Getting the Best Price for Your Home

Effective marketing is the key to selling your home quickly and getting the highest price. Aggressive, effective marketing of my listings is how I've become a top real estate agent in the local area. It's my job to effectively expose your property to as many qualified buyers as possible, allowing us to get the highest price the market will bear.

One of the most important elements of marketing your home effectively is setting the price right. Set the price too high, and will miss those qualified buyers who are waiting on new listings to hit the market. Remember, they have been looking for a while and have developed an idea of values in their own mind. If your property comes on the market to high, they will pass on it thinking that since it is a new listing, you are not ready to sell for a "Realistic Price" yet. They won't want to waste time making a lower offer even though it may be a fair price, and one that you may end up selling for later anyway! Much time can be wasted if you price your home to high in the beginning. You won't get any offers and your home will take longer to sell. Set it too low and you cheat yourself by not getting your home's full, fair value. As an expert in the local area real estate market, I will analyze the market and do an in depth Market Analysis on your home. We will review the information together and come up with the highest price possible for your property. I'll work closely with you to assure that everything possible is done to get the highest price, in the time frame you need.

The condition and appearance of your home are also critical factors in getting the best price for your home. I'll personally walk through your home with you and advise you of what you can do to properly stage your home most effectively. Some areas are much more important and more likely to pay off than others! Often, the buyer is motivated by emotional responses as much or more than financial issues. There are usually things I can point out to you that are easy and inexpensive, yet go a long way toward triggering those "buy" emotions.

As your agent, I'll negotiate aggresively on your behalf throughout the entire process to ensure that your best interests are protected. Real estate negotiations and contracts can be intimidating in their complexity. Most people have almost no experience in these negotiations. After all, how often do you buy or sell a new house? As a top real estate professional, getting you the best terms and prices in all negotiations is simply part of my job.
