Welcome to my Website
Thank you for visiting my website. I am always eager and ready to discuss any questions and assist in all real estate matters. Wherever I go people always ask...'How's the market'? I can tell you, "it's great!" No matter what the market, there is a buyer and seller just waiting to connect. We are now experiencing an active market. Sellers are getting SOLD and buyers are buying. Steady low rates and various mortgage programs are available to fit the individual. Some may qualify for 100% USDA financing or home buyer grants. It's a perfect time to make the move!
LET'S REVIEW SOME IMPORTANT FACTORS ABOUT SELLING
Selling a home is a big decision and usually a very exciting one. Yet for some, it may be a very difficult time. Whatever your personal reason, putting your house on the market will always bring about a number of important questions. Here are a couple of common questions I hear when meeting with clients.
Q.) How much is my home worth?
A.) As your realtor I will provide a Current Market Analysis (CMA)
This is a report of the current market activity. I research the most recent and comparable listings and sales within your location. This analysis compiles 4 very important categories to help define a most likely sales price. The purpose is to provide you knowledge, information and confidence to generate the best possible price.
Here's what we look at together:
1.) Active Listings *( homes currently listed for sale )
2.) Pending Sales *(homes that are under contract-not yet closed)
3.) Expired Listings *( homes that have failed to sell for various reasons )
4.) SOLD Listings *(closed transactions)'The actual price the buyer is willing to pay'
There are other factors that we discuss in order to benefit you the most. The selling process, marketing plan, staging, de-cluttering, maintenance suggestions, worthwhile updates, necessary vs unnecessary home improvements, etc.
Q.) How do I get started?
A.) Lets face it ... With the internet being such a source of information, most recent studies have shown that both buyers and seller will search real estate activity on line. They go to open houses, look through publications and drive through neighborhoods to see what is out there. It's a way to get a feel for the market.
However, it is advisable to consult a realtor early on to ensure a more efficient process. Once a buyer or seller becomes 'READY' to take action... a realtor will help make things happen to achieve your real estate goals.
As a full time realtor, I study the market everyday. I bring over 25 years of knowledge, expertise and a genuine desire to help my clients meet their goals. I can help with the simplest details or the most challenging matters with clear objective.
