  5. 5. What people are saying about us “I am MORE than happy with Melissa and her team as my real estate agents. I am not the easiest person in the world to please and it took me over a year to find that just right home, and they worked very patiently with me. When we finally started the process of the purchase I found them to be intelligent, thorough and informative. They left no stone unturned. On the day of the closing they brought something to my attention I was not even aware of........ but not to worry they had taken care of it. It was most certainly extra work on their part, and I could only conclude they had gone above and beyond the call of duty. They certainly seems to take pride in what they do. I am a sales manager in my field and I would hire a Melissa and her team any day...... any day. Nick Sepulvado (happy home owner) Wylie, Texas” Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity Nick Sepulvado “Melissa is a wonderful real estate agent. She assisted my fiancé and I in viewing homes during our vacation in Dallas. She was very courteous, patient and informative about the area, loan process and first time home buyer programs. I truly recommend her services.” Top qualities: Personable, Expert, High Integrity Emmanuel Jackson “Melissa & her team are dedicated and very knowledgeable real estate agents that sold our home in less than 2 weeks in a depressed market. Their advice and expertise on staging and preparing our home for listing proved to be priceless.” Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Expert Jenna Anaya Melissa Hailey 214-418-0180 “We hired Melissa & her team to sell our house and they sold it in a depressed market for more than the asking price! They are an excellent realtor team. It's all business with Melissa & her team. They did not get offended when we didn't understand things, and they "went to bat" for us when we needed them to. If you think you can't afford a realtor, you can't afford not to hire Melissa & her team!” Top qualities: Personable, Expert, On Time Rebecca Waldo MENU

  8. 8. PREPARING YOUR HOME With buyers, the first impression counts! A small investment in time and money will give your home an edge over other listings in the area when the time comes to show it to a prospective buyer. Here are more suggestions that will help you get top market value: Ask a "buyer" Ask a friend to walk through your home like a buyer would. Get their opinion. Is it inviting, clean and well maintained? Make any changes they suggest. www.NorthTexasTopTeam.com Melissa Hailey 214-418-0180 Freshen Up – The First Impression Clean and tidy entrance. Empty all trash, recycle bins, etc. Stop smoking in the house. Bathe pets and clean out litter boxes. Use baking soda boxes in smell-prone areas. Place flowers, potpourri or air fresheners around the house. The Buying Atmosphere Be absent during showings. Turn on all lights. Open drapes during daytime. Keep pets outdoors or in kennel. Play quiet background music. MENU
  9. 9. Pricing Your Property The higher a property is priced above realistic market value, the more time it will take to sell and the less interest it will attract. If a property fails to appraise at fair market value, it will either force the buyer to make up the difference in cash or cause the sale to fall through. Melissa Hailey 214-418-0180 If your property is priced right, more buyers will be interested when it first hits the market. MENU Since mortgages are based on fair market value, not the sale price, more buyers will be able to consider your property when it is priced competitively.
  10. 10. Your Next Steps •Locate a copy of your existing Survey if possible. A survey looks like a plat map of your particular property and would have been provided to you when you purchased the home. It is likely with your home purchase paperwork. •Complete a Seller Disclosure Form, which is required by Texas Real Estate Law. We will provide a copy of this to you for completion. •Locate your mortgage information (bank name, phone, and your account number) •Have an extra key available to your home. •Meet with the North Texas Top Team, Realtors to complete the paperwork and begin marketing your home! Melissa Hailey 214-418-0180 •Locate your Home Owner Association information if needed (name, phone, when & amount of dues) MENU
