Selling Your Home



Are you considering the sale of your home? If so, you may be overwhelmed with terms like:

  • Comparative Market Analysis
  • Fair Market Value
  • Asking Price
  • "Curb Appeal"
  • Home Protection Plans
  • Multiple Listing Service
  • Escrow

A licensed real estate professional can help translate the complex world of real estate for you. After all, selling your home isn't as simple as mere supply and demand. A good real estate agent understands market trends and knows how to use the most up-to-date technology to sell your home.

I'll do more than stick a "For Sale" sign on your lawn. I'll meet with you to learn your expectations, needs, and priorities. I'll help you form a pricing strategy based on the latest information. Most importantly, I'll develop and implement a dynamic marketing strategy tailored to you and your home. I'll be there to help you every step of the way, from consultation through closing and beyond.

Often the first step in selling your home is making sure it's ready for the market in the first place. Some sellers rush a home onto the market without properly preparing it for the public. By considering early on improvements that you may need to make, you can save yourself future headaches.

The amount and kind of work that you should do depends largely on the price you intend to ask, the time you have to sell, and the current condition of the house. If your house is in good condition and you're pressed for time, do the small things that can make a big cosmetic difference. New paint, re-grouted tile in the bathroom and kitchen, new carpet in the major traffic areas-these are the kinds of things that can be relatively inexpensive for you yet important to potential buyers.

As far as major projects are concerned, avoid making improvements that may come down to a matter of taste. For instance, most buyers will appreciate newly tiled bathroom floors or brand new professional roofing, but not all buyers will be swayed by an expensive swimming pool in the back yard. Make sure that the investment in time and money you make for any project will be recouped in the sale of your house.
