Selling with a REALTOR®
Many people decide to try and sell real estate without a REALTOR. In many cases, trying to sell without an agent can lead to a great deal of stress, and thousands of dollars lost on the sale. A REALTOR is your partner in any real estate transaction. I work with real estate everyday, and I am familiar with our local market. I’ll help you set the best possible sale price, advertise the property, and negotiate with buyers.
Setting the Listing Price
Choosing the right price for your property is critical to your success in selling. To get the right price we’ll need to compare your property to other properties nearby that have recently sold. We’ll do this by reviewing recent sales data of properties similar to yours from the local MLS System and creating a comparative market analysis. We’ll also need to take into account:
- any major renovations
- any repairs that need to be done before selling
- how much you need from the sale in order to make a profit, break even, or buy your next home
Marketing Your Home
Once we’ve chosen the right price I’ll begin aggressively marketing your property. I’ll use traditional methods such as:
- yard signs
- newspaper advertisements
- open houses
It’s imperative however, that we also advertise your property on the internet. Recent statistics suggest that more than 80% of buyers shop for homes online. I’ll list your property on the local MLS® System and several other real estate websites.
Negotiating the Sale
Once your property has attracted a buyer, we’ll need to negotiate the purchase offer. Not only will we negotiate the final sale price, but we’ll also consider other contingencies such as financing, inspection, etc. Having a REALTOR on your side can help immensely with this critical part of the selling process.
