Selling Your Home with Leah
You are in a winning position at the moment. It's still a sellers market in the Greater Bay Area! For most families, their home is their largest financial asset, and deciding to sell it is a big decision that involves a lot of preparation and work. When you're ready to sell it's important to have an experienced Realtor handle the details involved in the successful sale of a home to net top dollar.
As an experienced professional who has helped many homeowners sell their investments, I know how to handle every aspect of the listing and sales process. We start by signing an agreement to address the length of the contract and the commission you're comfortable with for both the listing and selling side. Then we clean up the house inside and out prior to putting the house into the regional multiple listing service (MLS). We work together with vendors to stay on budget for any touch-ups or repairs—I even have a commercial van for those last minute dump runs or drop-offs to the local donation centers. Then, I strategically market and showcase your home to buyers, other brokers, and my network. Once you have offers I ensure all documentation is explained and signed. Then, we monitor the buyers' contingency removal dates; if they have not removed all contingencies then we still search for back-up offers to stay on track.
The above are not all the steps to get your home sold, but they are a good start and once we're working together I'll explain everything to you in detail for your particular circumstances both verbally and in writing so you are clear on the processes and timelines. I will also do all I can to ensure you have the best opportunities to gain the highest price for your home. For example, in this current market homes are suggested to be vacant and cleaned up or cleared out of the excessive personal property in and around the home, and I can help with that. The yard needs to be tidy and the front yard curb appeal is a must. Prior to marketing, home inspections should be completed and I'll take care of those so you can be informed and so that if you choose to make repairs to net a higher value those can be done prior to buyers submitting an offer. I have a large vendor list, an excellent eye for what appeals to buyers, and good people to help us work around a tight budget. Also, professional photos are a must in order to gain top dollar and I will make sure that happens; remember, those photos are being marketed to local and international buyers as the first showing of your property so we want to give a great first impression of your property and grab buyers' attention.
Allowing your investment the best chance to gain its highest price potential while giving you comprehensive, high-quality listing service are my top priorities. So when you decide to sell your home, contact me and let's start the conversation or process. Our successful partnership and your EPIC experience await!
