Computer generated algorithms on websites use historic, public sales data and trends to estimate a home’s value. Typically, they are not a good representation of a home’s actual value and have a large margin of error. They may not represent the true value of the home as they cannot take into account the nuances of our local market nor are they aware of any improvements that have been made to the home. I will give you an accurate estimate with a Comparable Market Analysis (CMA). This report is personally prepared to give you a clear understanding of competing properties, market trends, and recent sales in your area.
The 2 most crucial factors are PRICE and EXPOSURE. Putting your home in it’s best light and clearly highlighting the features of your home brings buyers who are looking for a home like yours through the front door. Elements like professional photography, video tours, home staging, signage, internet marketing and a properly generated listing are some of the things that I provide..
Once your home is on the market and a buyer is interested, he or she will submit an offer. You are then able to accept, reject or counter the offer. My role is to help you understand the contract and negotiate on your behalf. After going under contract, I will represent your interested during the inspection period.
The date of closing is negotiated in the contract. On closing day, you will leave your home broom clean and hand over your keys after you sign paperwork. Closings can be done in person at the title company and/or attorney's office, by Fed-ex delivery with a notary, by a mobile closer or in some cases a remote (online) notary.
