Curating a Home for Sale

“Home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts.“-Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

Selling a home is an emotional experience. It is easy to get overwhelmed by the uncertainties of costs, profit and the amount of time it will take to get a home ready for sale and then sell it. Our top concern when curating a home for sale is aligning a home-selling strategy with your stage of life and financial goals. This includes first and foremost identifying priorities. Creating a blueprint, so to speak, of all the big picture and small-detail decisions you are about to make. We work through your goals and expectations while accounting for market forces and other known and unknown obstacles. From there, our team sifts through all the available real estate information and pare it down so that you are getting the most accurate and concise directive of how to sell your home on your terms.

Stress-Free Options

If stress free is your top priority, we modify timing and budget expectations. We bring in buyers that will be respectful of the boundaries you have set without staging or other intrusive strategies.

Fast, Top-Dollar Strategies

If timing and top-dollar are your concerns, we determine the highest price point the market can bear. We ensure that the price won’t be out of the appraiser’s range needed for full mortgage approval. A well-priced home also shortens the buyer’s ability to drag out the buying process over unimportant inspection details. We have a reputation for bringing multiple buyers to pre-listings and presenting aggressively marketed open houses.

Optimizing Profit

Reducing commission is an easy way to decrease fees and increase your take-home amount. As Yalecrest neighborhood’s specialized agent, we are connected with clients lined up for pre-listings in our area. Acting as the agent to buyer and seller means you’ll sell faster and take home more. Another way we maximize your home’s potential and increase profit is through repair and staging consultations. At your directive, a Yalecrest Home professional will evaluate your home and provide an improvement and staging report. This report gives you specific, detailed strategies for highlighting your home’s best features and presenting it as upscale and on trend. We then provide referrals for those services; referrals who we trust will give the best service for a reasonable price.
