I Look Forward to Helping You Sell Your Door County Property
I am really looking forward to the opportunity to help you sell your Door County property—whether that’s a home, a condo, or a piece of land.
You may be looking forward to the process even more than I because you have plans—plans for a bigger place, a smaller place, or perhaps moving on to someplace else. You may be anxious to get it on the market and see buyers come through, know their reactions, and of course get an offer.
As fun and exciting the process of getting your property ready for market is, it can also be at times stressful and aggravating.
I’ve seen about everything, which is why I created this guide.
Time, Effort, Money and Heartache
I will do everything possible to be sure that things go as smoothly as possible.
Often times things that become stressful or aggravating can be avoided, or maybe handled in a better way, as long as we know what to expect ahead of time.
This guide cannot possibly get into every little detail about the preparation, marketing, and sale process, so I’ll be taking care of a lot of details behind the scenes and you won’t need to concern yourself with them.
My guide does get into some things you should know about, which will save you time, effort, money, and heartache.
My Mission…Your Goal
As a Realtor, sometimes I am representing the seller and sometimes the buyer in a transaction.
My “mission” will be different for both type of client—the seller and the buyer.
When I represent you, the seller, my mission is pretty simple and straightforward:
To help you sell your house for the highest amount the market will bear in as short a time as possible!
I cannot and will not promise “fast” or “quick”. How long any property takes to sell depends on many factors (most of which I will address in this guide). Fast or quick to one person may be different for another. A fast market in one town might never occur in another. I can assure you though that I will give you the advice and help to get your property sold as quickly as possible.
I cannot predict exactly how much the market will bear—pay for your property—my market analysis will give us an indicator. I can assure you that I will help you get as much as the market will bear.
How fast your property sells, how much the market will pay, depends a lot on you too. Getting the best results possible—the most money in the shortest amount of time—happens when clients make the best choices throughout the process. In this guide we will talk about some things that will help you make those good choices.
Right Price Analysis
Right price analysis, comparative market analysis (CMA), we all have a different name for it, but what we do is to determine an accurate market value for your property.
I will do research and provide you with a right price analysis, and that will help us determine a range in which your property should sell for.
In the analysis, I will look at properties similar to yours which have:
Are currently under contract
Are currently active on the market
This will also help us determine an appropriate price to list your house for against the current competition and considering the current market activity.
My advice will be based on an objective perspective as to how much you should list your property for. While I hope you will take my advice, ultimately the decision on what price you list your property at will be yours.
As much research as I do, as much strategizing as we do, it is the buyers in the market who will ultimately determine the value of your property—how much it will sell for. Like anything, your property is only worth what a willing, ready, and able buyer will pay. What the buyer will pay should be pretty much in line with the right price analysis, provided there are no major changes in the market and that you make good decisions from the start of the process.
I find a lot of property owners want to overprice their listing when they first hit the market because:
- They think they need to have “wiggle room” to be able to negotiate to the price they want to get.
- They simply hope that someone will pay more than the market data indicates.
- The price they choose to list at is based upon what they “need to get” in order to sell their house.
- They add every dollar of improvements they have made to the house over the years onto the data-driven value.
When an owner over-prices, for any of these reasons, they usually lose the market’s interest by being out of line with the market. This causes their home to sit there, accrue days on market, and cause buyer to wonder, “What’s wrong with the house?”
So, before we even go over the market analysis, my best advice is to listen to the data and price your home accordingly. That’ll end up saving you a lot of time, money, and aggravation.
