You Won't Owe A Dime For Our Home Selling Services
That's right... you won't pay us until you close on your home. That's when you sign papers at the attorney's office and hand the keys to the new owner.
- If we don't sell your home as agreed in writing, you won't owe us a dime. This also means that we take on all the marketing financial risk for you. (Is that a smile on your face?)
Want To Boost Your Asking Price?
Replacing worn out carpet, cleaning dirty carpet and fresh paint as needed, are always good ideas. Choose neutral colors even if that may not be your taste. You might love a Southwest motif, but other potential buyers might flinch, and that's the last thing that you want do do.
Do NOT Over Do Improvements
I don't know how many times people call me to sell their home AFTER they've spent THOUSANDS of dollars updating and/or remodeling rooms in their home.
Far too many times I have informed these well-intended people that they probably won't gain that money back and sometimes they end up losing money.
That's why it's vital to ask your real estate agent what you should fix, remodel, update, etc. and what you should ignore BEFORE your house goes on the market.
PLEASE Eliminate Clutter
Reducing all clutter around your house will make it much easier for potential home buyers to visualize themself living in your house for sale. PLUS packing up items before your house goes on the market will help you reduce your levels of stress, because this process helps get part of your packing done early. It's also an opportunity to weed out items that you no longer need.
It's Not Personal
When your house is for sale, you need to think like a business person, not a home owner.
That means having a thick skin when prospective buyers are judging the pros and cons of your property. Of course you have lots of memories and dreams tied up in your home, which creates an emotional connection. With this in mind, you must put all that aside and distance yourself before, during and after the sale.
Don't feel badly if potential buyers complain about your choice of draperies or talk about digging up your rose bushes. Just keep moving forward to achieve your goal - get the house sold.
It's A Psychological Proven Fact
Potential home buyers generally don't feel at ease walking through a home with the homeowner and/or listing agent present. One big reason of many, they don't feel free to talk openly.
We've all had the experience of shopping and a salesperson follows you around or sticks close-by. Does that behavior make you feel comfortable?
That's why is vital to get the entire family AND pets out the door before a showing is scheduled. Buyers need to be able to privately imagine themselves in your home, and without interruption.
