Let Hamstead Realty partner with you every step of the way. We will utilize our three pillars of focused marketing, creative staging and strategic pricing to find you a qualified buyer and get to a smooth closing as quickly as possible.
Let's chat about what we can do for you.
Many factors go into determining a marketable listing price - location, past sold properties, improvements, neighborhood amenities, current buyer trends and even the condition of your home. We will not confuse active listings with past sold comparable's. Recent sold's provide the true market value.
HR is committed to detail and excellence.
We know that Buyers are looking for the best, so a home for sale can easily slip through the cracks if it's not in pristine condition. We work closely with our seller's to help with preparing their home for maximum appeal to a variety of potential and qualified buyers. We can help with staging to get your home noticed and sold.
I'm sure you have questions and thoughts about the real estate process. I'd love to talk with you about what you've read here and help you on the path to selling your home.
A lot of sellers can become anxious over the thought of having to clear out and fix up their home. Sometimes this can prevent them from even getting it on the market. But in most cases, there’s no need to worry. Most of the time there’s much less to do than a homeowner would think. So before spending time and money upgrading your home or even getting discouraged let us come take a look. You just might be positively surprised by how just a few changes can make a big difference.
The most accurate listing price for your own home will depend on its size, neighborhood, updates and upgrades as well as a lot of other factors. Sometimes a seller can mentally inflate their home’s positives and ignore the flaws that a buyer might pick up on quickly. It's important to look at the prices of similarly sized homes that have recently sold in your area— or “comps". Then, price your place strategically. Pricing too high can cause the property to sit on the market for too long, resulting in a "stale" listing. Pricing a little lower in a hot sellers market can generate multiple bids that could ultimately end up above your listing price. So, do your homework and let us help you determine a price that feels right, is realistic and will get your home sold for the most amount of money in the shortest time.
On average, a staged home sells 88% faster—and for 20% more money—than a home that’s left as is. The reason it works, of course, is it gives buyers a “stage” onto which they can play out their home-owner dreams and visualize themselves living in your home. It's important to allow the would-be homeowners to see a blank canvas that they can mentally fill with their loved ones and their own belongings.
One of the most common questions from home sellers is in regards to the real estate marketing strategies real estate agents use to sell homes.
A home that is priced properly and given maximum exposure should sell in a very short amount of time and for top dollar. Some of the top real estate marketing strategies that HR will use to sell your home are -
You will be filling out a "Seller's Disclosure" which will require you to reveal any issues or repairs with the house and will be attached as part of the contract. Please be thorough on every question. The most important thing is to be truthful. We can resolve almost every issue. As we review your property and as I see things that I have questions about, we can discuss those together.
Even in a slow market, price and condition are the two most important factors in selling a home. If a home is not getting the activity it needs in order to sell it is probably because it is overpriced for the market. If this happens, we should discuss the following options below -
Another frequently asked question from home sellers is how much it will cost to sell a home. There are expenses that the buyer will have that the seller will not and vice versa. In addition to any repairs or updates as well as moving costs, typical closing expenses for home sellers include the abstract and title search, instrument survey, real estate commissions, and transfer taxes which also are known as revenue stamps. Don't forget to factor in any agreed upon additional seller contributions such as a Home Warranty, possible Capital Gains tax or additional funds towards your buyer's closing costs.

"Recently, I sat at the closing table, along side my realtor, Brenda Hamstead, and handed over the keys to the home I have lived in since 2008 to an excited couple who, I'm sure, have happily settled in to their new home and community. Brenda listened to my needs and was there for me from Listing to Close. She personally helped me stage my furniture, cleaned, swept, and spent an entire Saturday in the yard with me trimming bushes and raking leaves. When it came time for negotiations she was a hard hitter. When an offer came our way she intelligently argued the value of my home and led me through the Due Diligence process with clarity and a calming assurance."
