Why, When, What and How. Those are the questions.
Why are you selling?
Are you downsizing, a growing family, first time home buyer, etc? Be as clear as possible on your intentions as they drastically impact your overall lifestyle. Knowing these things in advance will help us determine and meet your real estate goals.
When do you want to list your home?
You may have found your perfect dream home and want to get to market as soon as possible. Conversely, you may be just above a break even point and want to make sure you are selling at the best time for maximum returns. Maybe you want to change school districts but not in the middle of a school year. Talk to your agent during your appointment to discuss the best time to list your home based on your needs.
What are the current market conditions?
Market conditions do not quite change with a flip of a switch, but they sure can change quickly. Over the past few years, we have seen markets go from sellers offering incentives such as free flat screen TVs or having to throw in seller’s concessions to get an offer to receiving offers over asking price and sometimes multiple offers on one home. The J2 Realty Group studies markets and researches your market before listing your home to help set reasonable expectations and goals. What is occurring in Farmington Hills may be different than Rochester Hills. The luxury market may be different from the “first time home buyer’s” market. Let the team at J2 help you understand the market conditions for your market.
How are my finances affected?
Selling your home provides a huge financial commitment. The net proceeds of your sale involve things from title & transfer tax fees to commissions and of course your current mortgage payoff. Let a professional Realtor from J2 Realty Group help determine that figure for you and discuss what you may want to do with those proceeds.
