"Be prepared for stress but know you won't be going through it alone. For safety reasons, make sure to depersonalize (pictures, valuables, etc.) when showing your home."
Q: When is the best time to sell my home?
A: NOW! Grand Junction, CO. made Housewire's top 10 list of markets projected to appreciate the most in 2019. Don't shy away from selling in the winter either. There is still a large amount of serious, quality buyers in the colder seasons.
Q: How do you determine how much my home is worth?
A: Comparables; area/subdivisions/adjustments. For example, if you have a 3 car garage on a street with 2 car garages that adds value or if you're comparing a 1/2 acre to 1/4 acre, etc.
Q: Can I check my homes worth online?
A: There are online calculators, but that is a risky thing to do as it is not adjusted accordingly. It is all based on the data you have entered so it's not completely accurate (see question & answer above).
Q: What does it cost me to sell my home?
A: With Coldwell Banker Distinctive Properties you are truly getting the best deal. For 6% commissions (3% for buyers agent & 3% for sellers agent) You are also receiving a marketing team, compliance team & transaction team.
