Passionate About Service
Even if a simple sign in your yard did produce a buyer knocking on your door, how will you handle the following questions:
"How does your home compare to others like it in Edmonton, St. Albert or even this neighbourhood?"
"How did you determine the fair market value of this property?"
"What about financing? Can you help?"
"If I make an offer, who will draw up the paperwork & how?"
"What's your bottom line, I don't have all day to do this?"
"Why aren't you using a real estate agent? Is there something wrong with the property?"
"Since you aren't using a real estate agent, we can take their fee right off the top, right?"
Selling your home is one of the most important financial transactions you will make in your life. Don't take risks. Selling your home is nothing like selling a car. Every home is different, and every home buyer wants to offer you as little as possible. How do you determine the real market value?
Almost all homes are sold using a REALTOR®. As a top producing & full time real estate professional, it is my job to help you negotiate with all those buyers who want something for nothing. Not to mention preparing your home for sale, marketing it locally in Edmonton & area and even nationally (people moving into the area) and guiding you through the complex paperwork and pitfalls of conditions and closing. Make sure you are really ready to handle all of that before pounding that sign into your front yard. Errors can be extremely costly.
Remember: Buyers want to offer you as close to nothing as possible! While that "For Sale By Owner" sign from that internet marketing company might sound like a good idea, it usually means a different thing to buyers: "Try to steal this one."
If you must sell your own home, at least let me give you a sense of its true market value. Tell me a bit about your home, and I'll do a quick Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) and let you know what I feel it is worth. I'll also describe, as an experienced Edmonton RE/MAX REALTOR®, how I would market your property. This is free, with no strings attached. If you want to call me, my info is on my contact page.
The only thing more expensive than hiring a professional, is hiring an amateur.
