Time to Sell
We all know someone in real estate. When it comes to selling YOUR home, are they the right person for the job? Selling a house can be stressful – making the decision, preparing the house for sale, keeping it clean, waiting for a buyer, dealing with offers and advancing to the closing table – all of these steps can involve discomfort. This is a huge financial transaction with many emotional aspects. You can get it done! And, it may be even easier than you anticipated.
Price Your Home Right
As a seller, one of the biggest problems you will face is determining a listing price for your house. Before a ‘For Sale’ sign is placed in your yard, an asking price needs to be determined for what’s going on in the market right now.
To avoid overpricing, Jolene offers a FREE two-step consultation to conduct and prepare a written Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) reflecting the best side-by-side comparison of sold properties to your house within 12 months (or less). It’s purpose is to show Fair Market Value, based on what other buyers, sellers and mortgage appraisers have determined through past sales. Fair Market Value is determined based on prices of sold properties to identify an effective list price to sell your home given existing market conditions. The CMA reviews property aspects, listed below, in your area rather than solely the list of price of properties now on the market.
Number of Bedrooms/Baths
Style of Home
Type of Home
Interior Property Features
A CMA will help prevent dangers of overpricing but will be beneficial to share with a mortgage appraiser to avoid any appraisal issues that could impact the sale.

What’s My Bottom Line?

Jolene will prepare an Estimate of Proceeds calculating expenses and costs dependent to the transaction to show you the net proceeds when your sale is complete!
