One service that I believe is extremely
important in real estate markets is helping
my listing clients to objectively evaluate
their homes for marketability.
Some brokerages do a once–over to get the information to put into the various information fields in the MLS®, Multiple Listing Service. However, I go much more into the detail of the features, characteristics and condition of your home.
I will want to postpone some photos until we’ve worked with you to do a thorough inspection of your home with a whole lot of details in mind.
Every buyer who sees your home will be comparing it to the competition in your area and price range. How your home compares is critical to how soon you sell it and at what price.
Interior Features & Characteristics:
While the number of bedrooms and baths are not something you’ll be changing to compete better with other homes, you do need to objectively compare them in order to end up with a listing price that will get your property sold.
Some things I can consider for improvements, others I just need to know how your home compares to other homes buyers will be seeing.
Built date and obsolescence
Floors & walls condition, paint, etc.
Lighting, skylights, windows
Exterior Features & Characteristics:
That “curb appeal” thing really does mean something. When a prospective buyer first drives up in front of your home, they’re going to get a first impression that is very important. I help you to look at things like landscaping, exterior paint and condition. This is an area in which small expenditures can yield big results. It’s a fact that some buyers will ask to leave without ever stepping across the threshold if they get a bad first curb appeal impression.
Condition Of Home:
Minor repairs can also make a major difference. Many buyers assume that a need for minor repairs indicates a general lack of fundamental maintenance over time. They’ll discount their offer, if they make one, thinking they’ll have a lot of work to do to bring the home to a good condition. So, I'm honest with you about things that I see and buyers will see and consider in their evaluation. From cracked window panes to scarred walls or doors, we’ll let you know what we believe is important and make suggestions.
I'm here to make sure that your home enters the market in the very best competitive position possible.
A thorough and objective evaluation
is an important step.
We have worked with many sellers in many different situations. Some have been kind enough to leave us a review!
