  • Research comparable properties (active, pending and sold) and create a Comparative Market Analysis that provides a snapshot of the market and informs pricing strategy
  • Work with you to set an asking price based on the market data and your situation

  • Advise on any inspections/repairs that may be beneficial prior to sale
  • Notify homeowner of need for city report, etc.
  • Provide information on home warranty options
  • Walk you through all forms and answer any questions
