Market Appraisal We offer this service as an essential part of marketing your home. A true comparative market appraisal is most accurate and reliable when performed by a full time real estate professional who has access to data on thousands of listings that have sold in the area. Judy Rosen since 1980 as a Realtor on which to rely when comparing your home to others that have sold. Because of the uniqueness and distinctiveness of each home, accurate market appraisals require someone who has seen the inside of many comparable homes.
Market Statistics and Activity Ready access to data on average sales prices in each area, market activity sorted by numerous qualifiers such as price, amenities, market time, percentage change. Activity is a condition that does not necessarily show up immediately in statistics. Since there is a lag, it is important to have an agent that has her hand on the pulse of the market so that you will be able to anticipate trends. How many people have sold low right before the market ticked up? Or bought high right before the market ticked down?
Market Plan This plan for selling your home can be tailored to you. We're sure you have seen lots of complex literature detailing how to market your home. In truth, it's not that complicated, but it does require work, diligence, knowledge and a network of exposure to buyers and sellers. Since we are a small company we can devote more attention to you, as well as offer a flexibility that larger companies cannot.
Buyer Brokerage We have represented many buyers in the purchase of a home. For most people, buying a home is the largest purchase they will make in their lives.
