Sellers: Time to list? Avoid mixed messages!

Reblogger Debbie Solano
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Select, Realtors -- Tulsa, Oklahoma

I sell homes in and around Tulsa, Oklahoma. 

There has never been a better time to buy a home, and so if you are thinking of buying another home, let's get you out of the one you are in by pricing it correctly and making it appealing to buyers.

When you list with Coldwell Banker Select, we'll send a professional interior designer to your home (at our expense) to advise you on how to stage your home so that it will appeal to buyers.  She'll help you see things from the buyer's eyes and even help you choose new paint colors.

I can recommend people who can help you with the condition of your home if it needs repairs to make it marketable.

As a former certified records manager, I can advise you on how to tackle your clutter and begin boxing up what is not essential in order to help your home look larger and more presentable.

Remember "the Four C's"

  1. Cost
  2. Color
  3. Condition
  4. Clutter

If we keep them in mind, then we can get your home ready for sale and position it in the market where it will sell and not just be listed.

To get more information about the Tulsa real estate market in your area, go to:  Tulsa Market Snapshot .

Then call me and we'll evaluate the market together and get your home ready to be in a great position to sell.

Here's more on the subject:

When it is time to list a property there is one thing I make clear to sellers. NO MIXED MESSAGES! It sounds simple but somehow it is not always. Does everything about your plan say YES! I REALLY want to sell in a reasonable number of days. Yes I said days, not months and certainly not years! Selling takes a real life, carefully planned strategy.

Have you done the proper maintenance inside and out? Is your home looking SHARP all over. Don't forget the check list: the yard and the garage, fresh paint, clean carpets, no trace of pet damage or odor, etc.

Have you priced your property according to the current market  conditions, the size of your home and the condition of your property? The local numbers do not lie! Do not be taken in by promises of unreasonable gain in a down market.

Have you checked out the competing listings nearby? Yes there are a few homes for sale near you. Inventory is high so it's GAME ON! You are in a serious competition to make a sale!

Is your property ready for showing without DELAY?

If you are not ready to eliminate mixed messages rethink your decision to list. Make your decision and get the deal done in the shortest amount of time with the fewest hassles. No mixed messages to potential buyers.

I'm here to sell, not just to list your home.

I love coffee & real estate. I am out of coffee!

So those Cs are good for houses, too, diamonds in the rough before you come along and shine 'em up, huh?! Happy Sunday!

Yes, it's true.  People would never think of selling a car with French Fries crammed down between the seats, and yet they expect that people will be able to see the possibilities in their home when they have not properly prepared the property for listing -- and selling.
