YOUR HOME FREE
Everyone want the best possible price and terms when selling and selling houses. Several factors, including market conditions and interest rates, will determine how much you can get for your home. The idea is to get the maximum price and the best terms during the window of time when your home is on the market.
In other words, buying and selling houses is part science, part marketing, part negotiation and part art. Unlike math where 2 + 2 always equals 4, in Dallas real estate there is no certain conclusion. All transactions are different, and because of this, you should do as much as possible to prepare your home for sale and engage the REALTOR® you feel is best able to sell your home.
What is Your Home or Prospective Home Actually Worth?
What homes are worth boils down to “what the market says it’s worth.” A home “value” also depends on who you ask: there’s the price owners would like to get, the price buyers would like to offer and the point of agreement between buyer and seller that actually results in a sale.
In considering home values, several factors are important:
How Do You Set a Listing Price?
Because all transactions are unique there is price flexibility in the marketplace. The amount of flexibility depends on local conditions.
For example: you’re selling a townhouse and there have been five recent sales of the same model townhouse and prices ranged from $200,000 to $210,000. You now have an idea of how your home might be priced. In a strong market perhaps you can ask for $210,000 or a little more. If the market has slowed, $210,000 may be a reasonable asking price, but perhaps more than you could get for a final sale price.
Here’s another scenario: you live in a community of Victorian-style homes, most of which were built in the 1920s. All the homes are different in terms of size, condition, modernization, style and features. In such a neighborhood, an average sale price is just a statistic without much practical meaning. On a single block one home may sell for $400,000 while another is priced at more than $1 million. The average price may be outrageously high for one home and staggeringly low for another.
Knowing what listing price to set for your home can be difficult. That is why it is valuable to work with a REALTOR®. Because experienced REALTORS® have handled many transactions, they’re familiar with the terms and conditions that go into buying and selling houses, not just published sale prices that may not reflect various premiums, discounts, terms, conditions and adjustments. And, importantly, REALTORS® know of the latest sale prices among competing houses and can offer that information to the home seller.
As a buyer and seller of real estate I have used Bill Nelson "Your Home Free" on all property sales and purchasing. Mr. Nelson and his team have expertise and excellent negotiating skills everyone needs when selling or buying property. Every call was returned and there are no questions presented to anyone in the team that goes unanswered. If you as a buyer or seller haven't met the Nelson team, you should. Bill Nelson "Your Home Free" is the only real estate company I use.
The Bill Nelson Team is fantastic. They walked us through the whole process and made it as easy as possible. Their office is extremely efficient and everything is streamlined so that you can get answers quickly and your home listed extremely fast. Due to their 3D home tour and high quality photos,...
We have now sold two houses with Bill and his team (along with our son and his wife recently selling his house through them and buying their new home). They are extremely professional, straight forward and communicate with us every step of the way - besides being the nicest people!!! They made the process as stress free as possible. We would absolutely recommend them to anyone!!
Met and signed up with Bill Nelson and Casey Briner to get our house on the market. Super friendly, honest and knowledgeable. Casey was patient and helpful in making decisions to maximize our investment/return. House listed at 4:30 PM on a Friday, 1st showing was 3 hours later, and the house had...
The best experience.Hassle free and seamless process.Team Nelson led the entire process, listened to our needs and delivered above our expectations.Great Job!
Casey was recommended to us by a family member. We were really nervous about selling our house in the middle of the COVID-19 shelter in place time period. We needed to sell within a month or so in order to proceed with our new build that we started back in 2019. With this in mind, Casey was ready to take the challenge.Casey and Bill showed up to the house on time, and we were all on the same page for listing time, price, and details. The next day, pictures of the house were taken, and the following day our house was on the market. The next 4 days, we had over 1,000 views, 100 saves, 12 showings, and 4 offers! None of that would have been possible without the expertise of the photos, details, and networking of Your Home Free. After a couple of negotiations with the assistance of Casey, we sold the house for a full price offer! Our house was on the market for less than a week! We are so glad we went with Bill and Casey, and would recommend them for any home sell!
