I offer a free consultation to property owners interested in knowing more about the market, property evaluation to ultimately determine where they stand in comparison to the market. This is free, no gimmicks, no pressure, no sales pitch service I offer.
With the heart of a teacher I set out to inform and educate property owners so that they can make an informed decision. I carry this through my consultation as well when I inform property owners on where they stand.
Property Condition - A walk through of the property is key, we must know the property features and condition. Often I suggest repairs or general maintenance that I see come up on property inspection. Also there are requirements for certain loans on property condition, so identifying these and addressing will help widen the potential buyer pool.
Upgrades & Projects - One of the most common questions I receive is whether an owner should make improvement A or B, both or neither. While any improvement is a good thing I also take in to consideration the owner’s goals. I have been asked to fix the sidewalk or kitchen countertops, fix the toilet or plant new flowers, address the broken gutters or plant a tree. These all may seem easy but again it depends on the property, market and the owner’s goals.
Timing - Yes it is true, real estate sells differently at certain times of the year in comparison to others. Summer tends to be hot with activity while the falls & winter tends to cool, but the reality is markets vary by neighborhood and city. Let’s determine your goals and see what fits best for you.
Competition/Market - Let’s look at the competition, what do other homes have to offer compared to yours. What is their condition? What upgrades are the norm? Let’s make plans to actually view those properties so we can compare with where the market is and plan accordingly.
CMA - I can create a Comparative Market Analysis on your home to determine what the market is doing in your particular area. From this we will know how fast homes are selling, average price per square foot, seller concessions if any and general condition of the properties being sold. This is the key to this consultation because it brings everything together in the market to show you where you stand in comparison.
Numbers - From the CMA you can start formulating your numbers, bottom line, closing costs, selling expenses, etc… so you can narrow down on what type of proceeds you look to walk away with.
Next Move - If you plan on selling your home then you need to go somewhere and I can help with that as well. Let’s look at your goals, what are you looking for and then let’s go see what that market is like. What does it cost? What can you expect? How is that market?
As you can see that is a good amount of information and education I offer you for free. No gimmicks and in a no pressure environment. I offer this because I know people want to know where they stand and be clear on the data they are getting. Too often websites offer this data but it isn’t tailor to you and with out the actual input of a professional. I hope to be that professional for you!
Again I hope this was of value and maybe you picked up a tip or two. My goal is always to be a resource and educate my clients so they can make informed & educated decisions.
