Preparations and Expectations
This step begins even prior to our first in-person consultation, as it involves considerable research to determine legal history of your property, current market conditions, recent real estate activity in your neighborhood — all of which will affect the marketability of your home and its current market value. At this stage we will give you expert guidance on what you can do to boost the appeal and value of your home, and serve as a resource for reputable contractors you may need — painters, home stagers, repairmen, just to name a few. When your home is ready for the eyes of the world, a professional photographer will take a stunning set of high-resolution images; a licensed appraiser will measure the precise square footage of your home; floor plans will be drawn… all in the lead-up to “going live!” We will present you with a professional analysis of comparable recent home sales and discuss pricing strategies, all aimed at achieving your goals in terms of selling price and speed with which you wish, or need, to sell. We will answer all your questions, serve as your go-to person for any and all concerns now and until the last piece of paperwork is signed at closing, and we will always share our best advice, opinion, and knowledge, so as to set your expectations realistically.
