I can help determine what your home is worth.
Perhaps the most important step in selling a home is setting the right price. Many factors go into determining the price for your home – among them the condition of your home, location and the selling price of comparable properties in your area. Knowledge of the current market determines a lot of your decision making. The current market is considered “quite hot.” It is, therefore, even more important to have the help of a professional. Before you put your home on the market, I will provide a free pre-market consultation and a Competitive Market Analysis (CMA). I will then be able to recommend the price, keeping in mind that the price must be in line with the price of comparable properties and realistic enough to encourage buyers to make a purchase offer. I offer the CMA at no cost or obligation.
As a reminder, this current market is incredibly hot. For this reason, now more than ever, it is important for you to have a seasoned professional. Why, you may ask? Well, I will tell you. The reason you want to list your home with me, or another agent, is because we believe in the importance of competition. In the free market, competition drives the market. If you place a home on the market for $425,000, the more offers you receive, the more likely the offer will come in above the asking price of $425,000. I just sold a home for $25,000 over asking price, and this was made possible because there was so much competition. The agent is the key to marketing your home in such a way to make it competitive. I will cover more of this in the marketing section!
