What's the Problem with On-site Sales Offices?

Today I'm going to save you a lot of money when you go to list your home. A lot of sellers lose money when they list their homes through the on-site sales office. The big hook here is that hardly anyone walks in off the street to buy a home. This might have happened when the market was better, but this doesn't really happen anymore.

The second problem is that these on-site sales offices show your property to everyone that walks in the door. Normally there are multiple properties listed with their office, so how can they represent you and sell your property while trying to sell for your competition? It's a very difficult thing to do.

Hiring a trained, experienced, and proficient real estate professional is always your best option when you go to sell your home. A Realtor is committed to helping you sell your home for the most amount of money in the least amount of time with as little hassle as possible.

Don't leave money on the table by using on-site sales folks. Contact my team if you want to sell quickly and for top dollar!

Three Steps to a Higher Sales Price on the Emerald Coast

There are many different ways to increase your final sale price, and some work better than others. Today I'll be showing you what I think are the three best ways to squeeze some extra cash out of your property during a sale.

1. Have your paperwork in order. When you're trying to sell your beach property, people will want to know the rental income on it, and if you have statements from the previous two or three years, that's even better. Know what it costs to own the property. This includes maintenance costs as well as utility costs.

2. Make sure that buyers have access to your property. If you rent it out, make sure that the property management companies don't allow early check-ins. If someone is living in the home, then we can't show it and it won't sell. It's easy to schedule multiple showings at one time. This tends to increase your final sale price.

3. Price your home correctly. This is absolutely critical because if you price too high, buyers will ignore your property. This will cause it to sit on the market with little to no activity, and you will not get anywhere close to top dollar for your home. If you price it correctly, you will get a lot of attention from buyers and your chances of selling for top dollar will increase dramatically.

How the At the Beach Team Helped Nikki Find Her Perfect Home

“We purchased a house from them, it went really really good, they were very friendly they explained all the questions that we asked them, and the process went pretty smoothly. One of the realtors that I worked with, she definitely made an effort [and] made a time for us.”

How John Skinner helped Kim sell her house quickly and efficiently

“Way above and beyond. John came and he was very thoughtful, he was really trying to figure out what [my home] was really worth and how he could market it. He actually decided to market it with a drone, from the air so it focused on our new roof and it focused on how much wind we had compared to everything around us. He also had them zoom out so you can see how close the Gulf of Mexico would look. It was an awesome way to market our home and we had people marching through our house from Day 1, and on Day 6 we sold our house with 3 offers. We appreciate it John!”

Every seller wants to get top dollar for their beach home. Today, I want to explain how you can do just that here on the Emerald Coast.

Over the last few years, we've sold more condos than anyone else in our area, and we rank in the top 10 in the MLS for combined residential sales (houses, condos, and townhomes). We've helped a lot of people get top dollar for their properties, and we can help you do the same.

Recently, we sold a condo at Bella Reva for $847,000. What's interesting about this sale is that we sold it for $32,500 more than the next highest sale. Additionally, our sale price was $80,000 more than the average in the building!

At Sun Destin, we sold two properties for $391,000 and $380,000, respectively. The next highest sale price for a similar property was only $304,500, about $75,000 less than what our sellers got!

One last example: We recently sold a condo at Gulf Dunes for $350,000. That's the highest sale price in that building in a long time, and it's $53,000 higher than the average sale price in the building over the last 12 months. The seller got a fantastic price!
