Dream Home Detroit - Selling
- How We Sell Homes -
Our Customized Home Marketing System is the exact plan we use to give your home the best exposure possible. Go ahead and take a look. We love when our clients are as informed as possible about what is working in our current marketplace. In addition to the Customized Home Marketing System we use a collaborative process that highlights the distinctiveness of your home and realize it's not about making ourselves standout, but rather making your HOME stand out and rise above a buyer's other options.
There are three major factors to consider when selling your home: timing, price and risk.
Timing - how quickly do you need the cash from the sale of your home?
Price - what price is your home currently demanding in our local market?
Risk - do you need to sell your home before you can buy another? (has a strong correlation to the strength of your negotiating position)
Depending on your situation, an error in one of these three steps could cost you thousands long term. It's important to have the best possible information at your disposal. Using an agent on our team to represent you will allow you to get answers and avoid common pitfalls when selling your home. If you're serious about selling contact us for a seller strategy meeting and we can assess your situation. Here are a few common misconceptions:
- You get more for your home if you "pad" the price with bargaining room.
- Waiting for offers will get you a higher offer.
- EVERY buyer likes to bargain or negotiate the price.
- Receiving an offer close or at list price within the first couple weeks means the house was under priced.
Timing is important and knowing the local market is key. As full time agents, we study trends - see our Oakland County Trends page - and analyze information. We understand what your home will sell for in our market and how quickly you can expect your cash. Need an estimate on net with prorated property tax information? No problem, we can help. With us you'll know how much cash you're walking away with well before you sit at the closing table.
Pricing your home correctly is crucial to maximizing the highest selling price possible. As area experts, we can help determine what direction the market is trending, so you can make the right choices when it comes to selling your home to get the highest price possible! The goal is to get as many people as possible to tour and make offers on your home, the first two weeks being crucial. More buyers means more demand which allows your home to sell for top dollar. There’s a current pool of buyers waiting for new listings to hit the market, which is why accurate pricing and preparing your home properly is crucial. Ask us about our Marketability Checklist. It's a great tool to help you avoid pitfalls when preparing your home for the market.
Risk is an important factor when selling your home that is often overlooked, especially if you first need to sell your home before you make the move into your next home. Which offer should you take? The higher priced risky one or the lower priced safe one? How do you prove someone is qualified to buy your home? No worries, we can help with all of that.
