SPONSORED — 2020 has undoubtedly been a year of change. Change in our social habits, change in our relationships, change in our family lives. How we live our lives today is fundamentally different from 12 months ago. How we continue to live our lives has been altered as well. As people transition to telecommuting and working from home, the need to be in an office has slowly begun to fade away. With that, people are realizing they don’t need to live so close to city centers, they may need more space in their homes for an office, or they want to own a home on a bigger property.
The real estate market is seeing people transitioning from their homes and the seller market is flooded with new listings. If you’re thinking about selling your home, where do you start?

  1. Interview several agents
    Even if you have a previous relationship with an agent (family, friend, previous agent), it’s vitally important to shop around and see if someone can offer you better assistance. Ask “how many homes did they sell?” Years in business is much different than units sold. An agent that sells high volume is much more in tune with the current market than someone who may be doing it as a side hustle. Ask how much do they spend on marketing a house? You want your listing to reach as many eyeballs as possible. Every Door Real Estate sells about 850 homes per year, an average of 3 per day! Some agents sell 3 homes all year. Every Door Real Estate is able to sell so many homes in part to their marketing, they spend $200k/month to make sure their listings are being seen, the average agent spends $400.
  2. Market Value VS Marketing Price
    Many sellers believe their homes are much more valuable than others in their neighborhood. They’re not wrong. A home carries emotional value, sentimental memories, and hard-earned income spent on upgrades. However, it’s hard for buyers to see the emotional value, they only see what the market tells them. The first week on market is the most important week with the most eyeballs are on your property. Don’t get greedy on your initial price. Instead, set a list price that creates an emotional response. Every Door Real Estate has found that homes listed above market value spend the most days on market and eventually sell for a lower amount than they should have gone for.
  3. Know your timing
    Do you have a hard deadline to sell because you’ve already moved to a new home? Or are you waiting for the right offer to come along? Every Door Real Estate has the Easy Offer program, they guarantee you an offer within 72 hours. A guaranteed offer affords ease and convenience, plus the confidence that you already have an offer. If you want to try your luck on the open market, list it with Every Door Real Estate, the #1 real estate team in King County.

Like most of 2020, selling a home is scary. It’s arguably the biggest risk and financial transition you will make your entire life. But don’t do it alone. Trust the experts at Every Door Real Estate to help you get the most for your home, with as little stress as possible. Get the Every Door advantage.
