How We Market Your Home
Thank you for considering me to sell your property.
Your choice of a Real Estate Broker to represent you is an important one. The information presented here will confirm your decision to hire me.
I will guide you through the entire sale process smoothly and efficiently, keeping you up to date on all activity and market trends. My experience in selling Sun City Roseville, The Club at Westpark, Springfield Whitney Oaks and Sun
City Lincoln Hills homes will result in a successful sale with the least possible inconvenience to you. I know you will be pleased with the Seller Services that I provide.
Step by Step to a Successful Sale:
I provide you with a comprehensive market analysis of comparable properties sold and offered for sale in your neighborhood to assist you in determining the correct asking price. The correct selling price of a home is the highest price that the market will bear.
To assist you in determining the correct asking price I will provide you with a comprehensive market analysis of comparable properties that have been recently offered for sale in your neighborhood.
The analysis is based strictly on homes that can be considered similar to yours and is prepared the day of your appointment with me.
This ‘Comprehensive’ property analysis is divided into four categories:
- Similar properties that are currently listed
- Similar properties that have recently sold
- Similar properties that have sales pending
- Similar properties that are exclusively listed
By carefully studying the comparable property locations, features, and the terms under which they are offered, I can develop a clear picture of the potential market for your property.
By looking at the properties currently listed, you and I see exactly what alternatives a serious buyer has to choose from. We can be certain that we are not under pricing the property.
By looking at similar properties recently sold, we can see what homeowners have actually received over the last few months. This is the acid test that is used by lending institutions to determine how much they will be willing to lend a buyer for your home.
While we naturally want top market value for the home, we can agree that there’s a point where the price would be too high. By looking at homes that didn’t sell, we can accurately determine that price point and be careful not to get too close to it.
By doing our homework diligently, we can get maximum dollars in a reasonably short period of time.
I provide a Home Stager, and we can arrange and advise you of any necessary repair and how you may best prepare your home for showing.

And Then Help Us Sell Your Home
Be a Partner:
Think of me as your partner in the sale of your home. We’ll be more effective if we work as a team.
Tell us everything about your home — positive and negative. The only way I can do the best job selling your home is to know exactly what there is to sell and to make the most of it.
Be Open to Suggestions:
Seek my advice and consider it seriously. You’ve hired a Professional; make sure you take advantage of my knowledge. I know what your home is competing against and what potential buyers say when they compare your home to others on the market.
Be a Seller not an Owner:
Proud as you are of your home, try to look at it objectively. Think of it, not as an Owner would, but as an astute seller would. What changes can you make to increase its attraction?
Be on Call:
Have your home in “showing shape” every day. Do everything you can to accommodate potential buyers’ schedules when they want to see your home.
When buyers look at your home, they’ll feel more comfortable if another broker/agent or if I show your home. If it’s possible, plan to be away during showings.
Tips For Preparing Your Home:
With buyers, first impressions count. A small investment in time and money will give your home an edge over other listings in the area when the time comes to show it to a prospective buyer.
