- Price: Pricing your home is both an art and a science. The 'science' is based on a thorough and comprehensive review of recent comparable sales. As a Realtor®, I understand what appraisers value and how to provide them the information they need to justify the price. I spend a lot of time analyzing the data, examining the nuances of your home and the neighborhood and establishing a price that will get you the most money and still meet the appraiser's value.The 'art' of pricing comes in when the market is changing seasonally, when there is something unique and special about your home or when the market is quickly escalating. Certainly, my objective is to get you the most possible money; knowing when I can push the limits and price your home higher than others is when the 'art' of pricing comes into play.
- Preparation: Maybe the past couple of years have been busy for you and you have neglected some of the regular maintenance to your home. Rather than doing some random surface improvements that may not satisfy buyers, I can help you spend your money on the things that will let buyers know that you care for your home. By pointing out areas that are often of concern to buyers and their agents I can help you make targeted improvements and repairs. Because I also work with buyers, I can help you determine how to spend your limited budget (every budget is limited when selling--no one wants to spend more than they have to on a house they are selling!) on those improvements that will give you the greatest bang-for-the-buck by being appealing to buyers.
- Marketing: All this work is worthless if the buyers don't find your house. Most buyers these days use Buyer's Agents, but they often direct these agents to the houses they want to see. My job is to make your house easy to find and intriguing to look at on-line. Our objective is to get those buyers in to see your home...and write an offer!
