Today, I'm upside down - One day soon I will get this right :) - don't get dizzy or think I have special powers...
The top three things that sellers of Santa Clarita real estate need to know. Here they are in bullet point form with their explanations following.
- Get your True Home's Value: This is critically important for any seller to know going in. This will also answer the question if your real estate agent is just trying to undercut your home's true worth to get a fast sale. However, you don't want to rely on the internet syndication websites for your home's value. You want to get that data directly from the sold homes in your area during the past 6 months. You can do this for the Santa Clarita Valley Cities by heading over to Paris911 dot com and typing into the MacBox - the word "Sold" without the quotation marks. You will see a system we have build to display the past 6 months of inventory that has sold in the Santa Clarita Valley Cities.
- The Second Step is learning to search like a real estate Buyer: Where are buyers searching for real estate online. Are they looking at the syndication websites or are they more comfortable searching the local realtor's websites? With this question it would also be important to note who, of the local agents, are showing up at the top of where buyers are searching for real estate. This is viewed by most savvy and tech aware real estate sellers as their secret weapon to get their homes sold for more $$$ and in a faster time frame. In addition, if your agent is talking to you about them listing it exclusively, be careful and think about having 1000 hungry agents bring a buyer versus the one single agent. One more thing, "does your real estate agent know your bottom line? Do they know where you need to be with your sales price - how can you guarantee they are not sharing it with their Buyer?" = Food for thought.
- Marketing, Web 2.0 and client protection: All great topics. The location you want to be is safe. In the cradle with all of the protectors possible. With the best company that has been outfitted to serve your needs as a real estate seller. Marketing and being dug in with various networking groups will make a difference in whether your home sells for a little or a lot. It will make the difference between your home going all of the way through escrow or falling out if something comes up. Be Weary when you are interviewing real estate agents that talk too fast and that are using high pressure sales techniques to get you to list your home with them.
