TIPS FOR SELLING YOUR HOME
Selling your home can be an overwhelming and scary prospect. There are so many factors involved in the process, from knowing how much to ask to successfully navigating the sea of paperwork, and it is important that each step be executed properly to make a successful sale. Establishing a relationship with a professional realtor is the first order of business, as there are elements and nuances involved that only a trained professional can understand and execute.
GET THE PROFESSIONALS ON BOARD
A licensed real estate broker can not only alert you to hidden problems, give you tips on how to show your home in the best light but, can also ensure that you get the highest price possible. With extensive knowledge of the North Idaho real estate market, Troy and his team will be able to walk you through every step of the way, from opening your door to closing the deal. Their local connections with mortgage and escrow brokers, familiarity with the current market, attention to detail, marketing skills and history of success will help make selling your house a pleasant and successful experience.
With a top-producing realtor like Troy, and his team, by your side you are guaranteed a smooth, worry-free transition. We’ll do all the heavy lifting so all you have to do is pack!
HOW TO PRICE YOUR HOME
One of the toughest parts about selling your home is deciding how much to ask, which is hard to do if you aren’t familiar with the current market trends and your target buyer. If you price it too high you may drive down potential buyers and if you price it too low, you could be cheating yourself out of thousands of dollars. Think of Troy and his team like your “Goldilocks” of pricing, who will help you get it “just right.”
We will come look at your home for a free evaluation and tell you what you can do to get the best price possible. Together, we will plan a marketing strategy with MLS listings, extensive property photos, on line and on our website, and identifying the specific “target buyer” for your home. Because we have such intimate knowledge of each community and their market, we have the inside scoop on what is selling in your area and for how much. With our list of personal contacts and our networking skills, we can find the buyer who is “just right” for your home.
CHECK OUT THE COMPETITION
One of the most important factors in determining the right price to sell your home is looking at the “comps,” or the Comparative Market Analysis (CMA), in your area. Troy and his team have the tools to prepare a CMA customized for you. The CMA will analyze the price of comparable homes currently for sale and those recently sold in your neighborhood. In addition, we can decide if you need an independent appraisal and analyze prior year sales trends.
SIGN, SEAL, DELIVER
Getting through all the paperwork and financial hurdles can be the most stressful part of selling your home. But, have no fear, Troy and the team is here! We will guide you through the negotiations, offers, and counter-offers, connect you with an escrow officer, order the title search, prepare all the required documents and arrange the closing and be there with you when you sign on the dotted lines. And by now, if you are looking to relocate in the area, we have already begun the search to find your new home and since we know your tastes and criteria we could be on the other side of the closing table in no time!
