Selling Your Home

So, you’re ready to sell your home? That’s great! Whether this is your first time listing a house or you’ve gone through this process before, deciding to put your house on the market is a stressful time. My objective as a Dallas REALTOR® is to give you the information and resources you need to make an informed decision before selecting the right real estate agent to work with.

Pricing Your Home in Dallas

I know that as a homeowner you want to maximize your profit when selling a home, but even in a seller's market, you can't price your home at whatever you think it'll bring. The buyer will always determine how much your home is worth.

To ensure that your home is priced correctly, we will review a Comparable Market Analysis at our listing appointment together. We will discuss other houses in the area that are currently on the market or that have recently sold and compare them to yours.

By pricing your house correctly, we'll be able to garner more attention right out of the gate. Remember, a house gets the most attention the first two weeks that it's on the market. After that, only new buyers entering the market place will see it. While you may believe pricing your home a little higher leaves room for negotiation, I recommend pricing it a little lower and letting the buyers negotiate better offers for it.

Working with a Dallas Real Estate Agent

If you’ve gone through the process of selling a house before, then the thought of selling it yourself might have crossed your mind. While it may seem as though all we do is throw a sign in the yard and take photos, there is more to it.

Recent studies have shown that more and more buyers entering the market place start their home search online, compared to only the handful who still look in the newspaper. As a Dallas REALTOR®, I have a marketing strategy that includes syndicating your listing up to 900 websites.

You’ll also want to keep in mind the paperwork and negotiating that comes with selling a home. Between reading and understanding the contracts and going up against a buyer’s agent who knows the industry, you won’t have someone fighting for your best interests. When selecting an agent, be sure to choose someone who knows and understands your goals and will work hard to accomplish them. 

Marketing Your Home in Dallas

As a Dallas REALTOR® who is affiliated with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, I can market your house using an exclusive marketing program only available through our brokerage. This program not only includes professional photos, postcards, and brochures, but your home will also be featured on the weekly TV show, At Home in North Texas, be promoted through social media channels, receive a spot in D Magazine, and more.
