Selling a house can seem like a daunting task. The truth is, the road from your initial consultation to your final sale may have a few bumps along the way. But your best protection against unwanted surprises is by starting the process by meeting with a dedicated, professional Realtor such as Joseph Crawford.

If you’re simply curious to know what your home might be worth based off the market activity in your area, a complimentary Comparative Market Analysis, or CMA, is a great way to get this initial information. Joseph prepares this for you, with no commitment required on your part, to help show you how the recent market activity in your area could affect the price your home might achieve on the market. This analysis will take into account the active properties as well as the recently sold properties in your area to help guide you towards a range your home could be expected to sell for.

In order to really understand how your home might perform on the market, it is important to meet with a Realtor for your initial seller’s consultation. This meeting is designed to be educational and identify next steps. Again, it requires no commitment on your part! It is important for a Realtor to see your home in your neighborhood to assess several factors such as its size and exterior condition, as well as its style, compared to the comparable properties in your area. Additionally, the interior condition and quality/presence of upgrades will help your Realtor guide you towards a plan to get your home sold!

More importantly, this initial meeting allows your Realtor to determine what your goals are. Your motivation for selling, your timeline, and your desired financial outcome are all important pieces to putting together the beginnings of your Seller’s Roadmap. Just as your Realtor should communicate with you openly and honestly during this information gathering process, it is important for you to do the same!

Once this initial meeting has taken place, Joseph will have a much better understanding of how to guide you towards pricing your home effectively to meet your goals.

As you can see, the beginning of your Seller’s Roadmap focuses heavily on gathering information and fact-finding - on both sides of the Realtor/client relationship. For a complimentary Comparative Market Analysis for your home, fill out this form! Allow Joseph Crawford the opportunity to help layout your roadmap today.
