For many people considering selling a home the first question on their mind is, “What’s my home worth?” Understanding the value of your house in comparison to the rest of your neighborhood is an important first step. There are many reasons to sell and we believe that no matter what the reason for deciding to sell at this point, you deserve to get the highest amount possible for your home.

This is where you decide if you want to use a real estate agent to list and sell your home. Abraham Lincoln once said – “He who represents himself has a fool for a client” There are so many things that go into selling a property. First of all the legalities, the contracts, the paperwork, the timelines, and the people involved. It takes a team of professionals to move through the process and we haven’t even touched on the emotional side of things. Even if you don’t hire us to represent you (boooo), make sure that you get a professional that has made the proper alignments and knows how to deal with title agents, inspectors, appraisers, lenders, and other real estate agents. Choosing a real estate agent that is aware of what is happening in the market and can help during the negotiations will save you both time and money. Choosing one that can comfortably guide you through such an emotional time can be even more important.
We have a list of Scottsdale buyers. You can take advantage of this and maybe get an offer before it even goes on the market in the MLS.
To be fair, we would still recommend putting a house into the MLS. This gives access to many more potential buyers and real estate agents and will then show your house on Zillow, Trulia, and many more real estate sites.
Getting a sign in the yard is often just as crucial. Many times a home sells because a neighbor tells their friend about the house down the street that is going up for sale. Even with the internet offering so many resources for home searches, sometimes buyers drive through neighborhoods they are interested in to find available properties.
Beyond these, there are many other great ways to advertise your home that we can implement and discuss. For starters: creating a video is great, but people have to see it. We have tools to get the video in front of buyers. In addition, we often feature properties on the homepage of this website.
Give us a call to talk to an agent or to get a free home evaluation. We will be happy to chat with you about your options.
