  11. 11. Pricing and Your Experience "Communication is Paramount to a Successful Relationship" Pricing Ahead of the Market Seller’s Market In a market with rising home values, if a seller wants a price that’s ahead of the market, the market may go up enough to make that price attractive for buyers. Time can cure some mistakes and make people look smart. Buyer’s Market If sellers fall behind a market with falling home values, they can end up chasing the market down, because home values are always falling faster than their price reductions. The Morton Team
  12. 12. Strategic Pricing Pricing your property competitively will generate the most activity from agents and buyers. Pricing your property too high may make it necessary to drop the price below market value to compete with new, well-priced listings If you want to compete, be competitive. • The buying market has a short attention span. • Pricing your home right the first time is key. • Proper pricing attracts buyers. • An overpriced house will not sell. • We want to generate offers before the market moves on to newer listings. The Morton Team
  13. 13. Pricing Misconceptions It is very important to price your property at competitive market value when we finalize the listing agreement. The value of your property is determined by what a buyer is willing to pay and a seller is willing to accept in today’s market. Buyers make their pricing decision based on comparing your property to other properties SOLD in your area. Historically, your first offer is usually your best. We are lucky we live in a desirable place that is attractive to many buyers. Properties are selling and there are many active buyers. It is our experience, the most effective strategy to maximize your home's sale price is to price within 10% of where we find value. Placing your property for sale with a high price, expecting to negotiate to a higher than market value sale price, is not today's reality. Overpricing your home results in a lack of showings and minimal dialogue with buyers. Our ultimate goal with your marketing plan is to create an engaging communication with the buying community to maximize your sale price. By focusing on showcasing your home in the best manner possible and making your first impression a great one, we remove the question marks surrounding marketing. Presentation, Promotion and Price are all equally important in your marketing campaign. In 2013 properties priced where there was no need for price reduction were on the market for 50% less time than homes which did not require a price reduction. Homes priced accurately from the start also sold at an average of 95.5% of asking price. Homes requiring a price reduction sold for an average of 93.7% of their final asking price and 81.36% of their original price. The Morton Team
  14. 14. Preparing Your Home for Sale Did you know well-placed furniture can open up rooms and make them seem larger than they are? Or that opening drapes and blinds and turning on all lights make a room seem bright and cheery? It's a fact: acquiring the highest market value and elevating your home above others in the same price range often comes down to first impressions. Here are some inexpensive ways to maximize your home's appeal: Exterior • Keep the grass freshly cut. • Remove all yard clutter. • Apply fresh paint to wooden fences. • Paint the front door. • Weed and apply fresh mulch to garden beds. • Clean windows inside and out. • Wash or paint home’s exterior. • Tighten and clean all door handles. • Ensure gutters and downspouts are firmly attached. Interior • Remove excessive wall hangings, furniture and knickknacks (consider a temporary self-storage unit). • Clean or paint walls and ceilings. • Shampoo carpets. • Clean and organize cabinets and closets. • Repair all plumbing leaks, including faucets and drain traps. • Clean all light fixtures. For Showings • Turn on all the lights. • Open drapes in the daytime. • Keep pets secured outdoors. • Play quiet background music. • Light the fireplace (if seasonally appropriate). • Infuse home with a comforting scent like apple spice or vanilla. • Vacate the property while it is being shown. The Morton Team
  15. 15. Additional: • Warranties-Do you still have a warranty on your home? What is the warranty on your roof and A/C? What about appliance warranties? • Floor plans, if you have any, are a great addition to the documents tab of the MLS and will help prospective buyers visualize the layout • Disclosures-We will have your fill out your Seller Disclosure before listing so that we have this on hand at all times when prospective buyers call with questions. • HOA Documentation-We will get your CC&R's from the title company and include them on the MLS as well, and any additional info you may have for us • Permits-If you have made any additions to the home, it is a good idea to keep these handy. Once we have a contract both the lender and they buyer will want copies Closing: • A few items to bring to the closing House Keys Garage Door Openers Picture ID • The closing agent will look over the purchase contract and identify what payments are owed and by whom; prepare documents for the closing; conduct the closing; make sure taxes, title searches, real estate commissions and other closing costs are paid; ensure that the buyer's title is recorded; and ensure that you receive any monies due to you. Sellers commonly pay the following at closing: Mortgage balance and prepayment penalties, if applicable Other claims against your property, such as unpaid property taxes Unpaid special assessments on your property Document stamps (or taxes) on the deed Real estate commission Doc stamps on deed ($0.70 per $100) Legal fee or title insurance premium • After the closing, make sure you keep the following for tax purposes: Copies of all closing documents All home improvement receipts on the home you sold The Morton Team
