Experience and Knowing the Market Makes all the Difference
The Gamache family has been buying and selling real estate in the Tri-Valley for decades and has seen the transformation in the Tri-Valley from rural country to suburban life. Knowing the shifts and trends in the market enables The Gamache Team to use insight and experience to price homes right to sell without sitting on the market.
When homes sit on the market for too long, buyers get the impression that something is “wrong” with the home and quickly lose interest. Sellers, expecting a quick sale at Top Dollar, often get frustrated, and either panic, take the home off the market, or have to settle for less than they expected.
When a home is marketed to sell, the results are pleasing to both buyers and sellers.
What Makes a House Ready to Sell?
A good realtor knows that a house often needs to be prepped for sale. Preparation can take any form, including repainting the interior or exterior, updating the hardware, cleaning the side yards, purging overcrowded rooms, redoing floors, putting in new carpet, creating a great curb appeal with fresh landscape, removing personal items that distract buyers, or staging the home to draw interest and attention.
According to industry analysts, a home that is professionally prepped and staged sells more quickly and for more money. When a homeowner trusts his or her Realtor to prep the home to attract the most attention and the most buyers, the results show in dollars in their pockets.
Buyers are more likely to purchase a home that they can envision as their own without the clutter and reminders of the former homeowner.
Pricing a Home to Sell in the Tri-Valley Area
Selling a home can be an emotional decision. Too often, sellers are inexperienced at pricing a home to sell and are adamant that they know the price at which to list their home.
However, according to Zillow, the listing price is correlated to how long the house sits on the market. Whether the house is priced aggressively to sell or overpriced, the wrong price causes a longer delay in home sales.
