Selling Your Home
Think about how you typically buy most goods. It comes down to three factors: pricing, appearance, and marketing. Barnett & Hill has the skill to help you with all three variables to find a buyer for your home.
Step 1: Pricing
A variety of national sites provide real estate pricing tools. Zillow with their Zestimate, Redfin, and other national real estate sites use recent comparable home sales to estimate what you can net on your sale. These sites are a good first pass, but these companies don't drive the streets of your neighborhood or go inside your home. You need a real estate agent to assess the qualities of your home to monetize these differences when you sell.
Start this process by requesting a home evaluation from Barnett & Hill. When we present it, we'll consider pricing strategies for an aggressive pace of sale or a slower sale designed where you make a few more mortgage payments, but nets you more at close.
Every buyer is different. Some know how to bring their own style to a home to make it their own and others need guidance. Barnett & Hill will have an honest conversation with you about making smart choices about the appearance of your home to get it sold.
Once we arrive at a price and look for your home, it's time to list and sell. Like almost every real estate brokerage, we'll place your listing on the multiple listing service - an aggregator of data about homes across the north Texas. This data is further aggregated by sites like realtor.com or zillow.com that appeal to a national audience. Both sites are examples of national aggregators that offer ease of use to attract buyers. As buyers give them information and develop searches on this site, these sites - like Facebook - can monetize this data by selling leads and through advertisements.
Again, Barnett & Hill sees the sale of your home as a ground game. We use professional photography to showcase your home in the best light. We have a team of college-degreed real estate agents that are smart, competent, and can professionally represent you as Barnett & Hill markets your home. At the same time, we recognize the first impression many buyers make is made online and we are committed to maintaining current technology to represent you in this sale.
