One of the most important elements of marketing your home effectively is setting the price right`. Set the price too high, and you won’t get any offers and your home will take too long to sell. Set it too low and you cheat yourself by not getting your home’s full, fair value. As experts in the Houston and surrounding area real estate market, we evaluate and analyze the market as well as set local area home prices every single day. Your Team Sadler agent will work with you closely to assure that everything possible is utilized and put into place to get the highest price possible, in the time frame you need.
The condition and appearance of your home are also critical factors in getting the best price for your home. A Team Sadler Realtors agent will personally walk through your home with you and advise you of what you can do to properly stage your home most effectively. Some areas are much more important and more likely to pay off than others! Often, home-buyers are motivated by emotional responses as much or more than financial issues. There are usually things that your real estate agent can point out to you that are easy and inexpensive, yet go a long way toward triggering those “must buy – must have” emotions.
As your real estate professionals, we will negotiate furiously on your behalf throughout the entire process to ensure that your best interests are protected. Real estate negotiations and contracts can be intimidating in their complexity. Most people have almost no experience in these negotiations. After all, how often do you buy or sell a new house? We are comfortable and confident in negotiating for our clients, it is part of our job we do it every day. As top real estate professionals, negotiating on behalf of our clients to get best terms and sold at the best price possible is simply part of our job and we love it.
Marketing alone will not get a property sold, the property must be priced right to peek the interest of potential buyers. If it seems your property is not getting the attention you thought it would and you are not receiving any offer, then it would be a good idea to have a conversation with your real estate agent and discuss lowing the sale price or other options that may be available.
REAL ESTATE IS LOCAL – BUT NOW MORE and MORE HOME-BUYERS ARE NOT. OUR MARKETING IS DESIGNED TO CAPTURE THE MOST EXPOSURE FOR YOUR PROPERTY IN THE SHORTEST AMOUNT OF TIME.
