The market is still stable in the Edmond/Oklahoma City metro, however there is a shortage of homes! The buyers that are currently looking to buy are getting pickier and pickier, so let us help you prepare your home to list it and help you find a Realtor® to use – we’d love for it will be The RED Team!
So how do you do it, you ask? For starters, you need to make your home pristine. For the interior, it needs to be sparkling clean, closet and cabinets organized, clutter free and brightly lit. The exterior needs a minimum of new mulch and some flowers and take some time to touch up the paint with a neutral color. As a seller, you want to present your home with the best light possible so it shines above the competition or think of it in terms of wanting to win the “House Beauty Contest”. This is just a short list of items, but if you would like a very detailed list, please email me at [email protected] and we can send you a copy!
Next, when you go to buy or sell a home in the Oklahoma City or Edmond metro area, you need to hire an exceptional Realtor® or The RED Team to help you with the selling process! Whichever Realtor® you choose will need to have all of these:
- Good negotiation skills
- Willing to find a buyer for your current home or a home for you to buy
- Work full time in the real estate industry
- Loves marketing (or at least have marketing skills)
- Active in the social media realm
- Has a good website to advertise your home.
You can usually qualify a Realtor® by their years of experience, reputation in the area, and testimonials from past clients! To view a list of our past client testimonials, go to www.realestateinedmond.com.
Don’t forget that the list price of the home is one of the biggest selling factors. Pricing your home according to the Comparative Market Analysis for your neighborhood is optimal. Do not price your home for what money you need to pay off a creditor or for what you need for your down payment on your next house. Buyers will only pay what the house is worth. Listen to the market! The National Association of Realtors® says, “that your home is priced too high if it hasn’t sold within two weeks and/or it has not shown 7 times”. Price it for a fair value up front, not too high, and most of the time in the OKC metro, you should not have a problem selling your home in a timely manner!
The goal of every seller and Realtor® is to get the home SOLD! We want to work with you as a team to get your home under contract, in the least amount of time, with the fewest possible headaches for the max sales price! Any Realtor® will tell you that getting your home under contract is just as rewarding to us as it is to you! So how do you make that a reality and not a dream? Call The RED Team and we can help take care of all your real estate needs!
We also have seller and buyer packets that go in to more detail on the buying and selling process. We would love to share those with you if you are interested in one or both of them – just email us at [email protected]!
