Seller’s FAQs

As you can imagine, we field a lot of questions every day about the often-complex process of buying and selling!  Here are some of our most commonly asked questions.

Is now a good time to sell?

View Market reports

The real estate market is an ebbing and flowing phenomenon, influenced by interest rates and home values. Our agents would be happy to talk with you about your property, its unique characteristics, and when would be the best time or condition under which to sell.

How much is my home worth?

Allow us to prepare a custom market assessment report on your home to give you a realistic, accurate figure based on market trends, comparative sales, and values of property features unique to your home.

What should I do to get my house ready to sell?

We have specially-prepared checklists and strategic recommendations to help you get your home in the best conditions for the highest market sale possible. We are experienced and can help you to focus on the most impactful areas that bring about the biggest impression and most positive financial returns.

Will you have open houses?

Yes, we prefer to hold open houses, when possible. This is a non-threatening way for potential buyers who may not yet be working with a Realtor® to come in to explore your home and consider purchase. The more exposure and marketing of your home, the better.

How will you market my home?

When it comes to selling your house, we employ the most effective marketing techniques available. We will craft attractive listing descriptions on all of the most popular sites, create enticing flyers, utilize our Realtor® networks of clients and colleagues, host open houses and hold Realtor® screening opportunities.

Do I have to be there when people come see my house?

It is actually preferred that you are not present when a buyer comes to look at your house. This allows them to feel the most comfortable in the space and more likely to move towards placing an offer.

Helpful Tips for Sellers:

  • Prepare your home so that is attractive to all buyers
  • Make needed renovations 
  • Depersonalize and declutter your home while staging 
  • Make your home as move-in ready as possible
  • Strategically setting an asking price
  • Effectively market your home through all avenues
  • Offer extras to buyers
  • Show your home at its best
  • Know what your closing costs are as a seller
  • Understand your responsibilities for earnest money, inspections, and attorneys
