We take the marketing and sale of your home seriously.
We will provide you with a complete, in depth market analysis of what you can realistically expect to sell your home for in today’s market. This Comparative Market Analysis is based on first of all a visual inspection of your home, recent homes of similar homes that have sold in your immediate area and also the homes that are for sale in direct competition with you. This enables not only to have an edge on other sellers but allows you to lead the market, not follow it with price reductions.
The Market is Good
With the number of homes for sale being at an all time low now is a good time to sell if you are looking to move. Inventory is low so prices have gone up. We are coming into season with a shortage of available homes for sale so now is a good time to maximize the value of your home. Have you noticed the number of new homes being built? The builders have been ramping up to build as many homes as they can and sell them this winter season. While available resale home inventory is still low you have a window of opportunity to maximize the value of your home while the market is strong.
We will keep you up-to-date on what is happening in the marketplace and the price, financing, terms and conditions of competing properties. With us, you will know exactly where to price to get your home sold.
