Insights from Experts into the Home Selling Process

  • Whenever possible, select your  top agent about 4 to 8 weeks in advance to putting your home in an active MLS internet marketplace
  • The better equipped you are when you know of multiple real estate companies. The better opportunity you’re going to have to make sure you understand what the commitment is
  • Consumers have the ability to be able to get out into the marketplace but with the rules of the MLS these days and all the competition out there. Make sure to give your agents at least 4 to 8 days to have everything in place. In that way, when you put it on the market you have your best foot forward

It can be a wonderful world, when you’re a seller, and/or when you’re a home buyer, when you have the right agent and when you have the right answers to the right questions

Home sellers in today's market

In this current marketplace, should the price always be the determining factor when utilizing

the auction bid approach?

  • There’s always a whole category of items that are important to the seller
  • The 2 most important categories are MONEY and TIME
  • In these times, when you put your house on the market you’re receiving more than 5 offers
  • You, as a seller, need to be able to cipher between that. Buyers tend to throw everything at the wall thinking they can get under contract
  • You need an expert to make sure they can waive through all of it because sometimes the price is not the most important
  • Getting the closing table is the MOST important thing

How to make sure that the agents know how to set up an auction environment for home sellers?

  • Don’t take the first offer if it’s in the first hour so your agent could brag about how they get you top dollar.
  • TOP dollar doesn’t have to be the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd day
  • Consumer possible buyers who may work on the weekends. Try to double-up with the opportunity to make more money
  • 4 to 5 days is the typical auction time for the home sellers
  • Buying a home, sight-unseen, is happening more than ever these days
