You’ll want to consider the following:
Most homes need a little touching up in order to catch a buyer’s eye. Even the neatest of homes can fail in design. Steve can offer you advice about how to stage your home or recommend a professional staging team that his office uses. Making a positive first impression among potential buyers is crucial in selling your home quickly and at a decent sales price. Steve knows from years of experience what makes buyers fall in love with homes. The purpose of staging is to help the buyer visualize the home as theirs. It’s been proven many times that a professionally staged home can net you a higher sales price. Some of the simplest first stages of staging are sometimes the most important. Decluttering, depersonalizing and making a home spic n’ span clean can make a world of difference.
Steve knows that the quality of listing photographs can mean so much in catching the buyer’s eye as they peruse the online listings. Homes listed without professional photography are often overlooked or ignored. Steve Wallace uses only the best real estate photographers in the Bluffton area.
Steve has a lot of experience in pricing strategy. He can help you decide on an appropriate listing sale price that will both appeal to buyers and will benefit you financially.
This is often where sellers go wrong. They anticipate selling their home for far too high a price. Relying on the computer algorithms of Zillow to evaluate your home’s worth is like placing a tail on a “pin the tail on the donkey” game. Zillow estimates are notorious for giving erroneous home estimates. Steve knows this and relies on his vast knowledge of the local real estate market and comparable home prices. Listing a home at a competitive price will help your home attract potential buyers whereas a bloated price will lead to longer time on the market and perhaps a lower net gain in the end. Steve Wallace knows the mistakes that sellers make on pricing, so he can help you avoid those mistakes and use his proven pricing strategy to help your home sell quickly at a decent listing price that benefits you.
This goes hand in hand with pricing strategy. Steve will provide you with a CMA (comparable market analysis) which is a review of comparable homes nearby that are on the market, pending, or sold. The CMA gives you an idea of what buyers are willing to pay for homes like yours in the local market. This allows you and Steve to set a competitive price as discussed above in the pricing strategy section.
Hiring a real estate agent with market savvy is essential in getting your home noticed by potential buyers. Getting buyers in the front door is a huge step in selling your home. In order to do this, marketing techniques are a must. Steve Wallace is a veteran realtor with decades of marketing expertise. Marketing your home involves: installing “for sale” signs (in neighborhoods where covenants allow), delivering flyers, setting up lockbox, placing your home on the MLS, scheduling open houses, and broadcasting your listing via social media. Steve has a lot of connections with other agents, so he can use word of mouth marketing to let others know about your home, too.
Once you receive an offer and with your permission, Steve Wallace will send out messages to other agents and prospective buyers who showed an interest in the home. They will be notified of a potential buy so they can get one last chance to make an offer before the home sells. This could help you get a higher price. Steve will review each offer and negotiate the terms. Steve can guide you through all the legal documentation and review the contract of sale with you line by line to ensure that you’re comfortable with the deal. In the end, Steve can attend the closing meeting with you to ensure that you have all of your requirements met in the sale of your home.
If you need to sell your home quickly, Steve Wallace can conduct a market analysis for you and create an action plan to sell your home as soon as possible.
