Selling your home is a complex — and sometimes emotional — business. Between the legal and financial aspects, there are a lot of moving parts, and sellers may feel overwhelmed.

If you're looking to sell your Roanoke real estate, I can help. As a Realtor, I'm an expert in both the market and the process. I'm always concerned with protecting your best interests and making the experience as easy as possible. With so much on the line, having someone in your corner can make all the difference.

Productive Property Preparation

Before you sell your home, it's important to get it into shape. This may mean steps as simple as a new coat of paint or as complicated as bringing your electricity up to code.

Over my years working in real estate, I've connected with many construction professionals who can assist with minor and major repairs. You don't have to worry about scammers with my recommendations — I only suggest people I trust to get the job done right. This can save you time you'd otherwise spend researching, which gets your residence on the market that much faster.

Effective Marketing

Even though it involves a very personal subject, selling your home needs to be treated as a business decision, which means we need to add marketing. It's essential that we appeal to buyers, and I have several resources I can use to help us gain interest:

  • Digital advertising
  • Open houses
  • MLS listings
  • Flyers
  • Social media advertising
  • Local newspaper ads

I can also make use of my network of real estate professionals to find potential buyers. This may lead to opportunities that simply aren't available to someone outside the field.

Accurate Pricing

Determining a fair price involves many factors, including fluctuations in the market and details about the home. If you ask for too much, your house could be up for sale for a long time, but if you ask for too little, you're not getting your residence's true value.

My long-time experience in real estate provides me with insight into your home's market value. Since I'm familiar with prices in the same area, I can help you set an amount that truly represents what your home is worth.

Thorough Monitoring

There are a lot of legalities to keep track of when selling a home. Here are a few issues that require careful attention:

  • Title
  • Financing
  • Insurance

Much of it involves jargon or complicated requirements you may not fully understand. My job is to stay on top of the paperwork so you don't have to. I'll keep you informed of any necessary documents or actions you need to take.

Tough Negotiations

If the market is in your favor, you may have a bidding war on your hands. Even without multiple buyers, coming to an agreement on a final price can be a complex process. Here my experience gives me an advantage since I'm familiar with bargaining tactics and even have a few tricks of my own. I'm dedicated to getting you a fair deal, no matter what.

Selling your home doesn't have to be a trying experience. With the right assistance, you can smoothly navigate the selling process and come out on top. If you're interested in my services or want to learn more, contact me today.
