Selling Your Home - What choices do I have?
Today you have choices when selling your home.
- iBuyers, that is companies that offer to purchase your home and move you locally (Opendoor, OfferPad, Zillow), they accounted for only 3% of May 2018 home purchases.
- Sell your home the traditional way with a Real Estate Broker (with us). In May 2018 97% of the home purchases in Maricopa County were done in this manner.
- We can purchase your home, see bottom of this page for details.
Please note, if you go with the iBuyers purchasing your home, you will NOT get top dollar for your home (figure 10% to 17% less). If we purchase your home, it will be a fair offer, but chances are it will not be top dollar either. The traditional way of listing and marketing your home in this market is still best for getting you top dollar for your home.
We will do a no obligation valuation (a market analysis) on your home. This is not an appraisers report but it will compare similar homes in your area so that you can get your homes value based on current market conditions. We will need to know some information about your home (improvements, bedrooms, baths, etc.). Contact us to get this quick process started. As the graphic below shows, its the demand (buyers) that determines most of the value.
What have some of my clients said?
“Bill sold our home in record time and was able to get us a great price. We recommend him for anyone that wants to get their home sold!”
Steve Hage | 5133 W Desert Cove Avenue, Phoenix, AZ
"Bill is one of the finest professionals who I have ever met. As an individual who has bought several properties over the years in various states, I truly appreciated his professionalism, knowledge of the region, the real estate market, and all aspects of the process. Most importantly, he is patient, honest, kind, and a person with the highest integrity who focused on making sure I found the perfect house rather than focusing on a quick sale.”
George Kahkedjian | 4902 E Andora Drive, Scottsdale AZ
"We recently decided to sell a condo that we purchased a while ago. When the decision to sell was made there was no question that Bill was the one we wanted to handle the marketing and sale. As expected we got great advice from Bill, and he took care of things like advertising and signage. We’ve had the condo on the market for just five days and have already had two showings. Whether you’re contemplating buying or selling property, we highly recommend you meet with Bill right from the start.”
Tracy Piatt and Sandy Mignacca | 9708 E Via Linda, #1245, Scottsdale, AZ
Price, get it right!
Depending on your homes location, its curb appeal, its features, how you have maintained it, and what you have upgraded, will help determine its value to buyers.
Now comes the tricky part, if you price it way too high you will not get quality "ready, willing, and able" buyers and it will add days on market which could turn of prospective buyers. It you price it too low you risk leaving money on the table, and if its a luxury home, you will risk killing its “luxury appeal.”
It does no good to put a home up for sale if nobody sees it! That is where marketing comes in.
Most homes are found via the internet these days, so images and or videos are your first impression, make them pop! Clean up the clutter first however, buyers don't want to see it! Consider video, it usually gets more views!
Keep that home clutter free and looking like a model home, buyers cannot see past the clutter most of the time.
Social media marketing is important as well these days. Get it out there!
Timing is important, is this a hot market sellers market or are the buyers in control? Are there new homes being built that might compete with your home, what is the availability of mortgages and the interest rate? These are all items to consider in the timing area. Also, in our market, the "selling" season goes from Jan to May, and summer slows with the heat. But in 2018 there are about 222 people moving to Maricopa County each day, they need a place to live!
Ask your Realtor how long they have had their license. The years of experience is a valuable teacher. There are potential pit-falls in each transaction, you want someone with experience.
