So You Want To Sell Your Home

by Donna McCampbell


Did you know the best chance for selling your property is within the first seven weeks? It's true.

Studies show that the longer a property stays on the market, the less the seller will net upon the sale. It is very important to price your property at a competitive market value at the signing of your listing contract. The market is so competitive that even over-pricing by a few thousand dollars could mean that your house will not sell.

An overpriced home can minimize offers, lower agents response, limit the number of qualified buyers, reduce showings, reduce prospects, limit financing, waste advertising dollars, and most importantly, net less for the seller! When you are ready, contact me today for a personal market value analysis of your home. No hassles or obligation - just honest advice on how to get top dollar for your home!

Insulation

by Donna McCampbell


Urea formaldehyde was a form of insulation added to homes several years ago. It was a type of liquid foam sprayed into walls in older homes that weren't built with wall insulation at the time. The liquid foam found its way into the wall's nooks and dried, forming a good insulator. Problems seemed to come right after the insulation - many people got sick from the formaldehyde part of the product, and they continued to do so for many years afterwards. In some cases the walls were taken apart, and the insulation was removed.

Current studies indicate that after several years the problem seemed to go away. There is an extensive site dedicated to this issue from the EPA, available here. Knowing the facts can help you make an informed decision when you are ready to make an offer.

Pricing Strategy to Sell Your Home

by Donna McCampbell

soldSellers, you have an excellent opportunity to sell your home this season -- if you have the right pricing strategy in place from the start! Studies show that the longer a property stays on the market, the less the seller will net upon the sale.

It is very important to price your property at a competitive market value at the signing of your listing contract. In some places, the market is so competitive that even over-pricing by a few thousand dollars could mean that your house will not sell. And in some of today's particularly hot markets where we're seeing bidding wars, you still want to work with your agent to set the right starting price from the outset to give yourself every advantage.

An Overpriced Home:
· Minimizes offers
· Decreases agents response
· Limits qualified buyers
· Decreases showings
· Decreases prospects
· Limits financing
· Wastes advertising dollars
· Nets less for the seller
