All sellers want to get “top dollar” for their properties, right? The question is: how do you do that?
First, price your home right. Overpricing your home is often as bad as underpricing your home. The old “I’ll start high and meet ‘em in the middle” strategy sounds reasonable, and many agents ride that one-trick pony ‘til it drops. The truth is, there is no “one size fits all” strategy. However, having an accurate value of your home is essential.
Second, knowing which repairs to do (or not do) before your home hits the market contributes to your bottom line and the amount of money that ends up in your pocket. Sellers frequently spend too much time and money on unnecessary repairs and improvements that will not add value to the sale. Why spend $5,000 on painting your home when a buyer will pay the same price for your home as-is?
Property value estimates on the large national sites are mostly garbage (yes, we said it). The algorithms they use cannot account for the current condition of the home, upgrades/remodels, micro-neighborhood conditions, etc. Thus, depending on the neighborhood, the values can be wildly off.
Our property valuations are free, tailored to your property, and created in much the same way that appraisers do their appraisals. This is not a computer-generated valuation. It is based on the information you provide, and we will use at least three comparable properties that have sold within the last 90 days. This is a custom and comprehensive valuation.
