Does the idea of selling your home and buying another home scare…Read More
Thinking of Selling?
The real estate we own may be the largest investment most of us will ever make. As such, the responsibility of pricing, marketing, managing the process, and the actual sale should be managed by an experienced professional to ensure you get the highest dollar that the current market provides. A few items of importance include:
Select an experienced agent with a track record of listing homes.
A Listing Agent should be focused on listing and marketing your home, not running around town looking at real estate for other customers.
Price your home to SELL
Listing your home does not necessarily equate to selling your home. Pricing your home properly when first listed gives you a better chance of netting the highest possible dollar. Homes that sit on the market for extended periods often end up selling for less, plus, carrying costs are often hidden expenses, but they too have a direct impact on your bottom line.
Remember that cheaper commissions may be like fool's gold.
Discount brokerages may offer lower commissions, but your focus should be on the bottom line at closing. Advertising, experience, knowledge, and negotiation skills often mean cash in YOUR pocket!
Consider a home inspection
Surprises are good for birthdays, but not when selling your home and thousands of dollars are at stake. Know the issues your home may have BEFORE the buyer's inspector finds them.
Ensure your home is presentable
Clean, make minor repairs, declutter, and stage your home to ensure it looks its best. Presentation is everything. Avoid major renovations.
List your home and be flexible
Buyers may need to view homes on weekends and evenings. Keeping your home in "Tip Top" shape can be difficult. Be prepared for numerous showings, sometimes back-to back, if your home is priced competitively.
Negotiate offers and work towards closing
Your Realtor® will advise of your options and assist with management. This period can be stressful as you may be moving as well, so a good Realtor® will help mitigate this stress.
Considering going "For Sale By Owner"?
It could cost you.. be sure to know the facts.

what our customers say!
Sold our home in less than 3 weeks and above asking price. Will be using him again to sell our other home in the very near future. You wont be disappointed in selecting Chuck and his team, I recommend you start packing once you bring him on board.
Kyla helped me find my perfect home. She was helpful, knowledgeable, and most importantly, she listened to my wants and needs! We searched until we found my perfect home. She stayed on top of the inspections and mortgage broker requirements until closing day. I could not have chosen a better partner for my home search. Thank you, Kyla! You are a rock star and I could not be happier.
Chuck is just the best! So friendly, helpful and quite the funny guy 🙂 we loved him ?? and after all of our shenanigans, house to house to house to house……he was so patient and would even tell us if he thought we were in over our head. Sometimes we saw “a little fix here and there” but chuck saw a headache! He’s not in it for a quick sale! That’s why, we’re going to buy another house! We purchased our house a little over a year ago but we’re ready to move on….I’ll be call you soon Chuck!

Words can never express how much I enjoyed and loved working with Kyla. For me, I never wanted to work with a realtor due to fears of them scamming me and just “talking a good game”. Kyla eased that fear the very first time we met. She was personable and she answered questions in a way that made you actually answer your own questions in order for you to be the sole driver of the process while she copiloted and snatched the wheel when need be. Lol. She was available when needed most and very understanding when questions came up in the wee hours of the night. Would I recommend her, ABSOLUTELY!! Kyla thank you again for all that you’ve done for my family and I! YOU ROCK!
Kyla was excellent. She was very kind & understanding. The closing on my home was a mess! Everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. Kayla sat with me the entire day at the closing office waiting for a wire transfer. She made a difficult day much easier for me. The purchase of my new home was swift & easy bc of her. She also made sure that I won the bid on my new home with a secret she uses, as there were 5 offers!! I would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling.
Chuck was everything you could ask for in a realtor – smart, responsive, thorough and genuinely kind and honest. After meeting with other realtors, we were so happy we went with Chuck. He really listened to us, gave us sage advice and made the selling process a breeze. Doesn’t get better than that!
