Seller Tips

Over the years, I’ve learned so many fantastic tips that I think that have been a huge help to my local homeowners.

I’ve actually been able to put them together into a series of reports, that I think you’ll find invaluable moving forward

I try to add a different report each month, but here is a quick summary of some of the most recent additions from this fall.

The first was based on the fact that even though 18,000 homes sold in our area last year, 13,000 that had been listed failed to sell.  I was totally shocked at this 40% failure rate?  After analyzing the data though, I found some interesting patterns, and put together Report #1 –  The Top 10 Reasons Homes in Central Massachusetts Didn’t Sell. “  After all, what better way to learn, than from the past mistakes of others?

The second report was based on what I observed as an ability to sell homes for higher prices than expected. Time and time again, I had properties that pushed the limits, yet had offers at or over asking price within a day or two.  Once again, I stopped and looked to see just what we’re doing right, in this case, and put together Report #2 – 10 Ways to Increase the Net Sales Price of Your Home.   That was even more popular that the first, with dozens of emails, not just from here, but from other states as well, once it went viral on social media.

The third report came about after many experiences with using my pre-marketing teams to get properties into optimal condition for a top dollar sale.  Clearly, the last thing on the minds of a homeowner who is considering moving, is dumping more money into their current property.  That said, there are some amazing opportunities to reap large returns, if you do it correctly.  Obviously, nobody wants to put $1000 into a homer, to get $500 back.  In fact, I would go so far as two say that nobody wants to dump $1000 into the home, to get even $1000 back.  On the other hand, if you can put in $1000 and get $5000 back, isn’t that something any of us would do, any day of the week?  I know I would.  For those people who really want to maximize the value of their homes, I put together  Report #3 – “The Top 10 Home Improvements that Yield the Greatest Return.”  This contains some amazing tips that have consistently worked for my clients for decades.

For this months report, I again asked around to see what people wanted to learn more about, and the clear choice was pricing a property to achieve the maximum potential sale, without sitting on the market.  Seemed like a good idea, so for this month I wrote up Report #4 – Establishing the Optimal Listing Price for a Top Dollar sale.

In this report, I talk a bit about the classis dilemma of over-pricing, vs. under-pricing, and the fact that often, if you play your cards right, you can get more, by asking less.  Of course, other times, it’s better to defy the comparable sales, and ask more.   We’ll talk about how to evaluate that in detail, and come up with the best strategy for you and your family.

If you want a copy of this months report, or either of the other three, just drop me an email at report@shrewsbury.net and I will email them right over for you.  These things have been compiled from my 28 years as one of the top Realtors in the state, and I really think you’ll find them to be truly unique and informative.
