Pricing in the current Richmond Virginia Real Estate market?

Price is one of the most significant factors potential buyers consider when looking at a property. You do not want your valuable investment to be either under-priced or over-priced – but how do you know what is appropriate? How can you tell what the market will respond to? Our experience and local knowledge of the Richmond Virginia Real Estate market will help you determine the optimum price to list your property. If selling your property is not an option due to the market, then we also offer a wide range of Leasing and Property Management Services as well as Short Sales services. We will also:

  • Prepare and review an up-to-date Comparable Market Analysis. This will help determine a pricing strategy for your property.
  • We will discuss the option of inspecting, staging or upgrading your property prior to marketing and review the impact they have on pricing.
  • Provide you with a Seller’s Net Sheet that projects the approximate costs of sale.
  • Outline various options and make recommendations based on market conditions and your personal situation.
  • Review our unique and extremely effective Integrated Marketing Campaign

Preparing Your Property for Market

First impressions count. Before inviting buyers into your property, you’ll want to be sure you’ve done everything to make it as attractive as possible. There are many ways to improve your chances of a sale and its important to maximize the best options you have available. We will:

  • Offer ideas for how to present your property. This may include recommendations for cosmetic changes such as painting, clearing the yard, and arranging the best way to “stage” your property for a visit from potential buyers.
  • Advise you as to whether to obtain a professional inspection prior to placing your property on the market. An inspection generally presents a clear picture of the physical condition of the property and allows us to anticipate issues that may arise and become a negotiating point during the transaction.
  • Discuss the option of purchasing a one-year property protection warranty which is transferred to the buyer.

Virginia Real Estate market by closed transactions. We sell over 50 homes a year and we strive to improve our client’s lives as well as their bottom lines. We consistently win awards for selling from the Richmond Association of Realtors. We also received a very select distinction (only 20 Realtors in the entire State!) by the Virginia Association of Realtors. Whether you are selling your first home, historic property,  an investment property, or doing a short sale, we work hard for all of our clients. When it comes to Richmond Virginia real estate no one matches the one-on-one focus that we give our clients. We also offer Property Management Services and specialize in the Short Sales process.

A Different Approach | Step by Step

First, we will conduct a preliminary interview and consultation to understand your goals, your timetable and any special circumstances you may have. This first interview is typically done in our office, so we can have access to internet data, printing and copying. In this first meeting we will cover a wide range of topics including: your financial situation, basic Richmond Virginia Real Estate Forms and documents and answer any questions you may have about the Home Selling process. We will also review the most recent Sales Data for the Richmond Virginia Real Estate market. By listening carefully to your needs, we pledge to enhance your experience as a seller and to identify the most effective strategies for selling your property.

On-Site Property Visit

Once we have completed the initial consultation, we will conduct an on-site visit to your property.  We will create a detailed property report of all the characteristics, features and specifications of your property. This will include verifying and documenting things like: size and square footage, number and type of rooms, amenities, utilities, school districts, building materials, upgrades, land and lot features, zoning and any other data about the property. Having detailed and accurate data on the property enhances the marketability for today’s savvy buyers. Many agents simply put your property in the MLS and hope that someone calls. We have a very different approach. We leverage ALL of the features and attributes of your home and try to identify the perfect buyer for your property. This way our marketing is targeted to a group of buyers who is most likely to want your property and pay top dollar for it.

Negotiating the Sale

Some people enjoy negotiation, others dread it. Either way, when it comes to selling your property it is important to have a capable and diligent negotiator on your side. Our experience and savvy has proven highly successful.  We will:

  • Discuss various approaches and recommend what we consider to be the best option for each circumstance.
  • Assist in negotiating the best price and terms for your property.
  • Assist in evaluating the qualifications of any buyer that makes an offer on your property.
  • Assist you in reviewing the conditions in the offer and their potential impact on the transaction.
  • Revise the Seller’s Net Sheet and calculate net proceeds based on the negotiated sales price.
  • Help you make informed decisions.

Escrow – Contract to Closing of Sale

During this time (typically between 30 and 60 days), Our team will be there to assist you in handling crucial details so that deadlines are met in order to bring your transaction to a smooth, successful close. We will:

  • Verify that escrow has been established, deliver a real time calendar of events, and monitor contingency periods and inspections.
  • Attend inspections as practical or at your request.
  • Confirm the preliminary title search.
  • To the extent possible, monitor the purchaser’ loan to review that the process is running smoothly.
  • Provide you with timely updates on the status of the closing process.
  • Provide you with copies of all documents executed by both parties which are received by me.

Stay in Touch, Be a Source for Referrals

Once the sales process is complete we look forward to the relationship just beginning. We will stay in touch and offer you our contacts or advise for any home related issue.
