As the Real Estate market shifts back to what we consider a “normal market”, the true professionals in this business will rise to the top. While 2013-2014 saw homes fly off the market within days with little marketing effort, homes typically take 30-90 days to sell in a normal market.
When selling a home in this market, a professional Realtor can not only advise you on how to prepare your home to sell, but also on how to price your home in a more difficult market. Some of your minimum expectations should be professional photography and a willingness to hold open houses.
I often hear that “Open Houses don’t sell houses”, yet, I have personally sold homes through open houses. Buyers can now view open houses online, so they often enjoy the convenience of visiting homes this way. Our job is to expose your home to as many buyers as possible, and open houses are proven to bring in more buyers. Basically, we need to work to sell your homes today.
While the public now has access to a plethora of information on the internet, sometimes too much information can be dangerous if your do not fully understand what is being presented to you. A professional Realtor works with these details on a daily basis and can save you time and money by properly guiding you through the selling and buying process. Energy Realty agents are trained to manage the details and protect what should be one of your most valuable assets.
