    Q: What Does the Home Valuation Process Look Like for Sellers?

    Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, our real estate market is thriving. What does the home valuation process look like for sellers, though? Here’s a quick rundown of how I’m working with homeowners. 

    First, I ask the homeowner a series of questions about their house and then formulate a detailed report that includes information from the city, a Zillow valuation, a few really good neighborhood comps, and other data. 


    After I look at the home, I’ll then include my estimation in the report. I’ve sold several homes this year whose final sale price was above the original valuation. These homes also generated multiple offers, and we didn’t have any problems with appraisals either. 


    If you’re thinking of moving in 2020, give me a call. After we talk on the phone, I’ll visit your home in person and tell you what I think it would sell for. Next, we’ll craft a home selling strategy with a specific time frame.

     

    "I’d love the opportunity to show you our marketing program and tell you how we can get your home sold quickly and for top dollar."

    For example, if you were to sell now, we’d schedule your closing five weeks down the road and allow you 30 days afterward to stay in the home and take your time with the move. If you’re looking to sell and then buy, we can schedule your time frame so that you don’t have to move twice. 

    The bottom line is, my team and I have this down to a science. I’ve been in the real estate business for 28 years, and I’m proud to be affiliated with Keller Williams Realty. I’d love the opportunity to show you our marketing program and tell you how we can get your home sold quickly and for top dollar.
