Questions You May Have:
What’s my home worth?
How much will it cost to sell my home?
You will receive a complete estimate of all the legal costs associated with selling your home (attorney fees, title fees, taxes, commissions, etc.) during our initial meeting. Costs can vary with the size of the home and other factors. It's very important htat you get this information before signing a listing contract.
Watch Out! Most companies charge junk fees (transaction fees or other fees) that can range from $300 to $800 dollars
What do I need to do to get it ready for the market?
What about the home inspection?
After an offer is made on your house, the buyer will conduct an inspection within 10 days. Items of concern will be presented by the buyer in a reapir request. Although you are not obligated to do any repairs, you may not be able to sell your house (except at a steep discount) unless they are fixed. We will attend the inspection, negotiate repairs with the buyers agent, and co-ordinate getting the repairs completed.
How will you market my home?
This is very important. Ask any agent you interview for examples of previous homes they have sold. Look up those homes on zillow.com or Realtor.com. Pay close attention to the description of the property. Does it make you want to see it? Pay very close attention to the photos of the property. Does the house look clean and bright? Is it well photographed? 90% of buyers see the home online first. If the house doesn't look good online you will have fewer people considering your house. If the pictures don't look great, you should consider a differnet agent.
Should I rent my home out instead?
In some cases you should consider renting. For more information, please see our section on Property management
