Making or receiving an offer for a home is a true balancing act. If you go too high you lose money on your investment, but if you are too low you can lose money, or the opportunity to own the home of your dreams.
It has taken me years but I’ve developed a 6th sense about the Goldilocks Principle—which states that an offer must fall within certain margins of expectations and reality, avoiding extremes, to win the deal and make a sound investment.
It isn’t just a spidey sense that helps me price my offers and sign-backs right—it is also thorough market research and primal negotiation skills. To put my research skills, negotiation skills and 6th sense to work for you—simply give me a call today.
Types of Offers to Navigate in Real Estate:
- Firm offers
- Conditional offers, including those conditional-on-financing
- Offer acceptance
Home Improvements to Build your Home’s Value
There are a number of small, quick improvements you can make to your home to add thousands—to tens of thousands—of dollars in value to the listing price of your home. This includes…
- Staging your home for a quick sale
- Improving the exterior of your home by mowing the lawn, weeding gardens, cleaning stains off your driveway, touching up rough paint jobs, trimming bushes and other curb-appealing improving tasks
- Making simple repairs and maintenance, including fixing: squeaky doors, chipped bath tubs and other tiles, leaky taps, cracked plaster, seals, painting, etc.
- Cleaning, cleaning, cleaning
- Decluttering and depersonalizing
If you’re unsure how to do any of the above—just give me a call and I’ll give you all the top staging and home-improvement that I’ve collected over the years (and are proven value-adders!).
