Is it too late to sell my home in 2016?

Back-To-School-2016It’s mid August, summer’s over, the kids are back in school, but if you think you’ve missed the selling season – you’d be dead wrong!

Around this time each year about 80% of REALTORS believe their year is over.  They stop trying to sell real estate and stop believing that even if they list a home for sale that someone will actually buy it.  This simply is NOT the case – the FACTS tell you a very different story:

For example, 18.5% MORE homes sold in Franklin between August & October 2015 than between June & July 2015.

I sell Franklin, I know Franklin and despite my English accent, I’ve lived in Franklin for 19 years – the chances are that I am more local than you are!

Local market knowledge is key – a client of mine just closed on their home in a major Franklin neighborhood and they paid $25,000 LESS – about 8% under market value – simply because the list agent didn’t know the Franklin market like I do – I’d hate to see you make the same mistake.

If we are all honest, it’s all about the money and over 16 years of selling real estate I’ve developed a mantra – simply, “I treat your money like it’s my money” (just ask my wife how I treat my money!).  If the wrong agent markets your home, you could be leaving tens of thousands of dollars on the table.  My job is to help you maximize your home’s value and minimize the stress of this process.  I’ve developed a program that dramatically increases the likelihood of a smooth and successful process for you, all at the right price.
