Tips and Advice

1. Do your homework before you set your price – analyze the sales in your area;

While there are many factors that determine a property’s value, comparing recent sales of similar homes is still the most reliable way to set your price. Consider the following when weighing the amenities against the other homes that have sold;

  • Compare your home to others that have sold in the neighborhood
  • Consider the gross square footage and room count (number of bedrooms, bathrooms. Etc.)
  • Location is a factor. Are you near an unsightly power lines or adverse traffic, or do you have a superior view or more private surroundings like a canyon or park adjacent to your home

If you would like professional help, contact an agent from our database to inspect and provide a comparative market analysis, they would be happy to give you a professional opinion of the value of your property. (find an agent)

2. "Curb Appeal" – preparing you home for sale;

It is important to put your home in the best conditions possible before listing the property for sale. Put yourself in the buyer’s shoes. What attracted you to the property when you purchased it ? Is the property in good shape or does it need cosmetic repairs? Here are a few things that you can do to improve the "curb appeal" of your property.

3. Home Inspection

When selling your property, you are required to make a full disclosure of its condition, including the roofing, plumbing, electrical, and general repair. In some cases, a property inspection by a professional will help strengthen your negotiating position and speed up the closing as it assures the parties of the true condition of the property.
