Buyers continue to steer clear of homes that are overpriced. Homes that are moving quickly have similar characteristics. They offer updates, are priced correctly, and have reasonable showing instructions that make it convenient for agents to arrange for a tour. Although it's a seller's market that doesn't mean putting the time in to properly prepare your home for sale isn't necessary. Buyers are savvy and the majority are seeking a turnkey home. Use our home value tool to get an estimate of what your home is worth in the current market.

Market reports and home value tools are a good starting point in determining your homes value but, nothing replaces the expertise of a local agent that knows the neighborhood and has a pulse on the market at all times. Updates and overall condition of a home greatly impact price and it takes a professional eye to go through your home in person in order to arrive at the correct value. The little details make a big difference and proper pricing from the day your home hits the market is a must for a successful sale. If you'd like to setup a consultation reach out to us and let's talk. We are full time agents in Kingstowne and are happy to answer your questions.
