Selling a Home In Denver, Colorado
Selling your home is a journey. My primary job as a listing agent is to make that journey as smooth as possible for you. Along the way there are several tasks to complete and scenarios to consider. My experience as a listing agent means I’m equipped to promote your interests and assist you every step of the way.
Why are you selling? Maybe you are moving out of the area. Maybe your family is growing and you need more space. Maybe you are ready for a smaller home and yard. Whatever the reason, I will help you be prepared for your next step in housing. One important task is speaking with a qualified mortgage lender about your financing options. Even if you are planning to rent, a mortgage lender might show you ways you could own your next home instead.
What is your home worth? Sellers want to get the highest possible price in the shortest time with the least amount of inconvenience. Accurate and competitive pricing is the key to reaching this objective. By analyzing recent market data, current economic conditions, and the condition and location of your home, I can prepare a comparative market analysis, or CMA, to help determine the ideal listing price range for your home.

What will it cost to sell? You want to know what you will be walking away with when the sale of your home is complete. The first step is to contact your mortgage lender to determine your current mortgage payoff amount. With that information, even before listing your house, I can give you an accurate estimate of the expected net proceeds you will receive from your sale. Some costs that will affect your estimated proceeds include:
Real estate commissions
Attorney or closing agent professional fees
Prorated costs for your share of annual expenses, such as property taxes, home owner association fees
Government recording fees
With an accurate CMA, your current loan payoff, and an estimate of your selling costs, I can give you an idea of what you can expect to gain from the sale of your house.
How can you prepare your house to sell? The adage that you only get one chance to make a first impression is definitely true now more than ever. Buyers are educated and savvy and they are waiting to be impressed. Make sure your house is “show ready” by taking advantage of my educated eye. As a REALTOR®, I walk through houses every day and I have seen that how a home looks will have a significant impact on how quickly that house sells and whether it sells at full market value.
The end in sight - closing the deal. Buyers and sellers are not adversaries. Both parties want the same thing - a sale. It may take a little work and a lot of patience to find common ground but working with an experienced REALTOR® will increase the likelihood of a successful sale.
