Meeting the Challenge
Selling your home can be a major challenge. I'll help you meet that challenge by professionally marketing your home so that it sells at the best price and as quickly as possible.
And, I promise that you will feel in control at all times!My Commitment to You:
- I will professionally evaluate and market your home
- I will council and advise you throughout the process
- I will be there to make your home selling experience as problem free as possible.
I have prepared the pages to the right to get you started. I hope you will find them helpful.
Feel free to call me to for information on current market conditions, interest rates, your home's value or any other questions you need answered.
What's the Right Price?
Setting the right price is critical to getting the most for your home and selling it quickly. A CMA is 'REALTOR®-speak' for a Competitive Market Analysis. It is a tool that REALTORS® use to estimate the value of a seller's property.
When prepared carefully and thoroughly, it is a very useful tool. To be most accurate, the REALTOR® needs to have seen your home, previewed the similar homes for sale in your neighborhood - your competition, and be familiar with both the neighborhood and the homes in it that have recently sold.
I put a lot of effort into this process and can give you the facts and insight to set the right price. After we've listed your home, I'll keep up with the market and let you know if conditions change.
I'm also happy to provide you with a free list of recent sales activity in your neighborhood.

Getting Your Home Ready to Sell
The importance of getting your home ready to sell cannot be overemphasized. When we list your home, it needs to be as good as it can be.
I look at hundreds of homes every year. I see the same mistakes being made over and over. I've introduced buyers to houses that I know meet their needs, only to have them rejected because of errors in presentation that could have easily been corrected.
I can help you avoid these mistakes. And I'll be persistent, because we both want to get your home sold.

Getting the best price means bringing you the right buyers for your house. This requires a combination of a solid marketing plan, targeted media exposure, and taking advantage of Ebby Halliday's powerful network of local and out-of-town buyers. These are resources no other firm can beat.
Your comprehensive marketing program will include all of the traditional marketing tools, but I'll especially use the Internet. Studies have shown that the great majority of homebuyers begin their search on the Internet and I'll make sure that your home is on the very best sites.
