What updates do I need to sell my home?
Updates needed really depend on your targeted price point, current competition and what your home offers compared to the current market. An in-home consultation can help with strategically planning the updates that are needed for your home to sell and often, updates are helpful whereas upgrades may not be necessary.
How can I find out what my home is worth?
A home value can fluctuate over time and is very dependent upon the current Real Estate market – supply and demand. The use of automated estimation tools, such as the “Zestimate” may be helpful for a “guestimate”. Alternatively, may choose to hire a professional home Appraiser who has the tools and training to provide an in-depth evaluation to provide an “opinion of value” based on recently sold comparable homes. Ultimately, your home’s “worth” is what a “ready”, and qualified (“able”) buyer is “willing” to pay.
To find out a recommended listing price, along with pricing and position strategy advice, a professional REALTOR®️ can do a thorough Market Analysis. This comprehensive analysis considers the unique features of your home, current competition, as well as recently sold homes.
My house is not ready yet, when should I contact a Professional?
The sooner, the better! It’s best to get the advice you need early on in the selling process so that you can make any recommended improvements in time to meet your moving goals. Your Real Estate Professional can guide you towards having your home “show ready” and help you to know how to prioritize to work on the items that will have the most favorable impact on buyer’s perception of you home.
How much does it cost and when do I pay the REALTOR fees?
Compensation to your agent is called “commission”. Commission is often a % of sales price. There is no set fee. Each agency/brokerage will have different levels of service and inclusions. Please fill out the “Contact” form and we can further discuss the sale of your home and costs. Fees are typically paid at “closing”/final settlement, when your home sells. Our full service offering include marketing, professional photos, transaction management and all consultative services.
I have too much stuff, how will I ever be able to sell/move?
Great question, and you are not alone. Moving can be overwhelming! But it doesn’t need to be. Help can be on the way. Part of our consultative services can help guide you with resources, including “clean-out” services, discounted storage PODS, and other customized recommendations.
