THINKING ABOUT SELLING?
There's always a lot of 'inventory' for sale in our area, but you have a good fighting chance to accomplish your goal with the the right agent, the right marketing, and the right attitude. Some areas sell quickly, other not so fast. Land sales are still tough, but there are Buyers out there. Your TLC Agent is a true professional with the expertise and resources to help you get or go where you want to be. When you are ready to "Change Your View," TLC is ready for you!
Step 2. Take Action Steps
a) Prepare it carefully. Inside and out. Does the lot need clearing or improving? Does your exterior need painting/pressure washing? Deck need sealing? Can you improve landscaping? Is all litter kept clear on your road and access road? Curb appeal can make the difference between someone pulling in or pulling away. How about inside? Declutter. Put boxes and furniture in storage- CREATE SPACE. Buyers don't need to admire your style and decor – they want to envision themselves in there. On the other hand- a vacant home may sell quicker with a few representative pieces of furniture to give dimension to a room. I can help you pin down what needs to be done.
b) Price it right, for right now. Your strongest window of market excitement for residential is the first 60 days on the market. If you are overpriced- you will lose that edge. Period. Your initial market position (your asking price) should be competitive. Price it too high to "test the market" or "wait until the market improves," and expect low-ball offers--if any. Also, realize that a price adjustment within the 60-90 day period is a great way to put your property back in the spotlight.
c) Hire an Agressive Marketer. I will do my best to 'turn up the volume' in as many ways as creatively possible. I have proven marketing strategies in place targeted to provide Your Unique Property with the Best Exposure.

Step 3. Pick the right REALTOR®. (Me for example.)
Probably the 3 best tips I can give you at this stage, while you're considering ANY agent: 1) DO NOT pick an agent based solely on whoever suggests the highest price for your property. No agent can manipulate the market and all agent suggestions are negotiable provided they are reasonably based on market facts; 2) DO NOT pick an agent based on the lowest commission fee- you typicall get what you pay for; 3) DO pick an agent that has an aggressive marketing plan that matches your property.
Selling your home is a large undertaking. Making the smart move of choosing a REALTOR® is your first best step to ensuring that your investment in your home pays off.
