Thoughtfully preparing your home to sell can make a meaningful difference in what a buyer will be willing to pay for it. First impressions are paramount because whether we like it or not, buyers begin judging your home the moment they see it. A home that is clean, well maintained, updated, staged and move-in ready will command a much higher price and usually sells much quicker.
Deciding upon the best and most accurate asking price for a home is one of the most challenging (and crucial) aspects of successfully selling it. It’s honestly a balancing act.
Setting a price that is too high tends to discourage showings and could get in the way of receiving serious offers from motivated buyers with strong financing. These are the buyers most likely to pay premium dollar for your home. On the other hand, you want to refrain from setting a price that is too low; attracting increased interest but ultimately leaving you to receive offers that are much less than what the market would actually support at a higher price.
There are many factors that impact the list price of a home including location, amenities, condition, supply and demand and the overall market conditions. In working with me, I will provide a thoughtful and robust market analysis of your home, helping you to arrive at a realistic and competitive pricing strategy.
The methodical approach to successfully marketing a home is a multi-faceted process intended to reach buyers and cooperating brokers in the most impactful ways.

In most cases, negotiation the transaction is the most complex part of selling a home. That is why it is paramount to have an experienced and savvy REALTOR who has successfully worked through various transaction scenarios. When going through negotiations, it’s important to stay focused on the priorities and needs that are unique to your specific situation. The best offers usually come from serious buyers that have been pre-qualified by a lender and need to move soon. These are the type of buyers we are seeking to attract.
Generally speaking, this type of buyer typically makes stronger offers and is ready to move forward with the purchase.
When an offer is presented, I will work with you to help negotiate the best possible price and terms. It is possible that there could be multiple back and forth offers until a deal is reached. Once all parties agree to all terms of the offer in writing, you’ve got yourself a contract. I will solely promote your interests and assist in developing a clear and binding transaction.
Between contract and closing we will work together to navigate through due diligence and any financing & appraisal contingency periods. The good news is that the closing is in sight! Throughout the transaction, but especially during this time period I will be closely monitoring the progress of all contingencies to ensure that all deadlines are met. Several days before closing, the buyer will have a final walkthrough to ensure the home is in the same condition that it was when the contract was signed and that any agreed upon repairs have been made.
As the seller, your job at the closing table is much easier since you’ve already fulfilled your obligations to the transaction. The buyer will be signing the majority of the documents (usually mortgage documents) so you can relax knowing the stress of selling your home is finally over. The buyer receives the house keys and you receive payment from the sale of the house! From the amount credited to you, the title representative will subtract funds to pay off the existing mortgage (if any) and other transaction costs. Deeds, loan papers and other documents are prepared, signed and ultimately filed with the San Diego County recorder’s office.
Relationship management is an important and often forgotten part of the real estate transaction. I will be committed to assisting you with any additional services that you might need before, during or after your move. Ultimately, I will work to make sure to foster and ongoing professional relationship with you even after the transaction has been finalized.
