It can feel like the details are endless when you’re selling a property. It is our job to provide you the luxury of personalized service, take care of it all and streamline the process for you. From specialized market knowledge to negotiating and closing your transaction and ensuring everything is completed as quickly and efficiently as possible. When you sell your home with the Fagin Willis Group, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing your home looked it’s best, showed it’s best, and got the best price.
Here’s an overview of the steps we’ll be taking along the way:
Communication makes all the difference. You’ll always know what’s going on behind the scenes while your property is listed. We will solicit feedback from each consumer and agent who views your property, passing their comments on to you. We will work together to formulate a price adjustment strategy that sees us through your listing period. You’ll receive regular progress reports, delivered as frequently as you request. Whether you prefer a phone call or an email, that’s what you’ll get.
Prepare your home for a successful sale. More and more sellers today are seeing the value of investing in a pre-inspection on the property they are preparing to list. Whether or not you are confident in the condition of the home, an inspection can either give us professional, third-party validation, or reveal issues you should attend to before listing your property – issues a buyer inspection could surface later, making them part of the final price negotiation. We will evaluate the current state of your property and arrange home staging, if needed or desired. Any repairs or improvements needed to maximize your home’s value and appeal will be identified and scheduled.
Expert guidance helps you make informed decisions. Providing a marketing strategy based on your wants and needs combined with the research we have done and knowledge we have of your area to meet your goals. We will prepare a competitive market analysis and recommend an appropriate list price and probable sales price for your property. We will make recommendations on staging, potential repairs and cleaning your property in order to make your home more attractive to buyers. We can suggest quality professionals including attorneys, handymen, stagers and inspectors.
A comprehensive marketing plan second to none. How your agent markets themselves is a strong indication of how they will market your property. We believe in presenting your property in the very best condition possible and will be right by your side to help as you prepare your home for sale. Staging, professional photography, 3D floor plan and drone tours, full color professionally printed brochures and flyers are just a few examples of the marketing plan we offer all of our clients. We also have a detailed web advertising plan that includes pre-marketing your home extensively on social media. We will market your property to buyers and other agents utilizing all possible and appropriate methods.
Our commitment is to you. Placing your interests above all others, keeping your information strictly confidential and ensuring that all parties to the transaction are informed about any material facts that may affect the transaction are my promises to you. We will receive, deliver and/or monitor all earnest money deposits, documents and final closing statements to you in a timely manner.
Earning and retaining your trust is most important to our team.
Selling your home is a big financial and emotional task, which requires lots of planning. So before you decide to put your home on the market, here are four questions to consider.
What is my home worth? Several factors go into determining your home’s market value. These include the condition of the property, square footage, location, amenities, as well as recent comparable property sales. For a snapshot of your home’s current value, you can enter your address into a free online value estimator tool. Alternatively, you can look at a recent property tax bill to get your home’s tax assessed value, which is a percentage of your home’s fair market value. If you know your state’s assessment rate (which is usually between 80 and 90 percent), you can estimate fair market value by dividing your tax assessed value by that assessment rate.
How can I sell at the highest price possible? There are several simple, low-cost things you can do to boost the value of your home. These include eliminating clutter, washing windows and walls, and installing higher wattage bulbs to create a brighter environment. Larger projects, like adding bedrooms and renovating kitchens and bathrooms, typically yield more substantial increases in sales price. Staging your home, which helps paint a picture for how buyers will use their new space, can also add value.
How long will my home be on the market? The time your home spends on the market depends on several factors, including location, how competitively your home is priced, and how aggressively your home is marketed. Statistics show that if a home is properly priced, an offer should come in within the first 12 showings. If you want to speed up the sales process, don’t underestimate the value of staging. Research shows that well-staged homes can sell up to 32 percent faster than homes that aren’t staged.
How can an agent help? A real estate agent can help with all aspects of the selling process, from pricing to marketing to handling the intricacies of closing. An agent will negotiate on your behalf to secure the best price – and quickest sale – possible. Looking for an agent who can help guide you through the selling process? Feel free to contact us!
