Benefits of Partnering with your Realtor when Selling Your House

Getting ready to list your home for sale? Interviewing Realtors? It is very important to understand that a successful transaction happens when a partnership is formed between the Listing Agent and the Seller. Magic happens when both parties work together for a common goal. Respect is key and so is the understanding that both parties need to pull their weight through defined roles. The plan of attack needs to be agreed upon and understood by each side and then executed effectively for success. The Listing Agent brings market knowledge of pricing, sales experience, the art of negotiation, and public feedback. While the Seller should be open and willing to step up and do what is required…

If you understand how supply and demand drive real estate decisions then you would be amazed about how much “timing” makes a difference in winning or losing. For example, if a market is in a stall period, buyers and sellers can just sit back and watch without having to make any critical commitments. 

However, if you want to be a winner in the house-buying game, it is important to pay attention to the statistics on change, and right now the real estate business is heating up for the spring market. The Lowcountry is not in a stall period. If you see a home that you want, be smart and devise a strategy to win that desired house. Inventory is at a continued low, and prices are still strong in our area. Days on the market are much shorter than in years…

What do you think is more damaging to the sale of your home, correct pricing or 'days on market?' The answer is both, and they play off each other. The last few years have seen a significant increase in the pricing of homes in the Bluffton and Hilton Head Island areas. It is tempting as a Seller to “shoot for the moon” when putting your house on the market to sell but Buyers are just too smart these days. Listing your home with outrageous pricing slows down the sale if the market cannot support a Seller’s aggressive pricing. As a Seller, if the feedback you are receiving is that your home is overpriced, make the adjustment immediately and move ahead. Some Sellers are set and determined to start high and test the market which is fine as long as they…

The Super Bowls kicks off the spring real estate season in Bluffton and on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Historically, the day after the completion of the Super Bowl is the beginning of the spring selling season and normally lasts until the Saturday after the Heritage Golf Tournament in late April. Homes sell here all year, however, spring is traditionally when the strongest sales happen. Things were a little different the last 3 years with the flurry of the Covid-19 real estate market, but as we are starting to see some stabilization with home prices and activity, we believe that historical norms will start to return too. We traditionally sell more homes in February, March, and April than in any other three-month period of the year. Have a…
