One service that I believe is extremely important in Yorktown real estate markets is helping my listing clients to objectively evaluate their homes for marketability. Some brokerages do a once–over to get the information to put into the various information fields in the MLS, Multiple Listing Service. However, I go much more into the detail of the features, characteristics and condition of your home.
o Floor plan
o Built date and obsolescence
o Floors & walls condition, paint, etc.
o Kitchen features
o Room sizes
o Lighting, skylights, windows
• Exterior – That “curb appeal” thing really does mean something. When a prospective buyer first drives up in front of your home, they’re going to get a first impression that is very important. I help you to look at things like landscaping, exterior paint and condition. Here is an area in which small expenditures can yield big results. It’s a fact that some buyers will ask to leave without ever stepping across the threshold if they get a bad first curb appeal impression.
• Condition – Minor repairs can also make a major difference. Many buyers assume that a need for minor repairs indicates a general lack of fundamental maintenance over time. They’ll discount their offer, if they make one, thinking they’ll have a lot of work to do to bring the home to a good condition. So, I’m honest with you about things that I see and buyers will see and consider in their evaluation. From cracked window panes to scarred walls or doors, we’ll let you know what we believe is important and make suggestions.
I’m here to make sure that your home enters the market in the very best competitive position possible. A thorough and objective evaluation is an important step.
