Selling Your Home

Selling Your Home


How much is my house worth? Why can’t I get more? What improvements do I need to make to ensure it sells? How quickly can I sell? These are the questions that keep sellers up at night.
You need answers as well as help dealing with the many tradeoffs you face in today’s market: selling price, time to sale, need for improvements prior to the sale and need to move by a certain date. These factors are affected by local market trends, competition for properties, and most of all access to buyers—and that’s where your agent comes in.


Eighty-eight percent of sellers used an agent in the process of their sale in a survey conducted in 2014.*

Why? Because this trade-off process can be complicated and anxiety producing. An experienced professional agent can help you see the difference between good timing and bad timing, know when to accept an offer and when to hold out for more, and feel good about the final decision you make rather than filled with remorse.
