Value of Your Home

Call or e-mail Royal for a complimentary Market Opinion of Value. This is not an appraisal. Real estate appraisers are required to be licensed in most states. This is an opinion of value from a real estate professional in your area who knows your market.

Helpful items to have available when you first meet with a Royal Associate:

Your deed
Certified Plot Plan [you received when you purchased this home]
Any building permits you obtained for additions and remodeling work since you have purchased.
Details of rented hot water heater or other household items like warranties or guarantees that are transferable.
If you live in a condominium, a copy of your condominium documents and rules and regulations.

You have decided to sell your home. Your first choice should be to hire a knowledgeable Realtor. One of the best skills a Realtor can have when marketing your home is the ability to overcome objections to your house. A Realtor understands the laws, trends and changes in a community. Your agent keeps well informed and can develop options for the buyer who is expressing concern or negative feelings about your home. Your present home will become someone else’s castle. And since you have decided to leave your castle and find a new one, please don’t lose sight of the fact that if you lack enthusiasm to stage your home properly for this flight from your present home, you will position yourself with every disadvantage.

A Realtor’s objective is to obtain the highest and best price within a reasonable length of time in the market place for you. Let’s help your agent get the job done properly. You should assess your property and complete the work you have planned prior to calling in an agent for an opinion of value. As you inspect your property and make a list of the things you will do before calling an agent, your mission should be to describe this home as one that is “In Move In Condition”. Be honest with yourself. If you don’t want to do all the work necessary to stage your home properly for the maximum sale price, plan your discounted sale accordingly.
