Sellers

These short articles provide guidance and answers to Sellers. Selling a Home can be a complicated process that seems daunting. Sellers have questions and realize that having knowledge is power. Today we have information at our fingertips. That information is available simply by asking (or typing) the question. But, do we know what questions we really need to ask? Sellers have unique needs and concerns in the real estate market. Pricing, condition, timing, and staging to mention just a few. These posts are shared in hopes of answering some common questions. The only way to answer all of your questions may be through a conversation however. Hind sight is 20/20. When dealing with the one of the largest transactions of one's lifetime, does your hindsight offer you the foresight to bring comfort?

It's not just the forms, but the trends, the negotiations and tactics. Then there is the marketing to consider. Did you know 95% of all people start their search for homes and property online? You would like to have someone in your corner that knows how to navigate that type of marketing, wouldn't you? Reach out if you have additional questions, concerns or feel you need representation. If you want to discuss your unique situation or have questions about representation, reach out for a free consultation. It is, after all, what I do.
