Ready to Sell Your Home?

Before selling your home, before you start making repairs or marking dates on your calendar for an open house, it’s smart to prepare a home selling plan.

 

Step 1: Plan and Prepare to Sell

– The longer a home is on the market, the less attractive it is to potential buyers.  The best home selling strategies are to price it right, prepare it for listing, and attract the home buyer who will offer the highest dollar in record time.

Step 2: What is Your Home Worth

– Every owner wants the absolute best price and terms. Several factors will determine how much you can get for your home. The idea is to maximize your price with the best terms during the time your home is being marketed.

– All property has a price and sometimes more than one. There is the price you would like to get, the value the buyer is willing to offer and a middle point which can result in a sale. prices are a product of supply and demand. It is important to be realistic in the pricing.

Step 3: Marketing Your Home

– Marketing is the key to success! Each home is unique and the marketing will be determined at the time of the listing appointment.

– The greater the exposure, the greater chance you have to sell in a reasonable time for the best price.

Step 4: Sell it!

– We will need to carefully review all offers and consider the options to determine whether an offer is acceptable to you. You will have the choice to reject the offer, counter the offer or accept the offer.

– This step typically involves some compromises by both sides.

Step 5 : Closing your Home

– A sales agreement sets the sales price but also starts a series of terms and conditions that must be completed.

Pet Protection

From making sure your pet is properly tagged to checking your smoke detectors regularly, here are the best ways to prepare for a fire emergency.

Buy a pet – rescue alert sticker.

– These stickers are a lifesaver in a fire because they can tell rescue workers what pets live inside your home. Make the sticker visible by placing it near or on your front door. It should include the types of animals inside as well as the name and number of your vet.

Make sure your pet is easily identifiable.

– If your pet bolts during a fire, how will he or she get back to you? If your dog or cat is wearing a collar or tags with up-to-dat identification information – including their name, your name, your address and phone  number- It’s much easier to locate you in the aftermath of an emergency.

Know your vet’s contact info.

– In the event that your pet’s injuries are more severe, it;s smart to keep the phone number and address of a local animal hospital handy. Having help on speed dial could be a matter of life or death for your pet.

Keep leashes and an emergency kit near an exit.

– Place items you might need in an emergency- such as leash or cat carrier- where you can quickly and easily get to them.

Practice routes of escapes.

– Make sure you’ve got an emergency plan – identify points of quick exit in your home – and do a dry run with your pet.

Know where to find your furry BFF.

– A moment’s notice may be all you have in an emergency, so make sure you’re aware of all the places your pets like to hide because you may need to find them and evacuate quickly.

Changing Market!

Sales of Existing Single-Family Homes

California’s housing market softened further in July for the third consecutive month as higher interest rates and rising home prices eroded housing affordability and dampened demand.

In the midst of the peak home-buying season, high home prices and rising interest rates combined to crimp housing affordability, which in turn is subduing home sales. Some of the reluctance by buyer s appears to be driven by fears that the market may be peaking. Additionally, the lack of a federal tax incentive for homeownership could be at play given that much of the weakness is in the lower-priced, first-time buyer segment of the market.

Whether you are buying a home in a desirable buyer’s market or a fast-moving seller, I can help you get financing in order quickly and efficiently.
