Listing your home for sale is a big deal. At times, it can be overwhelming and stressful, but not if you have the right Realtor. In fact, your realtor should be someone who knows the local market inside and out, is driven to sell your house for the optimal price, and is organized and has a plan of action.
If you are looking to sell your home and you live in Center City, I will be the right fit for you. I am great at negotiating, I develop the best sales plan for your needs, and am from and live in Center City, so I know the market. But before we get started, you need to know more about me.
Here are six questions you should ask me, before I begin the process of selling your property.
1. Why should I select you over a team?
While you may be used to the idea of real estate teams, having one person dedicated to selling your home is beneficial because you will receive personalized attention. It’s all about quality over quantity.
2. Do you specialize in this neighborhood?
I cannot stress this enough; you should choose a realtor who is familiar with your home’s neighborhood. You need to make sure the person you are working with knows the area, upcoming developments, and the lifestyle. That is why I chose to sell in Center City because I live here. I am not only selling your property, but I am also selling a lifestyle.
3. How do you decide a listing price?
The money conversation is sometimes a tough one, but it is essential that you understand how a listing price is decided. Because I know the Philadelphia market so well, I use that knowledge to work with you and guide you to the right price for your listing.
4. What is your sales plan?
A sales plan is different for every listing. You need to make sure that I will market your property the best way possible. That is why I like to customize my sales plan based on the needs of my clients and the property.
5. How should I get my house ready?
Chances are, your home will need some repairs and improvements before it is listed. For me, I may suggest staging services and professional photography to help make your listing stand out from the rest. I may even have some easy, budget-friendly ways to make repairs.
6. How will we communicate?
Whether you prefer email updates or periodic phone calls, it is important to set expectations about communication from the beginning of the process. I like to keep all lines of communication open with my clients and use the method in which they are most comfortable.
Again, these are just a few of the important questions you should ask me before we start working together to sell your home, but it does not have to stop there. Ask me anything, because besides selling your house, my goal is to make you comfortable and stress-free during the process.
