|We Work Hard to Make it Easy for You
We understand that you have many things happening besides selling your home. Most people feel they are not prepared to sell yet. The basement is full of junk, the carpets have spots and the yard has a bare patch. We not only make recommendations as what to do to get your house ready to sell, but we have a list of tried and true people to help you do it; some of the people will even wait to get paid until you move! Few things are more nerve-racking than waiting day after day, week after week for your house to sell. We have many years of marketing know-how to present your house to the right buyers in the best way. Let our experience of negotiating over 1,500 sales go to work for you to get you the best price and conditions.After we have a buyer our work is only one quarter done.

We know that you want to get the highest possible price. That's why we research the current market to see what the highest reasonable price is. Here are a few hints on setting the right price:
- A home purchase is done in a "Comparative Market." In other words, the buyer doesn't just look at one property and decide whether or not to buy it. Buyers look at multiple homes and decide which one best suits their needs so you have to know what properties you are competing against.
- Buyers get mortgages. The mortgage company appraises the house by comparing it to houses in the immediate area that have sold in the last 6 months. If you did manage to sell for much more than the neighbors, your buyer might not be able to finance it. You need to know how your home compares with similar homes that have sold recently.
- Try to stay under big price ceilings. Buyers look in brackets...$350,000-$400,000. If you are priced at $401,000 you will attract buyers who are looking from $400,000 to $450,000. They tend to buy the nicest house they see which is normally the most expensive.
- Be careful. Choosing the right price will put the most in your pocket. We all think our home is wonderful...and it has been for us. However, it is one of many many choices for buyer. If the price is too high it will become "stale" on the market. Like stale bread in the store, the only way to get it sold is reduce the price. A lot!
