Selling Your Home

There are many reasons people decide to sell their home. Whatever the motivation, the goal is always the same:

Sell the home for top dollar.

The way we arrive at a successful sale is by implementing our streamlined process to market your well priced home to as many buyers as possible using reliable avenues and methods. Here is what you can expect when you decide to list your home for sale with REALTOR® Erick Salgado and his team:

Analysis

A careful and thoughtful analysis of your home and the local market is essential to a successful home sale. Studying recent sales of similar properties in your area gives us the knowledge to arrive at the right price for your home. There are many variables that can effect a home’s value and marketability. Our analysis lays the ground work for a successful home sale.

Strategy

The path for every successful home sale is different. Understanding your goals, motivations, timelines, and future plans all play a part on how we implement our strategy to market and sell your home. Do you need to sell the home quickly? Do you need to stay in the home for a while after selling? Are you seeking to defer your taxes on your sale proceeds on your investment property? Whatever the case, we can work together to make the sale work for your life and goals.

Marketing

Effective marketing is key to reaching the greatest audience possible and finding the right buyer. We begin by placing your home in the best light possible with thoughtful home preparation & professional photography. We use these photographs and well crafted descriptions to market your home on the Multiple Listing System (MLS) used by all real estate professionals. This information is syndicated to hundreds of websites worldwide including Zillow, Realtor.com, Redfin, Trulia, and many others. We also provide a video walk through of your home on Zillow to improve its visibility among similar homes for sale. A traditional “For Sale” sign is also a very simple yet powerful way we let the neighborhood know that your home is for sale. Hosting open houses also generate interest by allowing buyers to come and see your home freely. These marketing techniques have proven successful for our clients time and time again. Yet, we are always keeping up to date with latest real estate marketing trends and methods to better serve our clients.

Transaction Management

Every home successful home sale is backed by our team of real estate professionals to ensure that we don’t miss a beat. Escrow, Lenders, Title, and clients interact for a concentrated period of time during a transaction. Effective communication and coordination is fundamental to a successful home sale. Every transaction has a dedicated Transaction Coordinator to facilitate the gathering of information, signing of documents, and following up on contractual items. From accepting an offer up to the close of escrow, we take pride in making our transactions as smooth as possible for our clients.

Next Steps

Your home is sold! What now? There are many paths that one can take after the sale of their home or investment property. Upsizing or downsizing to a new home? Perhaps you are interested in deferring capital gains tax by conducting a 1031 exchange under the IRS tax code. Maybe you are looking to transfer your tax basis under prop 60/90.  Whatever the case, we can help you achieve your next steps with same level of quality service we are known for.
