Selling your Outer Banks home is a big decision and I am here to help. Selling real estate is a lot less stressful when you are informed about what is going on in our local Outer Banks real estate market and know exactly what to expect during the time your Outer Banks home is listed for sale. I make selling your Outer Banks home pretty stress-free. I'm an experienced Outer Banks agent with excellent communication skills and I believe if you are hiring me to sell your home then I owe it to you to provide your home with dynamic, professional marketing worthy of your property.
Today’s real estate agents are only as good as their marketing plan. The days of your friendly Outer Banks real estate agent listing a home for sale, putting it into the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), joyfully placing a sign in the front yard, then waiting for the property to sell are long gone!
In order to successfully sell real estate in today’s resort market, a real estate agent needs to have a dynamic marketing plan that covers online, offline and print marketing channels. Your home needs to be “packaged” to sell to other Outer Banks agents so they will show your home to their buyer clients just as much as it needs to be “showcased” to prospective buyers on-line, in print and on-site. The last thing we want is someone to get all the way to your home and then decide not to go in because the yard wasn’t maintained or to walk through your home and love everything about it except for that “weird” smell. When it comes to selling, the big issue is price but it’s the little issues that make the difference between you getting that price and a buyer choosing to give that price to competing home.
I love real estate on the Outer Banks and I'm very good at what I do. I walk through homes for sale every chance I get and I can walk through your home and tell you where it fits in the current mix of homes for sale and provide you with a suggested asking price based on properties in your Outer Banks subdivision that have recently sold. However, it isn’t my job to determine your asking price. Only a seller can determine asking price because only you know your unique financial situation.
If you happen to be upside-down in that you owe more to your lender than your home is currently worth, I can help you with that. I have been certified as a Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource by the National Association of Realtors. I've helped many clients, both buyers and sellers, successfully negotiate short sales with their lenders. I can also refer you to local attorneys with short sale, foreclosure and bankruptcy experience if you believe you need legal advice.
A willing seller, a willing buyer and lender willing to loan money to a buyer determine market value.
As a real estate professional, it is my job to make sure you receive the most comprehensive market information available so you can make an informed decision about selling your Outer Banks property.The easiest way for you to get the information you need is to E-mail me and I’ll send you a list of what has recently sold in your subdivision as well as what is currently for sale so you can see the other homes your home will be competing against for today’s buyers. I’ll also send properties that are currently under-contract in your neighborhood and overall information about the 2015 market compared to 2014.
In addition, you will receive a monthly Outer Banks real estate market report with detailed analysis and breakdown so that you can continue to monitor sales activity in your Outer Banks neighborhood.
