How much is my home worth?

At the end of the day, your home's price will be set by you AND the buyer.  That's the short and easy answer but in reality, there are some other factors to consider. We must always keep in mind what the property will appraise for because the majority of buyers will need a mortgage to purchase your home. It's also critically important to stay current with value and pricing on "the competition," i.e. other homes for sale as buyers will also be checking out those homes and making their decisions based on what they perceive as being the best value.

Thinking about selling? For a current analysis of your home's value in today's market, give us a call. We use cutting edge technology to determine the most probable, top-dollar sales price for your home.


How long will it take to sell?

Average market time across the Capital District can be up to 6 months, depending on your location.  This market time assumes that you are following a proper pricing approach.  Allow 6-10 weeks for a closing.  So, if you want to be in the new school district by September, start in January

Worried about a quick sale and having to move before you're ready?  Well, look at it this way.  You have more options when you start early than if you start late.  Many buyers are negotiable when it comes to a closing date.  Every situation has its own challenges and a expert strategy can be the difference between smooth sailing and, well, not-so-smooth sailing...


Need faster than "average market time"?

No problem!  We have lots of tips to help your home sell faster and our turbo charged marketing program will get the job done in your time frame.  Let us know you want to fast-track your sale and we'll work with you to make that happen!!


What happens after the house is under contract?

That's a whole 'nuther story, as they say.  Check back as we continuously update our site with quality resources that will give you the information you need to have realistic expectations and make informed decisions.   In my blog I answer questions about contract contingencies and other concerns. If you have any questions I can answer, or you would like a no-obligation market analysis for your home, it would be my pleasure to help you.
