The spring real estate market begins in February and March. Currently, the local housing inventory is low, especially in certain neighborhoods.
Just look at the numbers for single-family homes on the market: Northborough has 19; Westborough with 23; Southborough at 23; Hudson at 21; and Marlborough with 34 properties.
As a listing agent, I have buyers and buyers’ agents who are looking for new listings. What does this mean for you as a potential seller in a sellers’ market? With less inventory and a professionally marketed property, it will sell quickly.
If your goal is to sell your home, now is the time to begin the process of evaluating, planning and listing your home. My listings have sold and my new listings will be ready for the spring market. As an experienced, top-producing, fulltime agent, I know how to properly market, price and sell properties. If your property is priced and marketed correctly, it will sell this spring. Are you ready to sell? Here are a few suggestions to get you the best price for your home.
Pricing for a Profitable Listing
The greatest challenge for every seller is the listing price: What should my initial listing price be? As a listing agent, I work with sellers using strategic planning to determine a competitive listing price. It should not be an emotional decision, which is why my professional estimation of a legitimate selling price will be extremely valuable for your pricing strategy.
As a top producer in real estate with many years of experience, I will objectively evaluate your home’s location, condition – both interior and exterior, property updates, features and size of your home. Properly priced homes will sell quicker and, as your Realtor, I will work with you to determine what that price should be. In the end I will negotiate on your behalf to ensure a good, reasonable market price for the sale of your home.
Marketing your Property
To showcase your home, I hire a professional photographer and stager to present your home in attractive photographs, which will be published on many other real estate websites and in my marketing materials. In addition to internet marketing, I provide my clients with print advertising in the Community Advocate and the Real Estate Guide, plus direct mail marketing to potential buyers, providing the best coverage possible for your listing. The best way to share my work style is with a customer testimonial:
“Michelle was such a pleasure to work with on selling our house and buying our new home. We just had a baby a few months prior, so selling and buying a new house seemed a little crazy, but Michelle made the whole process seamless and allowed us to get into our forever home! She was always willing to answer any questions we had, took time to come meet us, and went back and forth with the listing agents on several items that popped up. She was always available whenever we needed her, whether it was day or night. Michelle created such a great demand for our house that we even sold over asking price which was more than we expected. With her photographer, Michelle made our house look great for the listing and it sold within days of being on the market. Michelle has been so thoughtful and willing to support us through the whole process. We couldn’t have done it without her and are so grateful that we had her as our agent.”
