Listing a home for sale requires a great deal of preparation and execution. In order for a home to sell, it needs maximum market exposure in the most desirable way possible to a potential buyer. Additionally, pricing your home using a competitive market analysis by a realtor who understands the market is imperative. Real estate agents and buyers know what a 300K home looks like, what a 400K home looks like and so on so understanding the real value of your home versus your desired selling price is important. I work with home sellers to come up with the perfect selling price and to prepare the home to show well to potential buyers. The goal is to sell at the most money possible the quickest.
Why Hire a Listing Agent
You were once a home buyer and may have visited a home listed for sale by the owner. The chances are those homes were either over-priced or filled with clutter. Even if the house shows well and is priced right, a buyer can’t wonder whether the transaction will be done in a safe manner to protect his or her interest. What if there is a disagreement in negotiation during the transaction? You are without a professional realtor representing you in an adversarial situation. For that reason, most buyers do not like homes that are being sold by the owner. That is why most buyers (about 90% of them) work with a real estate buyer’s agent to buy their home.
Agent commission is an inevitable part of the equation when selling your home but hiring a great listing agent can still save you money and legal troubles. I am a realtor but also a licensed attorney who can help you not only market and sell your home, but to transact in the safest manner possible.
Full-service and More
You need a real estate listing agent who can commit full-time to selling your home for a reasonable listing commission. Listing your home for sale is not just data entry into the MLS. It requires so much more such as marketing, coordination and communication with various parties with attention to details. With our service, you will receive a full service from start to finish. We pay for your stunning professional photography, and create a home tour video. Your home will appear throughout this website in the top position on the front page and neighborhood listings and will appear in prominent positions in third party websites like Zillow, Realtor.com and Redfin. We market your property aggressively online, hold open houses and contact every buyer’s agent in town that your home is for sale. We also market your home on Facebook.
Selling and Buying
About 25% of home buyers are also sellers. Selling and buying at the same time can be a demanding job. In many cases, sellers sell first and then buy while your home is in escrow. There are exceptions and it really depends on the seller’s financial situation and also the demand of the target home to purchase. Let me talk to you and figure out which is your best strategy. Whichever you go, selling and buying is a very time-sensitive and delicate situation and I will coordinate everything so the transition is smooth.
