Your home is likely to be your single biggest investment and one of the largest financial transactions you'll ever make. When you sell, you want to get the best price and the most favorable terms that fit your needs and goals. However there's much more to selling a home than putting a "For Sale" sign in the front yard. There are many elements that go into the sale that need to be professionally and effectively done in order for your home transaction to go smoothly.
The best way to make sure you sell your home for the best price, and in the shortest amount of time, is to work with one of our full service, experienced brokers from start to finish. We're educated in every aspect of the listing process from determining an accurate list price, creating marketing that will promote the home effectively, negotiating the terms of the contract, inspections, appraisals and following the transaction through to the close of escrow.
The Seattle market is currently a good one to be a seller in with continued low inventory and solid demand making it more of a sellers market than a buyers market. There are elements to the listing process which can help you as the seller take advantage of the market and garner the best terms and price for your property. That starts with an accurate evaluation of the market value of your home.
Determining an accurate market value is much more intensive than an automated value created by a website algorithm. It requires an in-depth, in-person review of the property and all of its characteristics, elements and details. That information is then evaluated along with recent similar sales as well as current competition in the market to determine the best potential pricing strategy for your property. In this age of technology with websites such as Zillow and Redfin producing value estimates for properties based on only public available data, there is nothing more accurate than having one of our professionals evaluate all of the necessary elements in person that go into determining a true and correct market value for your property. If you'd like to learn more about why automated values are not the best way to price your property navigate to the Market Value part of our Seller Guide below.
We welcome the opportunity to meet with you about your property and do a free, no sales pressure market evaluation for you. At a minimum you may find out that you have more equity that you thought or you might be better off waiting a bit before considering selling to maximize your return. Our goal is to provide you with our honest and thorough evaluation of your property and its potential to be listed, promoted and sold in the current Seattle area market. We will also go over our detailed and extensive marketing plan individually tailored to sell you home as quickly as possible for the maximum value in the current market.
