Filter Prospects for Pre-approval

Q & A

Why are pre-approvals important for sellers?

When I list a home, I make sure the experience is as efficient and professional as possible. I pre-screen buyer prospects to assure pre-approval. This saves my clients a lot of time & headache as we seek to accept offers only from qualified buyers.

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!
