Determining Your Properties Value

A Competitive Market Analysis (CMA) is created to estimate the value of your home – under current market conditions. It’s a vert time-sensitive report that looks at the attributes of your property, as well as other relevant properties in your area.

Active Listings – The more properties available, the more competition you have your buyers.

Sold Listings – Compare the sale prices of homes with their list prices, and you’ll see the strength of the market. Ultimately, a home’s value is determined by the highest agreed-upon price between a buyer and a seller.

Expired Listings – Homes that are priced higher than the market supports often results in few showing and no sale. Apply CMA data to ensure your property is priced to actively attract buyers, not just sit on the market.

How Quickly Will Your Property Sell?

Listing price is the single most important factor in the sale of your property. The best way to ensure the timely sale of your property is to price it competitively from the beginning.

The better the condition of your property, the more it will stand apart from the competition. Homes in superior condition tend to sell faster and bring higher prices.

By exposing your property to the broadest possible audience through a coordinated marketing plan, you’ll have a better chance of attracting a qualified buyer.

Your flexibility in negotiating the terms of your agreement, can also enhance your ability to sell your property.

Pricing Your Property to Sell

I understand your desire to maximize the value of your property. Together, we'll determine a price point that reflects its true worth in the market while remaining competitive. Your preferred timeline and motivation, along with a pricing appraisal, will also influence our decision. It's crucial not to start with an inflated price, as overpriced homes tend to linger longer on the market, potentially deterring buyers. Listings receive the most attention in the initial weeks, so hitting the market with a strategic price is essential. With today's informed buyers, it's vital to price your home correctly from the beginning to avoid being overlooked in favor of properties priced closer to fair market value.

Making Good First Impressions

When showcasing your property, remember you only have one chance to make a good impression. To increase its desirability and sell at the best price and in the shortest time, consider these tips: prioritize curb appeal by maintaining a tidy exterior, focus on cleanliness throughout the home, declutter to create a spacious feel, promptly fix any broken or damaged items, and enhance rooms with affordable updates like replacing worn-out items. These efforts can significantly improve buyers' perception of your property and increase its attractiveness in the market.
