“Tom's UserFriendlyListing worked like a charm for us! Tom sold our East Phoenix Arcadia area home as the only Realtor, then helped us purchase our new home and we saved over $13,500. We couldn't be happier. He took care of us like family.”              Rob & Candus B., Phoenix, AZ, February 2014

Selling your home is complex process that affects your family and your future. And this can be even more true if you're facing financial difficulty. Before you begin the process, you'll want to ensure that you have the most up-to-date information. When should you sell? How do you get the best price? Should you consider a short sale?

Possibly the MOST critical factor when you’re selling your home is the price. And this is definitely where you need a professional evaluation from an experienced Realtor® like Tom Henschen. Your Realtor® can provide you with an honest, unbiased assessment of your home based on several factors including:
  • Market conditions
  • Condition of your home
  • Repairs or improvements
  • Time frame for selling
    In real estate terms, market value is the price at which a particular house, in its current condition, will sell within 30 to 90 days. If the price of your home is too high, several things could happen:
    • It can limit buyers. Potential buyers may not view your home, because it would be out of their buying range.
    • It can limit showings. Other salespeople may be less reluctant to view your home.
    • It can be used as leverage. Other realtors may use this home to sell against homes that are better priced.
    • It can cause your house to stay on the market for an extended period of time. When a home is on the market too long, it may be perceived as defective. Buyers may wonder, “what’s wrong,” or “why hasn’t this sold?”
    • It can actually return a lower price. An overpriced home, still on the market beyond the average selling time, could lead a lower selling price. To sell it, you will have to reduce the price, sometimes, several times. In the end, you’ll probably get less than if it had been properly priced at the start.
    • It can waste valuable time and energy. A bank appraisal is most often required to finance a home. Most buyers will not pay more than a bank appraisal, and banks will not provide financing for more than a bank appraisal.
      Realtors® have known it for years – Well-kept homes, properly priced in the beginning always get you the fast sale for the best price!
