Following these steps will help you prepare so you can get organized and sell your home for the best price possible.​​​​​​​


Step 1: Choose the right Real Estate Professionals

Whether it is selecting the right asking price, preparing your home for sale, negotiating the deal, going through the inspection, appraisal, financing and title processes, and ultimately closing the deal, Melanie and Noah work with some of the best professionals in the area and stay with you through the entire process in order to assure you the smoothest, least stressful experience possible. They can even help with moving services, estate sale needs and more.

Why Melanie and Noah?

Real estate transactions involve one of the biggest financial investments most people experience in their lifetime. Transactions today usually exceed $100,000. If you had a $100,000 income tax problem, would you attempt to deal with it without the help of a CPA? If you had a $100,000 legal question, would you deal with it without the help of an attorney? Considering the small upside cost and the large downside risk, it would be crazy to consider a deal in real estate without the professional assistance of Melanie and Noah.

If you are selling your home, Melanie and Noah:

Melanie and Noah can provide market information and the price, financing, terms, and condition of competing properties. These are key factors in getting your property sold at the best price, quickly, and with minimum hassle.

Melanie and Noah can recommend repairs or cosmetic work that will significantly enhance the marketability of your property. They will market your property to other real estate agents and the public. In most markets over 50% of real estate sales are cooperative sales; that is, a real estate agent other than yours brings in the buyer. Melanie and Noah act as the marketing coordinators, disbursing information about your property to other real estate agents through the Multiple Listing Service and to the public through their extensive use of online advertising and presence.

There is a misconception that advertising sells real estate. The National Association of Realtor’s studies shows that 82% of real estate sales are from sources other than advertising like personal referrals, company reputation, and yard signs. Melanie and Noah have access to these sources and more. Also, when a property is marketed with the help of Melanie and Noah, you do not have to allow strangers into your home. Prospects will generally be prescreened and accompanied through your property by licensed agents.

This initial agreement is only the beginning of a process of appraisals, inspections and financing – a lot of possible pitfalls. Melanie and Noah will write a legally binding, win-win agreement that will be more likely to make it through the process.

Between the initial sales agreement and closing, questions may arise. For example, unexpected repairs are required to obtain financing or a cloud in the title is discovered. The required paperwork alone is overwhelming for most sellers. Melanie and Noah are the best agents to objectively help you resolve these issues and move the transaction to closing.
