FAQ’s We Get From Sellers
1. What is my home worth?
To determine the right price for your home, it’s essential to conduct a comparative market analysis (CMA). A CMA involves analyzing recent sales of similar properties (comps) in your area to assess their sold prices. Factors like size, location, condition, and amenities are considered when selecting comps. We provide a comprehensive CMA to our Sellers to help us determine a competitive and realistic value.
2. Should I make any repairs or renovations before listing?
In most cases there are some minor repairs and or renovations that can be done prior to putting your home on the market to ensure it is presented at its full potential. However, you want to be mindful of the potential return on investment (ROI) for any repairs or renovations you plan to undertake. Focus on improvements that are likely to yield a positive ROI and enhance the market value of your home.
3. Is staging important?
On average, a staged home sells 88% faster—and for 20% more money—than a home that’s left as is. The reason it works, of course, is it gives buyers a “stage” onto which they can play out their home-owning fantasies and envision themselves living in your home. “Choose neutral paint colors and remove any family photos,” says Johnson. Give would-be homeowners a blank canvass that they can mentally fill with their loved ones and themselves.
4. What is the process of selling a home and what should I expect?
The process of selling a home involves preparing the property for sale, hiring a real estate agent, setting a listing price, showcasing the home to potential buyers, negotiating offers, and completing the necessary paperwork to transfer ownership to the buyer.
5. What are the costs associated with selling a home?
The costs associated with selling a home include real estate agent commissions (typically a percentage of the sale price), any repairs or improvements made to the property before selling, marketing and advertising expenses, title and escrow fees, and potential taxes or other fees depending on local regulations.
6. Should I hire a real estate agent or sell my home myself?
Selling a home can be a complex and emotional process, and that’s where a real estate agent can make all the difference. A skilled agent brings expertise, market knowledge, and negotiating power to ensure you get the best price for your property. They handle the paperwork, marketing, and showings, saving you time and stress. With their guidance and experience, you can confidently navigate the selling journey, knowing you have a trusted partner to help you achieve your goals and secure a successful sale.
