SELLING YOUR COLORADO PROPERTY
You made a great investment in your Colorado property, and whether you have owned it for just a few months, or for years or even decades, we consider it our goal to make sure that you sell it quickly, and for the highest profit possible. We don’t stop there, though…we also strive to provide West + Main clients with a smooth transaction, as little hassle as possible, and a seamless process with transparent and constant communication.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
Honest advice. From preparing your home for sale to handing over the keys to the property’s new owners, we are here at every step, bump, and curve in the journey.
The West + Main Selling Strategy:
PREPARE YOUR PROPERTY FOR SALE
You might keep your home looking like a designer showroom every day…if that’s the case, great! Let’s put a sign in the yard and let the showings begin!
But, if you’re like most of the people that we work with, you have a little work to do first.
This might involve:
• decluttering + depersonalizing
• minor touchups
• small repairs
• deep cleaning
and, in some cases, it might even mean some cosmetic upgrades or even remodeling.
Every situation is different, and depending on your Real Estate goals, it might take a few days or even weeks to get your house ready, and that’s totally ok with us. We have a large network of contractors and professionals who have done a great job for our clients and our agents. If you need a recommendation or referral for a plumber, electrician, painter, handyman, etc, just let us know, we will be happy to make an introduction or pass along their information.
NEED TO SELL AS-IS, QUICKLY, OR EVEN OFF-MARKET? WE CAN HELP WITH THAT AS WELL.
We are always happy to create a Comparative Market Analysis for your property so that you will have an idea of where you stand financially. We will also generate an Estimated Net Sheet so that you can see every line item and cost involved, as well as your potential bottom line profit. Pricing is another important factor.
PRICING + POSITIONING YOUR PROPERTY
One thing we say over and over again is “Don’t trust the zestimate.” Even though Zillow, Trulia and other Real Estate marketing platforms might pop out a number for your property, it’s always better to have a local professional tour your home, consider all of the factors involved, and run a detailed analysis in order to make sure your home is perfectly positioned for the market.
Speaking of positioning…did you know that there are very drastic differences in numbers of showings, multiple offer potential, and even escrow timelines depending on which day and week you choose to list your Colorado property? We keep a close eye on the statistics, annual histories, and many other factors in order to make sure that your house hits the market at exactly the right time - and it’s not the same for every type of home, neighborhood, or city! Listing at the non-optimal time can cost you thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars in potential profit.
Our in-house marketing department is a team of seasoned professionals who are passionate about making sure your home’s story is seen + heard by potential homebuyers. From beautiful flyers to expertly crafted property descriptions and photos, our goal is to target your property’s audience with attention-catching materials that get doors unlocked. This might include targeted online advertising, print materials, highlighted exposure in our widely distributed newsletters, feature placement on our blog + website, and more. Every home’s story is special + unique…we can’t wait to tell yours.
The best contract for your situation might not always be the highest price…we will help you consider all of the factors involved so that you not only go under contract but also make it to the closing table. This might include considering the best dates + deadlines for your timeline, as well as provisions like waived inspections or offers that include appraisal gap coverage. If you need to find a replacement property or would like to have the option to rent your home back for a few days or even weeks after closing, that is also something that we consider when reviewing and negotiating offers to purchase your home.
