SELLERS
1. HOW MUCH DO YOU THINK I CAN GET FOR MY HOUSE?
Each home is unique and every market is different. The first rule of thumb is to look at what other homes in your neighborhood are selling for. How do they compare to your house? Are they larger or smaller? Remodeled or not? An extremely important factor is how your REALTOR® markets your property and the amount and type of exposure they get for you. This can make the difference between just selling your house and getting the absolute best price possible.
2. WHAT DO I NEED TO DO BEFORE I PUT MY HOME IN THE MARKET?
Most important—call us! Before you do any work or spend any money, we’ll walk you through all your options and explain the best ways to maximize your efforts. We’ll work with you to ensure your property is staged to appeal to the greatest number of buyers, increasing your odds for multiple offers.
3. WHAT FEES ARE ASSOCIATED WITH SELLING MY PROPERTY?
In addition to commissions due the brokerages involved, there are title fees, escrow fees, and possible costs for repairs. Call us and we’ll be happy to discuss your individual scenario.
4. HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
How long it will take is very closely related to pricing and condition. In the current market, if a property is priced correctly—not too high and not too low—we should expect to see an offer within 3 weeks, if not sooner. Of course this depends also on condition, location and price range. For example, higher end properties tend to take a little more time. We’d be happy to give a free market evaluation and discuss timing and pricing.
