Selling a house on your own can be an overwhelming and risky task. There's local, national and global advertising to plan and budget for, open houses and private showings to arrange, numerous federal, state and local disclosures to deal with, buyers to qualify, purchase offers to negotiate, contract contingencies and deadlines to track and manage, and critical paperwork to fill out. In addition, NAR's recently-published study shows sellers working on their own get an average of about 16% less for their homes than sellers with professional representation. Make it easy on yourself by putting the sale of your home in the hands of our experienced professionals. We have extensive experience marketing properties and positioning them to their best advantage to save you time and money.
Initially, we'll perform a comparable market analysis (CMA) to help determine the most appropriate list price for your home. Next, we'll provide interior home-staging advice and perhaps suggest exterior landscaping changes that will help put your best foot forward and draw buyers in. We'll advertise your home through a variety of methods, including local publications, social media, and online MLS listings. We will also showcase your home as part of our site's Featured Listings to provide your home with increased exposure.
When it comes to negotiating a purchase offer, we'll make sure that you get the best price and terms the market will bear. Remember this: there are many moving parts to any offer; price is obviously critical, but there are numerous other terms that have to be negotiated with your goals in mind. We'll help you understand contract contingencies and details of the closing process, in addition to handling all the paperwork such as federal and state-required disclosures for you. Essentially, we're here to represent you and your best interests throughout the entire selling process, and to make sure that your real estate transaction is a positive and profitable experience.
