BUYING A CAR CAN BE A HUGE

Please reach out to me with any questions about buying a new home.

Mike Jensen

DON'T GET

In almost every case, the builder agent's fiduciary duty is to the BUILDER. That means that the agent negotiates for the best interest of the builder, not yours. Consider a representative buyers agent to negotiate for you when buying a brand new home.

Please reach out to me with any questions about buying new construction.

Comparitive Market Analysis

One of the most important and often the very FIRST step in the process of selling your home, is the creation of a comparative market analysis.

A comparative analysis gives the home seller and the agent a very good estimate of the value of the home. When you list your home, you are essentially competing against similar listings in your area. If your home is priced competitively and marketed professionally, it will have a better chance of going under contract sooner.

The Comparative Market Analysis compares your home against 3 similar homes that have recently sold. This is the best way to ascertain what “the market will bear” and to create a personalized marketing plan to sell your home as quickly as possible. Please call, text or fill out my contact form to schedule your Comparative Market Analysis today!
