Buying or selling your home can and should be a happy and exciting time in your life, filled with the confidence that you have made the right decision and that you are in good hands.
Accurately pricing a property, whether you are selling or buying, can make the difference of thousands of dollars in savings to you. "Knowledge is power." If your home is priced too high, it can stagnate and you may actually end up selling it for less than if it were accurately priced from day one. If you are buying, it is important to be fully aware of the current market value of similar nearby homes before submitting an offer. Reviewing all of the facts with your Realtor® arms you with the accuracy and assurances you desire in order to maximize your dollars.
Today’s Real Estate Broker has access to a wealth of information to assist you in the purchase or sale of your property. We can now easily provide information on listings of comparable properties, the sales history of a property, detailed tax information, plat maps and other public records, and even utilities consumption. You may take advantage of select articles and studies on everything from preparing your home for sale, to manning yourself with a final punch list before taking possession of a newly constructed home. Technological advances now offer unique and freeing alternatives to research and documentation.
Stringent educational licensing requirements, ethics committees who impose hefty fines for violations, and continuing education have greatly changed and improved the important role and focus of today’s real estate professional. The internet now offers consumers the opportunity to do a lot of the research on their own, but there is no better way to insure a smooth and successful transaction than to work with a trained real estate professional who can help you save precious time, money and heartache. It’s a very good day when I can post that SOLD sign in your front yard, or when you happily accept the keys to the next leg of life’s journey.
“It’s good to be home.”
