Are you ready to sell your home? While part of the "getting ready" phase relates to repairs, painting and other home improvements, this is also a good time to assess the many other factors that are involved when you sell your home.
Is your home ready to be put on the market? Waiting until after your home is on the market to complete the pre-sale work can deter potential buyers. Why bother looking past the dirty carpet to the many other fine features that your home may offer, when there are so many homes on the market? Presentation is everything -- so get the work done before marketing the property. We can meet with you at your home to help select and identify the easy changes that you can make to be sure that from the day your house goes on the market, it will show at its best.
How much can you expect to net from the sale? Pricing the home based on what the seller wants to net always ends in failure. Sellers can control the "asking" price, but they don't control the "selling" price. The market does. Having your house priced properly is the number one factor in successfully selling your home. We are experienced in setting the price to get you the highest amount of money from the sale of your home, in the shortest amount of time.
Who will be your agent? Hiring an agent based on non-business factors is always a mistake. Make sure you're hiring a professional with a proven track record. It might be nice to hand over your largest asset to your nephew who just got his license, but for a transaction of this magnitude, it’s best to hire a professional with experience. With over 24 years in real estate, the Tim McIntyre Team has seen the ups and downs of the housing market. We’ll meet with you and ask direct questions about your circumstances and needs, and customize a selling plan to address your specific financial requirements.
Are you emotionally involved in the sale of the home? This is one of the biggest challenges home sellers face when putting their house on the market. Once you decide to sell your house, it's no longer a home, but a commodity. It needs to be prepared as a commodity, marketed as a commodity, and priced as a commodity. People are going to come in to kick the tires, so to speak, and you can't get emotional about how they may or may not appreciate the nuances of your home.
Do you have your ducks lined up? Just as when you were a first time buyer, you will want to arrange financing before jumping in and selecting a new home. We can recommend lenders to you who will work with you in determining how much home you will be able to afford. Are you ready to sell your home? While part of the "getting ready" phase relates to repairs, painting and other home improvements, this is also a good time to assess the many other factors that are involved when you sell your home.
