Know Why You are Selling

If you know exactly why you are selling then it is easier for you to follow the right plan of action for getting what you want.

If you are a seller who needs to close a sale as quickly as possible, then you should know that getting the highest price possible is not one of your priorities. It does not mean that you won’t or cannot get the highest price, but it means that the price is not the deciding factor. A buyer who can give you a quick closing time will appeal much more to you than a buyer who can offer you more money but the negotiation and closing time drag on.

It’s always good to know how low you will go in terms of selling price. This will help to eliminate some of the offers that you find simply offensive or ridiculous. Even though you should consider all offers seriously and take into consideration the terms of each offer, sometimes, if you know the bottom line and are strict about it, you can save yourself time.

Once you know what your limits and reasons are, discuss them with your agent so that they can help you set your goals realistically. If you decide to list your home on your own, make sure you do research on the current market, and you get the proper advice you need in terms of legal issues, etc. The key is to be realistic and to know what your goals are so they can be met.

Testimonials Page

When we sold our home last summer, we were referred to Greg Drake at Realty Professionals. Greg and his staff were so knowledgeable, professional and unbelievably helpful! The stager, that Greg hired, came into our home and made several recommendations and changes to allow our home show beautifully! Our home went on the market and we had 16 showings in the first day alone! At the close of business that very day, we had 11 offers that were either at or above asking price! My husband and I could not have been happier! However, there were several things that came up during the inspection but we did not have to stress about researching companies and getting bids and meeting deadlines. Greg did it all! He had an entire team of trusted, reasonably priced contractors who were able to take care of all our problems that same week! We could not have been more please with the honesty, professionalism and hard work that Realty Professionals provided for us! I cannot imagine having to sell another house without them! I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking to sell or buy! Michelle S.
