Pricing Your Home
When selling your home, we can give you up-to-date information on what is happening in the marketplace. Price, financing terms, and condition of competing properties are key factors in getting your property sold at the best price, quickly, and with minimum hassle.
Staging Your Home
You've got one chance to make a first impression as the buyer will likely "fall in love" with your home within the first 30 seconds. That's why it's important to get your home ready to sell. Often, Brian can recommend repairs or cosmetic changes that will significantly enhance the sellability of your property. He will also explain to you how to property "stage" your home and get it ready for buyers.
Marketing Your Home
Brian will market your property to other real estate agents and the public. In most cases; a real estate broker other than your listing broker will bring in the buyer. He acts as the marketing coordinator, disbursing information about your property to the public as well as to other real estate brokers through a Multiple Listing Service, cooperative marketing networks, open houses for brokers, and many other marketing avenues.
There are many negotiating factors, including but not limited to price, financing, terms, date of possession and often the inclusion or exclusion of repairs and furnishings or equipment. The purchase agreement should provide a period of time for you to allow the purchaser to complete appropriate inspections and investigations of the property. Brian will be there every step to guide you through this process.
More often than not, a buyer will get an inspection on your house. The inspection takes place AFTER the contract is signed by both parties. The inspector is looking for “Major Defects” which will cost over $1,500 to repair or fix. The buyer can walk away if one “Major” is discovered. Seller can fix “All, None, or Some”.
Brian will guide you through the closing process and make sure everything flows together smoothly. Between the initial sales agreement and closing, questions may arise and the required paperwork alone is overwhelming for most sellers. I will be the best resource for you to objectively help you resolve any issues and move the transaction to closing.

Considering a real estate purchase without the professional assistance of a real estate agent could cost you thousands.
