YOU ONLY HAVE ONE CHANCE TO MAKE A FIRST IMPRESSION
Preparing your Home to List on the Market
CLEAR THE CLUTTER
When the agent is showing your home, you do not want to be present. Let the buyers take their time through your home to get a good feel for it. Let them talk freely about their likes and dislikes. If you are present, they will feel rushed and feel like they cannot express their opinions.
Ever hear loud music and someone say if it's too loud, your too old? Well in this case that is 100% False. If you choose to play music in your home, make sure it is easy listening and set a low volume. This should be a accent to the walk through and not overbear it.
Most of us love pets. Most of our pets are considered family but when showing a home make sure Big Jake and Little Patches are not in the home. Not all of us like dogs or cats and some are allergic and even scared of these animals. Nothing turns off a buyer like your family pooch barking and jumping on you during the showing.
So you are deciding to sell your Home. There are many factors that go into your decision!
I want to sit down with you and figure the best solution for you and your family.
Freq. Asked Questions
Do I need a REALTOR to sell my home?
The answer is No you don't....you can sale your home by yourself, BUT beware most For Sale By Owners make costly mistakes and sometimes take longer to sell than they were prepared for ultimately making less money than if they would have listed with a REALTOR.
You should always use a licensed professional when it comes to selling your biggest asset, your home. My team has the proper education, experience, and expertise to maximize the sale of your home. We will guide you through the entire process and reach a successful closing.
How do we determine the List Price?
To determine that value, it is necessary to look at comparable properties of "Like Kind" in the neighborhood which sold recently, usually within the last 90 Days. When calculating your home's value, consider your property the “subject property” and the sold properties “comparable properties.” Homes that are currently Available "On market" or even in Pending status have Zero impact on the current value of the subject property.
What the Difference between Market Value and Appraisal Value?
Market Value is what a ready, willing and able buyer would pay for a home.
Appraisal Value is what a state Licensed Appraiser reports what your home is worth.
What if there is a discrepancy between Market value and Appraisal Value?
So in Las Vegas, this is a common issue. A Seller feels there home is worth and certain price and the Appraisal comes in lower than the sales price.
Seller's have to remember, a Buyer that is financing their bank will only loan up to appraised value for the home. In some cases, Buyer can come up with the difference in cash.
This comes to hiring a REALTOR that is experienced and know how to effectively value and list your property correctly from the beginning.
