In real estate markets home prices vary frequently and suddenly. The Brad and Cathy Team has valuable experience and local market knowledge to help sellers, like you, prepare your home for sale.
Price It Right
No matter how beautiful your home may be, buyers will compare it to other homes for sale in the market at that time. Therefore, pricing your home correctly is one of the most important factors in getting your home sold. To properly set your price, and your expectations, we examine the record of home sales in your neighborhood over the past several months and can provide you with a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA).
We help you prepare your home for sale by facilitating pricing, physically preparing a home for sale, navigating negotiations and much more. The Brad and Cathy Team is adept and experienced in working with other real estate professionals including home inspectors, home appraisers, mortgage bankers, title companies, and can guide you through the entire real estate process from selling a current home to purchasing a new home.
At some point in the sale process your home will be inspected. Planning a pre-sale inspection can help determine potential issues and enable you to address them prior to putting your home on the market so you are fully prepared for a smooth sales process.
Prepare to Negotiate
In real estate, the final selling price is negotiable. Plan to negotiate when an offer is received. For example, before you lower the price, you may be able to add value to the transaction by including appliances and / or closing costs. The Brad and Cathy Team will assist you with crafting counter offers and negotiating tips and techniques.
Seal the Deal
Once you come to terms on the sale price, it is in your best interest to close the deal as quickly as possible. To more easily and quickly complete the transaction, it is prudent to have disclosure documents and home upgrade and enhancement records available.
