Century 21 – Blackwell & Co.

Home Selling

In today’s real estate market, having an expert on your side guiding you through the home selling process is invaluable. Homebuyers have much more information at their fingertips, thanks to the Internet. According to the National Association of REALTORS®, in 2022, nearly 90% of homebuyers used an online tool to search for homes, with 60% of these buyers using mobile devices.

Being a part of CENTURY 21 franchise allows me have access to unlimited resources and tools to list your property across multiple platforms. Consumers have selected CENTURY 21 brand as the “most respected in the industry”, as well as being the “most recognized name in real estate”. Having offices worldwide means your home will be promoted exclusively within our program ListGlobally, attracting a larger volume of buyers on an international scale. Our C21® Syndicated Listings Program distributes listings to over 170 Websites nationwide. Not only will your home be advertised on the MLS, Zillow, REALTOR.com, and Trulia, but it will also be marketed across social media platforms, ensuring that you gain the most exposure to potential buyers in the area. Whether the right buyer for your home is local, out of state, or international, I will get your property in front of them.

A Few of the MANY services I offer:

  • Professional staging- adding the right furniture, décor, and accents, allows the buyer to picture themselves in your home without all the clutter or personal items as a distraction. Staging your home can increase your chance of an offer by 20%!
  • Professional Photography- capturing the best views and angles of your home and highlighting the beast features. This is necessary for making your home stand out on the internet, capturing the consumer’s attention.
  • 3D Floor Plans- essential for giving the buyers a complete portrayal of the home’s measurements, angles, layout, and understanding of the property. This allows them to visualize what it would be like to live in the home, similar to a 3D virtual tour (also included).
  • Aerial Drone Footage/Photography- allows potential buyers to get a full glimpse of the property and lay of the land. Buyers want to see the whole package, and this provides the ability to highlight some of the best features of the property from a true POV (point of view).
  • Cleaning/Decluttering Services- if your home needs some TLC (tender-loving-care), I have trusted cleaning crews that are licensed and insured that can assist with detailing your home and making it sparkle! I also offer decluttering and junk removal services for larger properties or those who have items to get rid of before listing.

When is a good time to Sell?

Statistically speaking, the best times of year to sell your home are spring and summer, when there is more buyer activity. However, since the housing market is constantly fluctuating, it is always best to consult with a trusted REALTOR ®, like myself, to get an accurate assessment of the current market conditions at the time you are planning to sell.  Various factors like school schedules, vacation buyers, and weather, all play an important role in buyer demand.

Some other factors that can influence selling your home:

  • Your personal circumstances: If you need to sell your home quickly, you may be willing to accept a lower price. However, if you have more time, you may be able to get a higher price by waiting for the right buyer. Your motivation for selling will play a crucial role in getting your home listed and sold for top value in your market.
  • The condition of your home: If your home needs repairs, you may want to wait until you have had a chance to make the necessary improvements. Buyers are more likely to be interested in a home that is in good condition. ALWAYS speak with a REALTOR® before making improvements to your home. A REALTOR® will advise you on what repairs are necessary to sell your home, and which ones will add the most value to your home given your specific area.  You always want to choose to repair or upgrade the items that will give you the most return on investment.  What is going on in a local market will directly impact what improvements you need to make and how you need to price your property to maximize its value.
  • Your budget: If you are buying a new home, you may want or need to sell your current home before you start looking. This will give you more time to find the right home and the funds necessary to leverage and negotiate a good price. A trusted REALTOR® will assist you with planning your next move and will be your guide to navigating through the selling and relocation process.

Your home is likely your most valuable asset. It is understandable that you would want to get the most money for it, especially if you have put a lot of time and money into maintaining the property.

Bottom line: it is a good time to sell when it is right for you personally (finances, lifestyle changes, market conditions, etc.)
