Real Estate Bell Is the Modern Way to Buy or Sell a Home

Finding the right home for you is your primary goal, but enjoying it with a lower payment and better mortgage terms is a very important secondary goal.

One service that we believe is extremely important in Potomac real estate markets is helping our listing clients to objectively evaluate their homes for marketability. Some brokerages do a once–over to get the information to put into the various information fields in the listing. However, we go much more into the detail of the features, characteristics and condition of your home.

We will want to postpone some photos until we’ve worked with you to do a thorough inspection of your home with a whole lot of details in mind. Every buyer who sees your home will be comparing it to the competition in your area and price range. How your home compares is critical to how soon you sell it and at what price. We’re going to work with you in several areas of concern:

Interior features & characteristics –

While the number of bedrooms and baths are not something you’ll be changing to compete better with other homes, you do need to objectively compare them in order to end up with a listing price that will get your property sold. Some things we can consider for improvements, others we just need to know how your home compares to other homes buyers will be seeing. Other features/characteristics:

  • Floor plan
  • Built date and obsolescence
  • Floors & walls condition, paint, etc.
  • Kitchen features
  • Room sizes
  • Lighting, skylights, windows

Exterior-

Since the mortgage and housing crisis that began in 2007, it’s become a grueling process for a business owner or self–employed person to get a mortgage. Documentation of income and expenses is much more detailed, and we’re up–to–date on all of it. We’ll steer you toward multiple sources for great mortgages for the self–employed.

Condition –

All types of lenders have become tougher in our new financial environment, and it’s easy to get a ding or two on your credit these days. It doesn’t even take a mistake or late payment, as credit scores are reduced for the amount and ratio of debt, as well as types of debt. Millions of people pay their bills on time and still don’t have those high end credit scores. We know the lenders in the Potomac real estate markets ready to provide good mortgages for less than high end credit scores, and we’ll tell you who they are.
