Together We Will Determine your Home's Value
While online estimates can be a good start, together we will work up an accurate estimate based on local trends, your home condition, similar homes in the area, & more. We know that online estimates don’t know your street, your neighborhood, or your curb appeal. Nor are they up to date keeping what sold in their analytics. You don’t want to list your home for yesterday’s value. Click Here for an example of a Comprehensive Market Analysis that considers what makes your house stand out.
Prepare Your Home for Sale
Before you list your home, you’ll want to make sure your home is as marketable as possible. You may want to consider some repairs that could help add value to your property, such as fixing any water damage or foundation concerns. Even small cosmetic changes can have a big impact in the eyes of a buyer, such as replacing outdated light fixtures or giving your home a fresh coat of paint. I can work with you to help identify updates that may help increase the value of your home.
Understanding the Offer
Once your home is on the market and a buyer is interested, he or she will submit an offer to me through their own agent. While the offer may differ from your asking price, you are able to reject or counter it if you’d like. I will assist you understanding the conditions, provisions, and obligations of your contact. If legal advice is appropriate, an attorney can be brought in to assist.
Contract to Closing Challenges
Once a ratified contract is in hand, the route to closing is navigated through various contingencies that I will point out and guide you. Some common examples include: mortgage contingency, home inspection contingency, and buyer home sale contingency. These are normal but satisfactory completion of each is critical to getting to the closing table. Each paragraph of what is normally a 10+ page contract has meaning and assisting you in understanding your obligations is part of my support of you.
