Selling my Property

Thinking of Selling? I can help!

Perhaps you need to sell your home and relocate because you're changing jobs. Or, maybe you need a larger home to accommodate a growing family or a smaller home since your children have moved out on their own. There are myriad reasons why people sell their homes, but no matter the circumstances, it's in your best interest to approach the transaction armed with information and assisted by the expertise of a REALTOR®.  I abide by the NAR Code of Ethics which provides a standard of professionalism to abide by.  Also, I am a man of integrity which I feel is important to know.


For those of you who are new to selling, section below provides an overview of each leg of the selling process, from assessing the market conditions to listing agreements to setting the price. While this outline will help you prepare for the transaction, consult your REALTOR® for more detailed information and answers to the questions that are specific to your situation.

Deciding to Sell

You've probably already considered your personal reasons for selling. Now you need to take into account the other factors involved, such as market conditions, your property's value and possible tax implications. Unless you're locked into selling your home (e.g., you've already accepted a job offer in another city), it's a good idea to look at the whole picture before deciding to sell.

Assessing Market Conditions

There's a rule of thumb to keep in mind when deciding to sell your home: Your home is only worth what a qualified buyer is willing to pay at the time it's on the market. The current real estate market fluctuates based on supply and demand, interest rates, general economic conditions, and other factors. The same house may sell for more or less under a different economy. Your REALTOR® can inform you of the going price for homes in your area at the current time; this data is included in a comparative market analysis (link to Appraisals and CMAs).

Tax Implications of Selling

There are many dynamics that can affect your tax liability upon selling your home. It's wise to discuss your home's sale with a tax professional who can advise you on tax benefits in more detail.

Timing Your Decision to Sell

Because most sellers finance a new home purchase with the sale of their present home, they usually put their homes on the market before they begin their search for a new home. Learning the price you can expect from the sale often sets the pricing parameters for your new home search.

Obviously, it's not wise to wait until the sale on your property closes completely before beginning to look for your new home. Timing your search properly with the buyers' transaction can make the difference between having the available funds to buy a new home and cutting down on the interim period between homes.
