What’s Your Home Worth?

Finding out your home’s value in today’s real estate market is easy! Check out our Free Home Valuation page where you can enter a few details about your home and we will generate a full CMA (Comparable Market Analysis) on your home that will give you detailed & recent local Real Estate Market trends, recently sold properties, pending property sales, comparable homes values, neighborhood values, and more. We will give you all of the tools & data to see what similar homes are selling for so you can price your home right the first time. This along with our knowledge of the current buyer/seller activity is the best way to get an accurate estimate of what your home will sell for in today’s current real estate market. Together we can combine your selling needs, the market data and our experience to set the best selling price for your home to get it sold fast and for top dollar.

Marketing Your Home

When listing you home, you will have many real estate agents competing to work with you. What makes a Benchmark different than all of the rest? The services we offer. Many real estate agents are stuck in the old marketing ways of the past and don’t take the time to learn new ways to market your home like Social Media Marketing, Single Property Web pages, Virtual tours, etc. That’s one of the things that make us different. We are constantly looking for new ways to bring more traffic and buyers to your home. We understand the importance of using technology & social media to get your home sold fast & for top dollar. Check out our Marketing your Home page and you can see all of the things you get in black and white. From Negotiating you the best deal, Professional Photos, Virtual Tours, Open houses to Online Exposure and Single Property Web pages our services go above and beyond our local competitors.

Negotiation & Offers

Having an experienced REALTOR® in your corner is especially important come negotiation time. This is more than just a financial arrangement; it’s an emotional one, as well. Selling your home can mean a job change, school changes for your children, and possibly leaving behind everything familiar to you and your family. People will be coming in and out of your home, sizing it up for themselves. As your REALTOR®, we will wear many hats, and you can be confident that we know our market thoroughly and can answer all questions about your home, the community & the local real estate market. From fielding phone calls about your home, watching out for potential problems in offers & counter-offers to drafting complex paperwork, we will work hard to make your home selling process as stress-free as possible & get your home sold in the quickest possible time frame while protecting your best interests.

Closing Time

Once you’ve finally accepted an offer on your home, inspections will be done to satisfy both the buyer and their mortgage lender. Many sale agreements are incredibly complex and feature a number of qualifications and fine print. This can be confusing and may include additional requests and addendum’s. We are familiar with these documents and can help guide you through the process.

Home Staging

The difference between a staged home and an un-staged home can translate to thousands of dollars in the sale price. Clutter often makes rooms seem smaller, and overwhelming decorations may prevent a potential buyer from envisioning their own style in the room. This is a time to truly accept that you’re moving forward and allow yourself to picture your home through potential buyers’ eyes. Watch the below video to see how Home Staging can help buyers see your home as more attractive and help your home sell faster. When you are ready, we will guide you through the staging process so together we can prepare your home and get it SOLD!

Packing & Moving

Depending on how far you’re moving, you may require the assistance of a professional mover. Large, bulky items like television sets and furniture are not generally accepted by companies like FedEx or UPS. Consider not only the cost to move, but other factors like time and proper equipment. Though professional movers may seem pricey at first, when you look at the time and money to get similar results, you may re-consider. Be sure to get moving estimates in writing and compare several companies. Ask for discounts and be sure to only use licensed, bonded movers. Also make a checklist so that you’re organized and efficient. Or ask us! We often have knowledge of many local companies that can make your move easier.
