While some Realtors take on as many listings as they can, Avenue 5 Real Estate operates with a focus on quality versus quantity and will only take on a limited amount of listings so we can ensure that you and your property get 100% of the attention you deserve during the sales process. By listing with Avenue 5 you can rest easy knowing that we are available when you need us and we will address all of your requests promptly and answer any questions you may have. Our track record shows that operating in this manner with a limited number of clientele produces higher success rates resulting in extremely satisfied clients.

Avenue 5 Real Estate studies the real estate market on a daily basis so we know the area market quite well. We are real estate experts. If you are a home owner looking to sell, hire a professional Realtor who will always provide you with the facts you need to help you make an informed and well educated decision before listing your property. Our goal is to guide you in pricing your home correctly, to market your home aggressively and to sell your home in a reasonable amount of time.

While going through the thought process of selling your home here are some things to consider...

For your home to sell within a reasonable amount of time your home must be priced correctly based on comparative market prices of property inventory that has sold in your area in the past six months. Avenue 5 will conduct a very detailed and comprehensive Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) for your home to set proper expectations on the market value of your home and area competition.

Through our detailed CMA process we will educate you on who your competition is in the area. If your home is priced too high, not only will activity be low, it could potentially be used by others as a selling tool to direct prospective buyers to similar properties with lower price points. If your home is priced too low it could potentially be perceived as a problematic home and prospective buyers, although not common, may not even consider a visit, again a selling tool for other properties. In some cases however, if the home is unique, well maintained, in a very desirable location and priced for a quick sale, it could produce buyer competition which could drive the price up.

You have now thought about home price and you know who your competition will be in the area. Next comes curb appeal. Curb appeal is all about great first impressions when prospective buyers drive by your home to take a quick look or arrive for a scheduled showing. You want the prospective buyer to be thinking "hmmm, this looks very nice" well before walking through the front door or while driving by for a quick peek. To achieve curb appeal, try to keep a clean yard and trim the shrubs, maybe hang some plants or add some landscape lights for evening appeal. During our initial visit to your home for our first meeting we can provide more suggestions and recommendations specific to your property to maximize curb appeal.

You have succeeded with curb appeal enough where the prospective buyer is interested in learning more about your home and would now like to explore the inside. It's time to make a second "great first impression", but on the inside of the home this time. Maintaining a clean and de-cluttered home interior is absolutely key in building a buyer's interest in your home. When a buyer enters your home they will want to picture themselves living there. By making sure the floors and carpets are cleaned and vacuumed, toys are put away, countertops are clean and organized, beds are made and personal pictures are removed from the walls it will help the buyer with their vision of living in the residence and may improve your chances of receiving an offer.
