What You Do & Dont Control Seller Controls: Property Condition Availability for Showing Price Home Warranty Seller Doesnt Control: Competition Buyers or Sellers Market Interest Rates When The Perfect Buyer Walks Thru Door
Selling Price Vs. Timing Timing is extremely important in the real estate market. A property attracts the most activity from the real estate community and potential buyers when it is first listed. It has the greatest opportunity to sell when it is new on the market. If the home is over-priced it may become stale on the market. WEEKS ON MARKET ACTIVITYACTIVITY
Pricing Factors As this triangle graph illustrates, more buyers purchase their properties at market value than above market value. If you price your property at market value, you are exposing it to a much greater percentage of prospective buyers and you are increasing your opportunity for a sale. +15% +10% Market Value -10% -15% 10% 30% 60% 75% 90% PERCENTAGE OF BUYERS ASKING PRICE IMPORTANCE OF INTELLIGENT PRICING If you price your home above market value, youll likely lose money!
Pricing Misconceptions It is very important to price your property at a competitive market value when first signing of the listing agreement. Historically, your first offer is usually your best offer. Buyers & Sellers Determine Value The value of your property is determined by what a BUYER is willing to pay and a SELLER is willing to accept in todays market. Buyers make their pricing decision based on comparing your property to other property SOLD in your area. WHAT YOU PAID WHAT ANOTHER AGENT SAYS WHAT YOU NEED WHAT YOU WANT COST TO REBUILD TODAY WHAT YOUR NEIGHBOR SAYS.
Comparatitive Market Analysis (CMA) Recent Sales Current Listings = Competition Expired Listings = What has not sold
Focusing On Results The proper balance of these factors will expedite your sale. LOCATION COMPETITION TIMING CONDITION TERMS PRICE SOLD
Preparing For The Offer ACCEPTANCE. Signed by all parties, dated, delivered… congratulations, youre on your way to having your property sold! REJECTION. Unconditional… unfortunately, your home is still on the market. COUNTER OFFER. Any change to the contract constitutes a counter offer. You are now in the renegotiation stage. NO ACTION. Equals rejection. Your home is still on the market. In a Buyers Market, offers to purchase routinely come in low, whereas in a Sellers Market, offers are closer to the asking price. Do not be offended by any offer received. Be offended by buyers who tour your property and dont submit an offer.

Our Service Process
Inspections Inspections and potential repairs are the number one reason sales dont close. Typically, buyers have a certain number of days in which to inspect the property and accept or reject the property based upon these mechanical and structural inspections. Inspectors are supposed to find all the problems! SELLER SEES THEIR HOUSE INSPECTOR SEES THE HOUSE BUYER SEES YOUR HOUSE Save Yourself Time, Money and Disappointment Do Deferred Maintenance Now!
Home Warranty Plans H ome warranty plans go a long way to alleviate some risks and concerns. For a modest price, the seller can provide to the buyer a one year warranty covering specified heating, plumbing, electrical, water heater or appliance breakdowns. Coverage under most plans commences at closing. In all cases, there are important limitations and exclusions (example: appliances/systems must be operative at commencement of coverage).
