have in pursuading the seller to view you as a serious buyer and thus buying the house.
