Your Time is Valuable

If you try to sell your home yourself, expect to spend many hours, days and weeks on the selling process, assuming there are no unforeseen problems. If you consider your work, family, and personal commitments, you’ll likely find that your time is better spent in what you do best.

It’s an Important Transaction

Selling (and buying) a home is one of, if not the biggest transactions a person will make in their lifetime. Most people don’t homes more than a few times in their life, so it’s not something they develop expertise in. There are ever-changing laws, ethical practices and practical considerations that you don’t want to learn on your own through trial and error or relying on a book or information off the Internet. It’s just not worth the risk.

We Will Help You in Every Step of the Way

Our goal is to give you a painless, easy and enjoyable home selling experience. Our services include the following:

  1. Consult with you on how to get your home in top-selling condition in order to impress prospective buyers as soon as your house is on the market. 
  2. Give you up-to-date information on what’s happening in the marketplace and provide you with information on competing properties; e.g. list price versus actual SOLD price, financing terms, condition and more. The fair market value of your home is determined by what competing properties are selling for right now. 
  3. Market your home to other real estate agents and the public using research-based marketing strategies. Our online listing syndication puts your property on tens of thousands of real estate related websites where buyers go to search for homes.
  4. Help you objectively evaluate and negotiate every buyer’s offer without compromising your position. An offer is just the beginning of a process of appraisals, inspections and financing – a lot of possible pitfalls. We can help you write a legally binding win-win contract that is more likely to make it through the process. 
  5. Help you close on the sale of your home. The paperwork alone is overwhelming and it is not unusual for questions or unexpected problems to occur during closing (settlement). 
  6. Help you determine what you want in another home and help you start looking for a new home during the selling process.
  7. We are experts in your area and are committed to giving you 100% full service and attention every step of the way.
