Tips to Buying and Selling A Home
There are several excellent reasons for selecting a professional Real Estate Agent to list your home for sale. My experience gives me the ability to network with other agents to promote your property. Selling your property depends on a lot more than advertising and signage. It takes referrals, word of mouth advertising and networking. I can help guide you through the potential problems associated with appraisal, inspection, survey and the financing process. I can instruct you on contractors who may be required for repairs or other issues that need to be completed before closing
I am committed to helping you sell your home. I will develop a property marketing plan that I will use to promote your property to the widest possible audience.
The comparative market analysis is carefully prepared for you. It analyzes homes similar to yours. The aim of this market analysis is to achieve the maximum selling price for your home, while being able to sell your home within a relatively short period of time.
Determining a sales price is key to selling your home. The market value of your home is what the buyer is willing to pay. It is determined by comparing similar homes that have sold or are for sale in the area. Overpricing your house in the belief that you can reduce the price back later is a strategy that can backfire badly. By the time you reduce your price, you may miss out on a surge of interest in properties like yours. Also, if prices are lowered, buyers may wonder if there is something wrong with the property that kept other buyers away. So to keep from selling your property at below market value and from wasting valuable time, don’t fall into the overpricing trap.
You only get one opportunity to make a good impression, so you want to make it count. When a showing is scheduled, it is best not to be in the home. Make sure your property is in good condition, is clean and clutter free and repairs have been completed to make your home ready to sell.
TIPS FOR BUYING A HOME
Check the selling prices of comparable homes in your area.
Use a mortgage calculator to get an idea of your monthly mortgage.
Find out what your total monthly housing costs would be including taxes and homeowners insurance.
Find out what you will pay in closing costs.
Look at your budget and determine how a house fits into it.
Talk to a reputable realtor in your area.
Remember to look at the big picture. It is a great way to build wealth but it can have unexpected costs including appliances, roof repairs or other problems.
If you need a loan to purchase your house, it is a good idea to visit with your lender before looking at home to see what amount you qualify for before looking at houses. It saves you a lot of time and disappointment. Get Pre Approved!
Look beyond the cosmetic appearance of a home and look for the following:
If customers can’t find it, it doesn’t exist. Clearly list and describe the services you offer. Also, be sure to showcase a premium service.
Having a big sale, on-site celebrity, or other event? Be sure to announce it so everybody knows and gets excited about it.
Are your customers raving about you on social media? Share their great stories to help turn potential customers into loyal ones.
Running a holiday sale or weekly special? Definitely promote it here to get customers excited about getting a sweet deal.
Have you opened a new location, redesigned your shop, or added a new product or service? Don't keep it to yourself, let folks know.
Customers have questions, you have answers. Display the most frequently asked questions, so everybody benefits.
