Are you thinking of selling your home and wondering what to expect at your pre listing appointment at Hare & Associates, our expert realtors will work with you to understand your needs, goals, and expectations for the sale of your property. We'll conduct a thorough inspection of your home to identify any potential issues and help you determine the best price for your property.


How long will my home be on the market?

The duration your home spends on the market is influenced by various factors, such as its location, competitive pricing, and effective marketing strategies.

Based on statistical data, when a home is priced appropriately, it is typically met with an offer within the first 12 showings. Proper pricing is a key element in attracting potential buyers and expediting the sales process.

In addition to pricing, the power of staging should not be underestimated. Research has revealed that well-staged homes have the potential to sell up to 32 percent faster than homes that are not staged. Staging allows buyers to envision themselves living in the space, creating a strong emotional connection and accelerating their decision-making process.


How can I sell at the highest price possible?

Enhancing the value of your home doesn't always require extensive investments. There are several simple and cost-effective measures you can take to make a significant impact.

First and foremost, decluttering your home is a crucial step. By removing excess items and creating a clean and organized environment, you allow potential buyers to envision themselves living in the space. Additionally, washing windows and walls, as well as installing higher wattage bulbs, can instantly brighten your home and create a more inviting atmosphere.

While small changes can make a difference, larger projects such as adding bedrooms or renovating kitchens and bathrooms often yield substantial increases in the sales price. These upgrades not only enhance the functionality of your home but also appeal to buyers looking for modern and updated spaces.

Furthermore, staging your home plays a vital role in showcasing its full potential. By strategically arranging furniture and decor, you can help buyers envision themselves in the space and create an emotional connection. This thoughtful presentation can significantly add value to your home.


What is my home worth?

Determining the market value of your home involves considering various factors. These include the property's condition, square footage, location, amenities, and recent comparable property sales in the area. To gain a quick overview of your home's current value, you can utilize a free online value estimator tool by entering your address.

Alternatively, you can refer to your recent property tax bill to find your home's tax-assessed value, which represents a percentage of its fair market value. By knowing your state's assessment rate, typically ranging from 80 to 90 percent, you can estimate the fair market value by dividing your tax-assessed value by that assessment rate.

While these methods provide initial estimates, it's important to note that a professional evaluation by an experienced real estate agent can offer a more accurate and comprehensive understanding of your home's market value. At Hare & Associates, our team of experts specializes in evaluating properties and staying updated with local market trends. We provide personalized assessments that take into account the unique features and nuances of your home and its surrounding area.
