Negotiation and Offers
Having an experienced REALTOR® in your corner is especially important come negotiation time. This is more than just a financial arrangement; it’s an emotional one, as well. Selling your home can mean a job change, school change for your children, and possibly leaving behind everything familiar to you and your family. People will be coming in and out of your home and sizing it up for themselves.
As your agent, I will wear many hats. You can be confident that I know my market thoroughly and can answer all questions about your home, the community and the local real estate market. From fielding phone calls about your home, watching out for potential problems in offers and counter-offers to drafting complex paperwork, I will work hard to make your home-selling process as stress free as possible and get your home sold in the quickest possible time frame while protecting your best interests.
The difference between a staged home and an unstaged home can translate to thousands of dollars in the sale price. Properly staged homes often sell for more money and can even trigger a bidding war on your home! Clutter often makes rooms seem smaller, and overwhelming decorations may prevent a potential buyer from envisioning their own style in the room. This is a time to truly accept that you’re moving forward and allow yourself to picture your home through potential buyers’ eyes. Watch the video below to see how Home Staging can help buyers see your home as more attractive and help your home sell faster AND for more money! When you are ready, I will help you or recommend a professional stager so together we can prepare your home and get it SOLD!
Marketing Your Home
When listing you home, you will have many real estate agents competing to work with you. What makes me different than all the rest? The services I offer. Many real estate agents are stuck in the old marketing ways of the past and don’t take the time to learn new ways to market your home like Social Media Marketing, Single Property Web pages, Blogging Your Listing then sharing it virtually everywhere, Virtual tours, etc. That’s one of the things that make me different. I am constantly looking for new ways to bring more traffic and buyers to your home.
I understand the importance of using technology and social media to get your home sold fast and for top dollar. My services go above and beyond our local competitors.
And don’t fall for the old open house routine. Rarely, if ever, are houses sold at an open house. Open houses do little more than benefit the agent, who is able to pick up more buyers. Especially in today’s digital world where your house can be seen almost immediately online by anyone who is truly interested.
Once you’ve finally accepted an offer on your home, inspections will be done to satisfy both the buyer and their mortgage lender. Many sale agreements are incredibly complex and feature a number of qualifications and fine print. This can be confusing and may include additional requests and addendums. I am familiar with these documents as a REALTOR® and can help guide you through the process.
Packing and Moving
Depending on how far you’re moving, you may require the assistance of a professional mover. Large, bulky items like television sets and furniture are not generally accepted by companies like FedEx or UPS. Consider not only the cost to move, but other factors like time and proper equipment. Though professional movers may seem pricey at first, when you look at the time and money to get similar results, you may reconsider.
Be sure to get moving estimates in writing and compare several companies. Ask for discounts and be sure to only use licensed, bonded movers. Also make a checklist, or ask me for one, so that you’re organized and efficient.
