Seller's Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to hire a Realtor? 

You decide! There are a couple options for the commission you want to pay. Offering a higher commission to buyers agents can have a really positive effect on your home sale. 

Why hire a Realtor when I can do it myself?

You can of course. But it’s a big DIY project and you might discover it costs more time and money than you imagined. I am trained to sell your home faster and for more money.

I want to buy my next home. Should I sell my current home before I put an offer to purchase?

I would love to talk with you about a few different strategies that might work best for you when your looking to move up (or down!). Every situation is different and the local market is constantly changing.

I don’t see you in the newspaper or in my mailbox...

I market myself online and through referrals. Welcome to the 21st century! This is where people are looking to buy and sell nowadays. 


What is a CMA?

A Comparative Market Analysis. It’s a snapshot of your home’s value in regards to the recent trends in your local market. 


How much does staging cost?

Usually about 0.5% - 1% of the listing price of your home. It depends on what you have in your home to begin with. Do you need to spend money to stage your home? Nope. But having a professional arrange your home is a proven way to make thousands more on your sale.


I don’t want to put my house on the market just yet, how can I prepare?

Let’s meet! We can talk numbers or the best improvements to attract buyers. I am here as a resource. 


I love your photos but my home is already listed. Can you take photos for me?

Of course I can! We can discuss a flat fee and I’ll just chat with your agent to make sure he or she is okay with it.
