Selling your home is one of the most important financial decisions you'll ever make, and choosing the right real estate company is crucial. PANTANO Real Estate is here to help you every step of the way. We’ll use our experience and keen insight into today’s dynamic real estate market to make sure you know what to expect and help you achieve maximum market value.
From determining the right price to navigating the process, here are some tips for selling your home and ways we can help.
Determining the right price is the key to achieving the highest return in the shortest amount of time. There are a lot of factors that determine a home’s market value, such as the sales prices of nearby homes that were recently sold or are pending sale, listing prices of similar homes on the market, and the condition and location of a home. To determine pricing, PANTANO Real Estate will carefully review the marketplace to provide a comparable market analysis that will explain what your home is worth, and why.
Marketing Your Home
PANTANO Real Estate will identify the target buyer for your property, and create a marketing strategy to sell your home by reaching this audience. We are members of and will list your home with the TREND Multiple Listing Service (MLS), as well as on consumer-friendly websites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Trulia, and countless others (including pantanorealestate.com). We will also expose your home to the market in local print media (including The News Journal) and prepare appropriate marketing materials for your home.
Showings are an inconvenient, yet necessary, part of the home-selling process. When your home is on the market, it has the potential to be shown at any time, so it's important to maintain a certain level of tidiness: Clear dishes from the sink, make the beds, put away the laundry, and vacuum and dust regularly. It's also a good idea not to be present during showings—it makes buyers uncomfortable to tour a home when the owners are in the next room, so for the sake of your sale, we recommend that you vacate your home for showings.
The inspection process can be stressful for sellers. We will help you navigate it with a well-thought-out initial plan, including solid disclosures and addressing minor repairs up-front, to ensure a successful transaction.
PANTANO Real Estate will be with you through every step of the selling process. We’ll consistently follow up with showing agents and potential buyers to learn their impressions of your home and help you interpret their feedback, monitor the marketplace and promptly advise you of any changes, and meet with you frequently to review showing and market activity. We’ll also present offers promptly and help you evaluate them, ensure that prospective buyers are pre-qualified to purchase your home, manage the buyer's earnest money, monitor the transaction once a contract is signed, and help you navigate through the inspection, mortgage, appraisal, and closing processes.
