Selling a home is amongst the most stressful events one will encounter in life. Why? Because to most individuals a home is much more than just a place they have lived. A home is a place where their life has been experienced, where their memories have been made, where their dreams have come to fruition. To most home sellers then, the true value of the home has much more to do with the memories and the feelings that have been experienced therein than a cold, hard number on a sheet of paper. Your home might be the first place that really belonged to you in the world. It could be where you raised your family. It could be a space full the expressions of your tastes and preferences in everything from the paint on the wall to the layout of the kitchen. But when you see the measurements on your wall, lovingly marked out each year signifying a beloved child’s growth, all a buyer may see is an eyesore that will need to be painted over. It is in this difference of perception that many a seller can get lost, needing help in finding a fair market value for something that to them is priceless.
When you choose to hire the right professional to guide you through the process of selling your home, you position yourself for both success and support throughout the process. Luke Stallings is here as a market expert ready to help you sell your home in the most beneficial way possible. By helping you to price your home competitively and stage it to sell, Luke has the expertise and the experience to help you to sell your home with the wide-ranged, long term market data that will help you to price your home to get results. While some sellers will choose to hire a professional appraiser to determine the fair market value in comparison to recent sales trends in your area, others will rely on their agent to help them price their home. This professional support will help the seller set their listing price right at a place most likely to sell the home both quickly and with the greatest possible outcome.
One pitfall that many sellers fall into is letting their emotions for their home inhibit their ability to make the best choices in regards to a sale. Some become offended when the appraised value of their home is less than what they feel it is worth. Some become disillusioned because of the loss in home values experienced across the board with the recent upheaval in the housing market. Some just don’t know where to begin to prepare their home... and themselves... for the sale.
