Selling Your Home?

Home not selling?
If your home has been on the market for 6 months or more and was listed with another agent or perhaps you are going FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and you haven't seen much activity, here are some reasons why your home won't sell.

Ready to sell?

Summary
With the right real estate agent the sale of your home can be profitable and rewarding but only if you understand the sales process, have great curb appeal, are properly marketed, have pre-qualified buyers lined up and can negotiate with the buyer.  I will analyze your home's value against similar properties and will review local real estate trends with you, allowing you to set your home at the best possible price.  As an expert in St. Augustine real estate, I analyze the market constantly.  I will tour your home with the eye of a buyer - what works and what doesn't work.  I'll work closely with you to assure that everything possible is done to get the highest price and your home sells in the time frame you need.

Your Home's Value

The single most important element of selling property is setting the correct price.  If the price is too high

you won't get any offers and your home will sit on the market.  Set it too low and you cheat yourself by not getting

your home's full value.  Complete the form on this page and I'll provide a free comparative market analysis of your home.

Marketing
It is important that marketing your home goes beyond a sign in the front yard. Your home should be marketed 
aggressively.

It should be listed in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and other web sites where buyers are looking.

With technology we can alert both real estate professionals and buyers in the area that your home is for sale.

We can create a buzz about your property through social networking websites.  

As an expert in St. Augustine real estate, I analyze the market constantly. I'll work closely with you to assure

that everything possible is done to get the highest price and your home sells in the time frame you need.
Additionally depending upon your home and needs, we can hold weekend open houses, create listing fliers and

market your home through various local, national and international media.

Curb Appeal and Staging
Your home's condition and appearance is a critical factor in getting the best price. I'll walk through your home with you and advise you of what you can do to show your home most effectively and maximize your earning potential.  To help, I'm providing a Curb Appeal Checklist that you can print to determine if the outside of your house is heady for market.  As you get the outside in tip-top shape, the inside needs attention too.  That's where the Home Staging Checklist comes in.  Make sure your home is ready for sale.


​​Buyers
You need qualified and interested buyers as well as other real estate agents to view your home.  I have a database full of contacts, exposure on the internet and social media.
Additionally, I work with international buyers. From our neighbors to the north (Canada) to the United Kingdom and beyond, I can find a perfect buyer that will take good care of your home.  I have access to multiple MLS's thought Florida and Toronto, Canada in which I can market your property.

Negotiations
Real estate negotiations and contracts can be intimidating and most people have little experience in these negotiations. After all, how often do you buy or sell a house? Getting you the best price and terms is simply part of my job.​​

Selling your home is one of the biggest financial decisions that you can make. It's a course of action that can last a day or many months. The process can be daunting so having a real estate professional on your side takes away the complexity, making it easier.
