Things to Expect When Selling Your Home
As the sales broker for your home, the most important thing that I can do for you initially is to make sure your home is priced appropriately. Understanding the Crestview market, and being able to quickly find comparable sales and perform comparative analysis, is an invaluable skill for me as a Crestview, FL realtor. I work hard to price homes accurately, so that your expectations are in line with the reality of the market. I am dedicated to protecting and promoting your interests, which means that I will share hard truths with you if it means protecting your interests, meeting your objectives, or achieving a better deal.
As your Crestview real estate agent, my goal is to make sure you receive the best deal in the shortest amount of time. Negotiation skills are paramount to selling your home, and I will be your voice in all transactions. I am well versed with the techniques of selling, including making counteroffers, and negotiating things such as repairs or closing costs. You can rely on me to speed up the back and forth between buyer and seller.
I understand that selling a home is stressful. Keeping the home sparkling clean day after day is difficult enough without having to worry about what is going on with the selling process. It is important to me to keep my clients in the know when it comes to feedback following showings, and I will answer any questions you have using your preferred method, whether by text, calls, or email.
Working With You to Find a Home in Crestview
I enjoy working with people to help them find the home they dream of. Whether you are a first-time buyer, a buyer looking to downsize, or if you are looking to an upgrade, I look forward to helping you.
The first meeting with anyone who is looking to buy a home is typically to determine the viability of their wants and needs with respect to prospective neighborhoods and type of home. It is important that homebuyers understand how much they can afford. Many sellers today demand a pre-approval letter from a lender before they even accept an offer. After we have discussed these important factors, it is easier to work out a buying strategy based on your needs, how much you can afford to spend, and the current market conditions.
Shopping for a home means touring available properties, discussing details about each property and its neighborhood, and considering how well they align with your predetermined goals. If they check enough boxes, we make an offer.
The process of making an offer on a home is my job. I will obtain disclosures, have home inspections and repairs negotiated and completed, and coordinate activities that include your lender, attorney, inspectors, appraisers, and any other professionals engaged in the purchase of your new home.
If haggling over price or repairs needs to be done, I can negotiate on your behalf after we have an agreement on what you want. When it is time to sign the closing documents, I am with you to ensure that everything is as it should be.
First-time buyers often do not know exactly what they want. Part of my job is to ask the right questions, often things that those with less experience will not have considered, so we can narrow the focus and achieve success more quickly. It is often helpful to think about your needs versus your wants, based on your current lifestyle and your short-term, mid-term, and long-term goals.
No two buyers are the same, and everyone has their own ways of identifying what they want. Families looking for a home generally have their own unique way of deciding what is most important to them. I will help focus any prospective homeowner on what is within their means and go on from there.
Whether Buying or Selling a Home in Crestview, I Can Be of Service
Many of the same skills are required of an agent whether working for a buyer or a seller. First-hand knowledge of the market is essential in both cases, as are communication and negotiation skills. Patience and the willingness to work with people in oftentimes stressful situations are essential. Helping people, and being willing to work hard on their behalf, makes for a great real estate agent, no matter if it is buying or selling.
Being a real estate agent means that my job centers on helping other people. So, whether I am explaining the home buying process, helping a couple with pre-approval, advising sellers on how to stage their home, introducing a new family to the community, or negotiating a difficult situation, my focus is on helping you get what they want when it comes to buying or selling a home.
I have ample experience and expertise as a Crestview realtor, and am looking forward to being of service to you. There is very little more rewarding than helping my clients to navigate the purchase or sale of a home. For many people, a property purchase or sale will be the largest transaction of their lifetime.
