PRE-MARKET CONSULTATION

Opinion Of Market Value

The Staff at MONTE VERDE REALTY will do an opinion of market value on your property that is an accurate evaluation of what your home should be priced at.
It helps no one to be priced above the TRUE MARKET VALUE.

First impressions count. We’ve seen hundreds of properties, and are uniquely skilled in helping sellers understand what they can do to properly prepare their home for sale. To schedule a pre-market consultation, contact us today!

Your home has just one chance to make a great impression with each potential buyer. A little effort can make the difference. The following are some suggestions to prepare your home for sale.
Are you willing to run the risk of losing a potential buyer if your home lacks “web appeal”? Buyers are using online searches not only to select homes to view, but to eliminate those that don’t look appealing.

Our associates have viewed hundreds of properties and can assist you in positioning your home in the market. Nothing is more important than pricing your home. But making sure your home is in optimal showing condition will set it apart from your competition and be the difference between a timely sale or a long, drawn-out process.
To assure the best photos and showings, follow this checklist to prepare your home.
