SELLING WITH VOYAGER
Pricing Strategy & Timing
Your Voyager Real Estate agent will research recent sales in your neighborhood of homes similar to yours to help define a price range. Also, your agent takes into consideration any improvements you have made to your home, any defects you do not plan to correct, and the timeframe in which you wish to sell your home.
It is a good idea to do pre-sales inspections before listing your home on the market. Inspections can pinpoint issues that you can address prior to listing or be an excellent disclosure tool. Property inspections give the buyer an objective, independent and comprehensive analysis of the physical condition of your property and check for safety issues that might otherwise be unknown
Negotiations & Sales Agreement
After counteroffers have gone back-and-forth between you and the buyers, and after all the negotiations over price and terms have been accepted, both parties ratify the sales agreement
Preparation & Staging
Anything that can be easily fixed should be addressed prior to listing. Your house should be professionally deep cleaned, including all windows. Ensure your home stays clean, staged and landscaped throughout the process. You want your home to look its absolute best from the professional photo shoot through close of escrow.
Showings & Open House
The most convenient method for showings is to place a lockbox on the property, giving agents access to the key. An open house allows more eyes on your home in a short duration of time will often mean a faster sale. An Open House allows you to skip weeks of individual showings and enjoy the benefits of a one-day affair that optimizes the audience.
Buyers and seller, with the help of their agent, will establish terms and conditions for the transfer of the property. These terms and conditions are given to a third party known as the escrow holder. In turn, the escrow officer has the responsibility of seeing that terms of the escrow have been carried out
Our Goal is to help you sell your homes for top dollar in the shortest amount of time. Our team’s proactive and innovative approach to marketing consistently delivers on these goals. We will market your home on many platforms to ensure it is seen by as many potential buyers as possible.
Offers & Counteroffers
Your agent can play an important role in helping you decide whether a particular offer is worth accepting. If none of the offers you receive are acceptable, consider a counteroffer! You can counteroffer one buyer or multiple buyers, suggesting changes in the terms of the offer or even a higher price.
Closing & Delivery of Funds
The closing is the completion of the real estate transfer, where the title passes from the seller to the buyer. The proceeds from your sale have been delivered. Congratulations! It is time to celebrate the sale of your home
FACTORS THAT AFFECT THE VALUE OF PROPERTY
One of the most important things to do when selling your house is to depersonalize it. The more personal stuff in your house, the less potential buyers can imagine themselves living there.
The single most important factor in determining the value of your property.
The condition affects the price and speed of sale. Optimizing the physical appearance of your property will maximize the buyer’s perception of value.
Prospective buyers compare your property.
THE IMPORTANCE OF INTELLIGENT PRICING
Many factors influence and affect the value of your home. When it is time to set a price your Voyager sales professional will perform a comparable market analysis and a price trend analysis that includes local market trends and recent comparable sales so you can determine your home’s true market value.
ASKING PRICE vs TIMING
Timing is extremely important in the real estate market. It is critical to place your property on the market at a realistic price and terms from the very beginning. Research proves that a property attracts the most interest and excitement from potential buyers when it is first listed. Therefore, the highest chance of a sale is when a property is new to the market. It is imperative to price a home correctly from the beginning. Interest in a particular home peaks when it is first listed. This is when the greatest number of real estate agents and prospective buyers come to see a home. Therefore, the highest chance to sell a home at a fair market value is when it first goes on the market. Based on the price pyramid, more prospective buyers are brought in when a house is listed at fair market value than if it is listed at a higher than market value.
