If you have landed on our Seller’s Information page, you must be thinking about selling your Intown Atlanta condominium or home. Selling your home is every bit a major event as it was buying it. But now you are looking at things from a different perspective. And we are here to help you with that view.
There are many steps that must happen…from the initial meeting with the real estate professional all the way to the closing table and turning the keys over to the new owners. I could make a long list, but the most important thing to you is getting your Intown Atlanta condominium or home SOLD!
Location, Location, Location
Sure, you’ve heard that phrase before. Whether you live in an Intown Atlanta neighborhood, or “OTP” , we want to look at your location and how we can best market that location. Now, you could have some issues with the specific location of your Midtown Atlanta condominium or home, and we will discuss all the options available to you to make your home attractive to Buyers looking in the Midtown Atlanta market.
Price, Price, Price
Now this is the Seller’s challenge in today’s market. I often ask a potential Seller, “Do you want to be ON the real estate market, or IN the real estate market?” If you want to be IN the real estate market, then price is going to be your most important consideration. And as a Seller, you face many challenges, and as your real estate professional, I am here to help you understand each and every one of them. Today’s market requires aggressive pricing.
Pricing your Midtown Atlanta condominium or home can be the difference of being ON the market for months, or IN the market and SOLD in weeks! The price you ask will determine what prospective Buyers will see your home. The home buyer starts their home search on line, and many times it starts first with price, then with features or location.
The arrival of the pandemic in 2020 created some challenges when it came to showing your home to prospective Buyers. Of course we remember the masks and hand sanitizer! But there was a big increase in video tours, and being much more selective in who came into your home to view it. Some of those steps, or if you want to call it a process, remain in place today.
- Serious Buyers – we make sure that Buyer’s are pre-approved before they come to see your home. Of course we don’t control that part of the process, but we communicate with the Buyer’s agent when they schedule a showing to make sure they are working with a qualified buyer.
- Designated Showing Times – if your schedule now has you working from home more than in the past, we can work around your schedule to avoid disruptions to your work schedule while still accommodating the Buyer’s showing request.
- Temporary Occupancy Agreements – Concerned you have not found your next home? In this competitive market, it can often be possible to negotiate an agreement for you to remain in your home for a period of time after closing, to help you make this transition. Most lenders will not allow more than 30 days of temporary occupancy, but if the Buyer is paying cash for your home, there can be much more flexibility. It all depends on the Buyer’s occupancy needs.
The Marketing Plan
You probably would not set out on a road trip without some kind of idea or knowledge of where you were going. Well, when you decide to sell your Midtown Atlanta condominium or home, you too need to have a plan. And that is what we do as your real estate professional.
Part of our Marketing Plan is to review the condition of your condominium or home. We’ll talk about things like painting, repairs, de-cluttering and more. We will suggest some of our other team members that can assist you if there are repairs needed or perhaps even consult with a staging professional to make your home look its best. We want it to tell a story of how the new Buyers would feel living there.
