Selling a Home: Complex, Time-Consuming, Emotional

I manage the complexity, significantly reduce your time investment, provide expert advice and comprehensive information and stay on top of things on your behalf from beginning to end.

The sale of your house involves what for most is one of the biggest life-time financial decisions. It is a process with multiple interdependent steps. You will need to answer many questions including:

 How much is my house worth now?

What should I do to improve its appeal?

What repairs and enhancements should I consider?

How do I best handle prospects and buyers?

What are these contingencies?

How about inspections?

What's the impact of the appraisal?

What should the marketing strategy be?

How important is the internet in today's market?

How can I maximize exposure?

How can I protect myself

Who pays for what?

What are legal requirements and implications?

What forms need to be used and filled out?

How can I protect myself and be in compliance?

and many others...

Multiple parties are involved in the transaction and need to be coordinated including prospective buyers, their agents, attorneys, property inspectors, appraisers, repairmen, mortgage companies, town real estate offices, utilities, etc.  There are multiple forms to be obtained and filled out, including legally mandated disclosures. See the links below for more information on how I add value.

What I do

Since the peaks of early 2007 housing prices have dropped.  The magnitude of the drop is highly variable by town, type of house, price range and condition of the house. Homes continue to be bought and sold, some even above list price and with multiple offers, but that tends to be the exception.  As a seller or potential seller, the drop in market prices will certainly be a concern for you. On average, if you bought your home after 2004 or so and want to sell now, you may have to reconcile yourself with the fact that you may have a loss, perhaps even a significant one.  A loss, and even a less-than-expected gain are certainly unwelcome prospect for any seller.  Consider, however, that you may also be a buyer and thus, while you may hurt a bit as a seller, you will benefit as a buyer by getting a better deal on that transaction. 

Nobody knows how long it will take for real estate prices to fully recover.

If you are a seller or potential seller, know that Spring through Fall are the peak activity months. It is in your own interest to not miss out.  In today's buyer's market it is even more important than ever to make sure your house is in optimal condition, presented for best impact and marketed effectively. So there may be some preparation and lead-time involved in order to get the best results.  ACT NOW to get things started. Contact Me, Call Me at  860-305-8967  or Email me.  I will be happy to engage with you, give you recommendations to position your home for the market, estimate the current market value, show you what other homes are on the market that will compete with yours for buyer's attention. When listing with me I will help you stage your home for best impact.

If you are getting ready to sell or thinking about selling, you have come to the right place, take the next step and contact me.

If you own a home that has been on the market for a while, I can help you revamp your approach.

Pricing Right is always important. What is "right" depends on the fundamentals of the house and how well they show. Thus LOWERING THE PRICE IS NOT ALWAYS THE ONLY OPTION
