Michelle Gillespie, Realtor, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices
Our spring market has been “hot” and our summer real estate market is heating up!
Most of my listings are seeing multiple offers. Right now in our area, housing inventory is very low. Buyers and buyer’s agents are frustrated, looking for new fresh inventory to purchase. What does this mean for potential sellers? Fewer properties means a seller’s market and less competition for your property! Properly priced and marketed properties are selling, so if you are thinking of selling, now’s the time!
Are you ready to sell?
If you are ready to put your house on the market, let me suggest a few strategies.
Selling for a Profitable Listing:
The greatest challenge for every seller is determining the right listing price. Is it too high or is my listing too low? Will I get multiple offers? What should my initial listing price be?
As a seller, strategic planning is essential not only determining a competitive listing price but also marketing your home. As a listing agent I provide my client with a professional prepared competitive market analysis which will show how your property compares to similar properties sold in your town, and utilize the data of what has sold, so that you can estimate what buyers are willing to pay for a property like yours. Properly priced homes will sell quickly and in today’s market may even receive mutilple offers.
Here are a few client testimonials from this spring:
“Jeff and I want to thank you very much for going above and beyond our expectations on the sale of our home! From the professional photographer you hire, which really showed our home so nice, to the luncheon you have for the area brokers to view our home. You were always quick to respond back with any questions we had. All this resulted in multiple offers – over asking price! Would definitely use your services again!”

“We are firm believers in having your home professionally marketed and staged. That’s all it takes – is an open mind and a willingness to do what the pros are suggesting. Our home had multiple offers over the asking price before the Open House had occurred. Michelle’s professionalism, knowledge and experience as a Realtor made it possible to sell our home quickly for the price we were looking for.”
Mark and Teresa Leahy

“I was recently transferred back to California for work. I met with Michelle to work through what I should do to cost effectively stage the house for the fastest sale possible and then came up with a listing price. She generated excellent professional photos and marketing brochures. Then, before we listed it, she did a final current market analysis and felt that we could raise our listing price because the market was ‘hot’ with limited inventory. Over 50 families had seen the house and we received several offers allowing me to purchase a California home. This is my second real estate transaction with Michelle and I would definitely recommend her as a Realtor.”

Marketing Your Property To Sell:
Homebuyers begin their search on the Internet. My state-of-the-art website will provide you with the information you need, from houses online and receiving updates via e-mail to using many of the links as helpful tools. To showcase your home online, I hire a professional photographer who will photograph your home, which will be included on many other real estate websites and in my marketing materials. In addition to Internet marketing, I provide my clients with print and direct mail advertising to ensure they receive as much coverage for their listing as possible.
In tandem with high seller demand, my marketing plan will be more efficient and effective in selling your home.
