How do you choose the right Realtor?
First and foremost, you want to work with someone you trust. Will your agent be your partner, protecting your best interests at all times?
Your agent should listen and understand what is important to you.
Your Realtor® should have a keen sense of the local market, and current trends in marketing and financing.
Most agents will do a free home evaluation. This is a preliminary look at what your home’s market value might be based on recent sales of similarly sized homes. This report is a ‘prelimiary’ look at the potential market value of your home.
I will then prepare a Full Competitive Market Analysis and a Marketing Plan. At this meeting, I will walk through your home point out unique features of your home, as well as recommend updates and repairs that will improve your home’s ultimate market value. We will also talk about your specific goals and timing.
It’s never to soon to begin talking with your Realtor®, even if you are 6 months or more away from placing your home on the market. Contact me to get in touch. I look forward to helping you to start planning today! 408-829-8061.
