Selling Tips | San Fernando Valley Home Values

Getting the Best Price for your Home Can Be Broken Down into Four Areas:


One of my most successful strategies is Setting the List Price as close to or below Current Market Value of Your Home Will Bring it more exposure translating to more offers, a higher selling price and a reduced amount of time on the market when compared to over-pricing a home or condo. Buyers are very sophisticated in evaluating price and know when a home is overpriced. Over priced homes are often set aside by buyers and sell at a lower price.



Your Home must look the best that it can be. This really is a Beauty Contest. Your Home will be evaluated against all active home in your area within a given price by Buyers and they are Savvy! Consider Painting, Replacing Carpet, Installing New Sod.....Even Staging Your Home. Also, Your Agent should hire professionals to take the pictures of your home including drone shots - with over 95% of Buyers looking on the Internet for their next home, you need to have professional pictures - not pictures from a cell phone....



Your Home needs to have Maximum Exposure through all available mediums includng Internet and Social Media. Internet and Social Media Exposure, by far, is the most important for achieving Maximum Exposure for Your Home. Over 95% of Buyers are looking for the new home on the Internet.


Picking the Right Agent

The Right Agent should have a comprehensive Written Marketing Plan to sell Your Home. The Agent should have a strong understanding on how best to market your home on the Internet and on Social Media. The Agent should also have a larger Internet Presence in the area your home is located.

The Agent should be able to help you determine the appropriate Market Value of Your Home. The Agent should also be able to document their history for the following simple, yet important calculations: Sales Price to Original Sales Price, History of Reductions to List Price, and Days on Market for the homes they have sold in the past few years.  Contact Todd Riley - Keller Williams Realty.
