Should I list my house with a REALTOR® or Sell It on My Own?

The decision to enlist the help of a REALTOR® or to go the For-Sale-By-Owner (or "FSBO") route is entirely up to you. To help you make that decision, here’s an overview of the services that Red Arrow Real Estate can provide for you:
  • As experienced real estate professionals in your area, we'll help you set a fair price for your home so that you receive a good return on your investment.
  • We'll do our best to ensure that your home sells in a reasonable time frame.
  • Red Arrow will promote your home to other agents in the area and will list your home on key Internet home sites so that buyers and real estate agents worldwide have access to information about your home. In addition, we'll also list your home on our own Web site, which is promoted on the Internet and locally in multiple print media.
  • We'll design, place and pay for advertising in print media specifically known to attract qualified buyers.
In the end, you'll need to decide whether working with a REALTOR® or selling your home yourself is the best choice for you, but we hope that you'll choose Red Arrow as your partner in the property-selling process.

How can Red Arrow Real Estate help me sell my home?

In addition to providing you with a free Comparative Market Analysis, we screen prospective buyers carefully to ensure that they can afford to purchase your home and can obtain the necessary financing. We negotiate with qualified buyers on your behalf so that everyone is satisfied with the transaction.

Also, we handle the often-overwhelming details of the sale including ordering property inspections, opening escrow, facilitating paper work, and complying with legal restrictions.

Because we're familiar with what prospective buyers in this area are looking for, we can evaluate your home's unique features and highlight them in the listing information.

How can I be sure that my home is priced appropriately?

Your home is a major investment. When you decide to sell, it's important to do your homework before you set a price for it. Price your home too high, and either it won't sell or it will remain on the market for a long time, which is often a red flag for buyers. Price your home too low, and you won't receive the true value from your investment.

We’ll be happy to provide you with a free Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) of your area with no obligation on your part. Reviewing a CMA is the first step when you're ready to sell your home; however, CMA information doesn't always tell the whole story about a property -- one home might have extensive upgrades, which would command a higher-than-usual price; another home might lack many of the features of your home and would sell for less than what you can expect from the sale of your home.

Because we specialize in homes in the tri-city area, we're familiar with the details of each home that is listed or that sold -- and we'll be happy to share that information with you without obligation.

What can I do to ensure that prospective buyers have a good first impression of my home?

"Make a good first impression" is a well-worn cliché, but when it comes to selling your home, that first impression is everything. Experience has taught us that homes in good, clean condition sell faster and for higher prices than homes that need cleaning or repairs. Look at your home through a prospective buyer's eyes.

Initially, prospective buyers of your home will be judging its "curb appeal" -- that crucial first impression of the exterior of the house when they arrive at your door. Be sure that the landscaping is well maintained; a lawn that needs mowing or flower beds that are overrun with weeds may remind prospective buyers how tedious gardening can be or may make them question how much it will cost to repair or replace the existing landscaping.

Another way to improve curb appeal is to paint the outside of your home if it needs it; sometimes simply painting the trim will give the house a fresh look.

Check for cracks and crumbling pavement in your driveway and walkways, and clear your yard of clutter; many prospective buyers view outside clutter as a sign of cramped conditions or lack of storage inside the house.

If prospective buyers like the way your home "shows" from the outside, chances are they'll want to see the inside next -- and you'll have another chance for a good first impression. Does your home have a clean, fresh scent, or have pet odors or smoke permeated the carpet and drapes? Clean every room (especially the kitchen and bathrooms), and remove any clutter to make the house seem larger and brighter. If counters are piled high with papers and cupboards are overflowing, that important first impression won't be a positive one.

A feeling of spaciousness in a home is a "must have" for many prospective buyers. If you have large pieces of furniture that overwhelm a room or items that aren't used frequently, consider renting a storage locker while your home is on the market.

Be sure that appliances and plumbing fixtures are in good working order. Prospective buyers will flush toilets, turn on faucets, and check areas around tubs and showers for signs of disrepair or leaks.

Create an inviting atmosphere for your prospective buyers by placing vases of fresh flowers throughout the house, lighting scented candles, or, if the weather is cold and damp, burn wood in the fireplace.
