Lapeer MI – Planning To Sell Your Home This Winter? – Team Success Listing LLC
With higher mortgage rates and moderating buyer demand, conditions in the housing market are different today. And if you’re thinking of selling your house, it’s important to understand how the market has changed and what that means for you. The best way to make sure you’re in the know is to work with us.
Here are five reasons working with us can ensure you’ll get the most out of your sale.
1. Expert on Market Trends
2022 President of the National Association of Realtors (NAR), explains:
“During challenging and changing market conditions, one thing that’s calming and constant is the assurance that comes from a Realtor® being in your corner through every step of the home transaction. Consumers can rely on Realtors®’ unmatched work ethic, trusted guidance and objectivity to help manage the complexities associated with the home buying and selling process.”
We have the latest information about your local area. More importantly, we’ll know what all of this means for you so they’ll be able to help you make a decision based on trustworthy, data-bound information.
2. Set the Right Price for Your House
Home price appreciation has moderated this year. If you sell your house in Lapeer on your own, you may be more likely to overshoot your asking price because you’re not as aware of where prices are today. If you do, you run the risk of deterring buyers or seeing your house sit on the market for longer.
We provide an unbiased eye when helping you determine a price for your house. We’ll use a variety of factors, like the condition of your home and any upgrades you’ve made, and compare your house to recently sold homes in your area to find the best price for today’s market. These steps are key to making sure it’s set to move as quickly as possible.
3. Maximize Your Pool of Buyers
Since buyer demand has cooled this year, you’ll want to do what you can to help bring in more buyers. We have a large variety of tools at our disposal, such as social media followers, agency resources, and the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) to ensure your house gets in front of people looking to make a purchase in Lapeer. Investopedia explains why it’s risky to sell on your own without the network an agent provides:
“You don’t have relationships with clients, other agents, or a real estate agency to bring the largest pool of potential buyers to your home.”
4. Read and Understand the Fine Print
Today, more disclosures and regulations are mandatory when selling a house. That means the number of legal documents you’ll need to juggle is growing. NAR explains it like this:
“Selling a home typically requires a variety of forms, reports, disclosures, and other legal and financial documents. . . . Also, there’s a lot of jargon involved in a real estate transaction; you want to work with us who can speak the language.”
We know exactly what all the fine print means and how to work through it efficiently. We’ll help you review the documents and avoid any costly missteps that could occur if you try to handle them on your own.
5. A Skilled Negotiator
In today’s market, buyers are also regaining some negotiation power as bidding wars ease. If you sell without us, you’ll also be responsible for any back-and-forth. That means you’ll have to coordinate with:
The buyer, who wants the best deal possible
The buyer’s agent, who will use their expertise to advocate for the buyer
The inspection company, which works for the buyer and will almost always find concerns with the house
The appraiser, who assesses the property’s value to protect the lender
Instead of going toe-to-toe with all the above parties alone, lean on us. We’ll know what levers to pull, how to address everyone’s concerns, and when you may want to get a second opinion.
Don’t go at it alone. If you’re planning to sell your house this winter, contact us so you have an expert by your side to guide you in today’s market.
