As a REALTOR® specializing in representing sellers, I have learned from years of experience the key elements that can make, or break, a residential home sale. I serve my sellers with due diligence in the beginning, strong negotiating skills when needed, and constant communication throughout.

Let me share with you a few ways to make the most of your DFW area home sale.

Planning and Discussion

Don’t wait till the last second to start planning your sale. When you first think about it, reach out to a pro you can ask questions of. I use this stage for considering financial and lifestyle decisions, as well as setting a timetable with my clients.  You won’t believe what a stress reliever it is to have a solid plan I place before your ‘for sale’ sign is in the yard.

Pricing and Terms

During the planning stage the condition of your home is reviewed, and that makes setting your asking price much easier. The asking price for your home must be realistic and based on current sale prices of homes near yours. Along with the price, a talk about the terms (length of time to close, whether you will accept contingencies, the preferred type of loan your buyer will have, and so much more) should be conducted.

Stage to Impress

Once you are actively selling your home, do these things:

  • Have flexible viewing times to accommodate buyers.
  • Reduce clutter to make your home look spacious. 
  • Put away personal items such as photographs and keep decorative ornaments to a minimum.
  • Make the exterior shine and the front entrance warm and welcoming.
  • Brighten the interior by adding color, open up blinds and curtains. 
  • Keep the temperature in your home at a comfortable level.

These are just highlights. There are many more details that make up a smooth and profitable home sale. My client-care plan and marketing approach are proven, thorough, and lead to success. I look forward to a face-to-face meeting when you are ready to transition out of your home. Contact me in the Early stage, when you first think about selling!
