Don’t sit around waiting for a deal and other great advice from successful home sellers
The Ocotillo real estate market in Arizona and all the things involved in selling a home can seem complicated, and it can be very hard to know what advice to take. While there’s plenty of great advice to go around from many knowledgeable sources, here are some of the best tips from home sellers who have made a successful sale. Don’t forget to check my website for the Chandler homes market update. This site is updated every Monday and is very informative and easy to read.
Research Your Local Agents
When considering an agent that will meet your home-selling needs, it can be tempting to go with someone familiar or recommended through a friend. Although it’s important to do your research and find an agent who has a number of sales in your area or city. Create a list of agents you’re impressed by and take note of their sales and agent fees, and keep in mind that you may want to lean towards an agent who has expertise in your neighborhood. I encourage my sellers to interview other agents; because selling a home is a process and we need to have the right chemistry to make this a successful sale. I have been an Ocotillo Realtor since 2001 and have a resume that begins with a BS in Finance, VP of Banking at Bank America and into real estate sales in 2001. Very few Chandler Realtors can boast such a background.
Get A Second Opinion On Price
Before you have an agent appraise the value of your home, it’s worthwhile doing some research on your end to determine the approximate value of your property. Once you’ve arrived at a figure, bring in the agents you’ve selected to appraise the value of your property. If one price is significantly higher than the other, it may be a red flag that an agent is trying to win over your business, regardless of whether the sale price is reasonable. In this case, you will want to choose the agent that provides the most appropriate appraisal.
Be House Ready To Sell
Having potential buyers view your home will certainly make the idea of selling it real, so make sure that it is ready for viewing at any time. If a potential buyer cannot view your property or has to work around your schedule constantly to arrange viewings, there’s a pretty good chance that you may lose out on some good home offers. Instead of missing out, provide a set of keys to your real estate agent so they can show people around your home when you’re not around. This should automatically increase the likelihood of an offer on your home.
Heading into the real estate market can be a matter of trepidation if you’re not sure what to do, but by researching your agents and being prepared you’ll increase your chances of success. If you’re almost ready to put your home on the market, Chandler homes for sale have a relatively short time on market. Chandler has many upscale communities, shopping, and employment growth, without the prices of Scottsdale. Please call me if you would like to interview an Ocotillo Realtor.
