Your most important decision when selling your home is the selection of the person you choose to represent you. The job of your Sales Associate is to support you in selling your home with the best possible terms, and to aid you through the entire process.
We at Lombardi Realty will explain the process of selling a home and familiarize you with the various activities, documents and procedures that you will experience throughout the transaction.
In order to sell your home quickly and with the best possible terms, it’s necessary to prepare your home for the market and develop an effective marketing strategy. This process includes:
- Deciding when to put your home on the market.
- Establishing a strategic price based on recent comparable sales, local market conditions and your motivation to sell.
- Estimating probable net proceeds.
- Advising you on how to make your home more appealing to potential buyers.
That last item is crucial in the current market. If you’re in a seller’s market you may not need to worry about fixing most problems in your house. Buyers are much more open to problematic homes when they are having a tough time finding one in the first place. However, if you’re in a buyer’s market it would be wise to fix as many problems in the house as you’re financially able to. Our background in the construction industry will be an invaluable resource, allowing us to advise you on these matters. Additionally, we have a licensed home inspector on staff.
Once the house is ready to go on the market, we will advertise it through a variety of platforms. Listing it on the Multiple Listing Service is imperative in any marketing plan because it is used as a medium for agents to market homes to buyers’ agents and to the buyers themselves. We will also employ print advertising and utilize the full resources of the Internet to get the word out about your property. We will not only feature it on our website, but will spread the word through social networking sites and through direct e-mail contact with people searching for a home like yours.
We’re ready to get started. Call us when you are.
