Request a Home Value

Davis Team Seller Request Home ValueHow much is your home worth?

 

Davis Team understands you, the consumer,  want to know the value of your home.  We like to provide help to those we know want our help.  Our home value report will provide you with a great deal of information and I want to show you here how to best request your home's value to know where your largest investment is in today's market.  Please understand that the information provided to you is automated and as computers go the information you get is only as good as the person putting in the information.  Please understand that the data you see is a compilation of county tax records, MLS (multiple listing service) data and public data collected.  If your value appears low, please let us know and we can provide a true Competitive Market Analysis of the homes listed and sold around your home to provide you with a more accurate value.   

 

Being in Real Estate every day working full time with home buyers and sellers we have seen many neighborhoods increase in value while some still struggle.  We will gladly help you to find out if your subdivision is one of the neighborhoods on the side of rising values or not.  We can also provide accurate information to have you make a clear decision if selling, refinancing your home or staying put is best for you.  We do not charge fees and are here to help our neighbors in and around the community.  We like to build relationships so when you have a question about the largest investment you have, your home, you can contact someone you know and trust to provide you with the right information for you to make the decisions you need to make.

If you have questions after this post please feel free to reach out to us and let us know, we would love to help!

 

Now on to the meat of the home value site and your step by step process of getting the information you need.

1. Visit our site: http://bit.ly/DavisTeamSellers

The website you visit should look like this

Davis Team Sellers Home Value

When you reach this page you will want to make sure to input your home address.  We in the office are researching your property address making sure it matches the tax records.  We have real bodies doing work behind the scenes and we will reach out to you or the home you put in.  If you have questions about another home let us know and we will gladly help.  

 

We have also updated this website to select your property address as you type it in.  If you see it pop up you can select it here.  We have a photo to show you how that works too.  We know some need step by step instructions to follow and I personally like to see as I walk through the process.  

 

 

Selecting the address helps you move along faster.  You can also check your home value for any rental properties you might have in other states.  If you are thinking of selling in another state let us know.  We would love to introduce you to an experienced full-time agent in that town and help you sell homes where ever you may have them.  After you fill in your address click the Bright Green SUBMIT button to move on to the next screen below.

 

 

You are shown an overhead map view of your property, asked to verify the property information to review the property address entered, type of property, bedrooms, bathrooms, square footage and condition.  To review it is important to know the condition you think your home is in can be a matter of opinion.  Are there some minor repairs you know you need to complete because you live there? Squeaky doors, replace a piece of siding, seal the windows, repair and repaint the wood around the doors and windows?  

These are things we see called out by a home inspection on a regular basis and we would love to come walk around your house to let you know what stands out from a different point of view.  

 

Select your condition based on the view of you look in from the outside and not your emotion of how you feel about your home.  Select Verify Property Details and Get Valuation.

 

 

You are almost to the meat of the value.  Most people shy away at this point.  We want to let you know we will never spam you with unwanted information.  We strive to provide you with information of value that is for homeowners that want to know the value of their investment and want to stay up to date with what is going on in their community.  If you provide information that you are only curious about your value we will understand.  If you are ready to move, we will work on your time schedule.  We are here for providing information to help you decision process in what you want to do.

 

Fill out the fields and click Access Your Valuation Report Now and you will have full access to homes sold around you, the estimate value along with so much more.

 

 

It will provide you with a confidence level of each value and that is something to look at.  We need to let you know that again, this is a computer generated report.  We know for a fact there were two homes for sale in this same neighborhood at the time of this value listed at 164,900 that were not under contract, your neighborhood can be the same way with differing home values and we are here to let you know the real value to help you make a decision on selling your home

 

 

 

 

There is also a list of sold properties, sold dates, sold price and an average price per square foot.  This is a wide range of homes in the area and should be reviewed by a REALTOR to explain the differences.  Here the homes on Grady Smith Rd are of higher quality, more upgrades, more acreage than homes in a subdivision.  The going price for homes in this neighborhood would be between $84 - $100 a square foot depending on improvements made and location within the neighborhood.



 

Don’t forget that if you sell your home, you will need somewhere to go.  We provide you with a home property search for you to view homes that are active on the market today.  Check out by county, city, pricing and more by clicking the Advanced Search or just Click SEARCH and go with it!

 

Again if you have questions about your home’s value we would love to help you out.  You can reach out to us via phone 678-805-7774, email : davisteam@kw.com, text: 678-805-7774 and even write to us at our office to Davis Team | Keller Williams Realty 4495 Atlanta Hwy Ste 100A, Loganville GA 30052

Selling a home this year? 5 Tips for a smooth transaction!

Thinking of selling your home this year?  The market has changed significantly since the last time you bought or sold a home. Here are 5 tips that will help your transaction run smoothly as well as help you get the most money out of the sale.

 

    1. Mobile Buyers - many home searches begin online with a mobile device. Buyers are using smartphones, apps and tablets more than ever. Our advertising research shows most of our internet marketing is clicked on by a mobile device. You want your property advertised so the majority of buyers see your home and we can show you how we will do this.
    2. Disconnect yourself from your “HOME”. Don’t let emotion get in the way of getting your house ready to sell.  Look at your home as an investment and train your brain to understand it is being sold to get you the most money. We advise sellers to begin packing and remove all personal touches to help with this process. If you are too attached to the home you may miss a good offer or your emotions may sabotage your negotiations subconsciously.
    1. Make sure you are SERIOUS about selling. Do you have a place to move when the house sells? Is the home ready to market? Have you gotten pricing advice? Make sure the home is clean and decluttered as well as possibly staged. This makes photos easier as well as showings as of the list date. You don’t want to overprice the home or have it shown to potential buyers before the home is ready, missing a buyer that is ready to make an offer and is unhappy with the first impression.
    2. Don’t hire just ANY agent. Make sure to talk with several agents before selecting one. We suggest an agent in or around your neighborhood.  A referral from someone who recently sold their home as well as online resources. Check reviews online as well as research their internet footprint.  Ask all agents about sales activity and area of focus.
  1. Make the best Online Impression. Don’t forget that the mobile buyer is getting the first impression of your home online. You want to make sure the buyers are seeing your home listed for sale with all photos, full description and accurate information online.  If they are not impressed with that first look they may not return again even if you relist with another agent. Getting the right agent the first time is key!

If you are looking for your home's value you can sign up today. We will email you a report to go over your home value in today’s market.  Questions, let us know we are always here to help.

So, you want to move?

You are all signed up and ready to get the process started! Then your Realtor says...

"Start packing!" Immediately you look around and think to yourself "I have no idea how we are going to do all of this!"

Seriously, it doesn't have to be hard - it's challenging only because the 'where to start' isn't always clear. We are all so busy with life and challenged enough just trying to keep the house clean, much less figuring out how to pack it all up and move out, right? No problem, we've got you covered. Below is a list of steps to get you moving in the right direction. 

1. Gather all essential packing supplies and moving boxes of different sizes. You will need strong moving boxes of various dimensions to pack items of different sizes. Make sure you purchase quality packing materials and strong moving boxes or cartons, trust us, we've seen what the less expensive boxes do (or rather...don't do). They crumble, things fall, break and disaster occurs. Keep it simple, buy the decent boxes or re-use the decent ones. Give a shout out on social media, like Facebook , to see if anyone has boxes they would like to get rid of for your upcoming move! Grocery and retail stores can be great sources for freebies and may be worth connecting with as well.  Also, consider acquiring:

  • Padding supplies
  • Bubble wraps
  • Wrapping sheets
  • Newspapers, blank newsprint paper
  • Scissors
  • Heavy duty packaging tape
  • Labeling stickers
  • Marking pens

2. Make a spacious packing station at your current residence. You will want a nice wide open space where you can place all your items and then expedite the packing process. This is where you will have your boxes, your packing materials, and your pens, tape, and labels. This is your I’m-getting-stuff-done room. We highly recommend using a corner in your basement and keeping it organized. Buyers are okay with realizing that you are truly preparing to move. 

  • As you pack each box and seal it up, put a number on it, in addition to the room label and contents. This way, if you have "X" number of boxes, you’ll know when one is missing, in addition to being able to tell the movers just how many boxes you have.

3. Create a "moving file" with important paperwork you will need throughout your move. Include in it your moving truck reservation, pet veterinarian records (if applicable), cash for movers' tips, contact information for important people (Realtor), divorce documentation (if applicable), deed information, and any other important documents you could need before you have the chance to unpack.

  • Keep this file in a safe place, such as in your purse or personal bag, where you will not accidentally pack it in a box or leave out for potential buyers to stumble across. It should also be in a place where it won't get buried in the mess that will inevitably develop come moving day.

4. Take photos of complicated set ups, like the back of your TV. Is there anything you have set up that took you forever to get just right and you’re totally loathing the moment you have to disassemble it? Then snap a photo of it for quick reference later. These are areas that we may recommend be simplified for the target market we're selling to. All of this will be discussed at length in your guide from our Team.

  • You may also want to snap a photo for frame arrangements and decorative set-ups, too. Not to mention the nostalgia and memories, of course.

5. Start packing. Wrap each individual item properly with enough layers of wrapping sheets, bubble wrap, or clothes. Place items inside a box with extreme care in the best position possible to avoid damages. Heavier items should be placed on the bottom and lighter items should be placed on the top inside the boxes. Get as many items as possible in each box to cut down on the number of boxes you’ll need. Let's save some money and time on the backend. You will be moving, this has to happen anyways. In 30 days you will be happy to realize that you are much more organized and prepared for moving day. 

  • Pack heavy items such as books, toys, etc. in small boxes. However, be conscious of not over packing boxes until they are bulky and may break.
  • Pack fragile or breakable items with extra care and attention. If required, use more layers of wrapping sheets or bubble wraps to wrap such items. Place saran wrap between bottles and caps to prevent leaking. Consider putting cotton between fragile cosmetics, too.
  • Use wadded newspapers or crushed papers to fill empty spaces of boxes or cartons.
  • Don't pack air. 

6. Make sure to pack everything that belongs in a particular room together in a room-labeled box. This makes unpacking easier once you get where you are going. Start packing one room at a time, packing smaller items first to get them out of the way. Carefully mark and tape each box so you can find everything when you unpack. 

  • This makes it easier for the movers, too. If they're courteous and not on a time crunch, they'll likely take each labeled box and put it in its corresponding room.

7. Clean out each room one by one, starting with the kitchen. Toss away junk and only box things that you use. Use your kitchen food storage containers for all loose things you find as you empty drawers from the kitchen, desks, or table drawers throughout the house. Label boxes according to contents and rooms they belong in then securely close or tape them. Use various sized bags for the same purpose. Add a sticky note inside each bag noting the contents like "stereo cables" and "pens and pencils.” Place all containers and bags inside a larger box labeled appropriately with room and content. 

  • Plates should be stacked vertically, like records. Don’t forget to look in the dishwasher!
  • Do you need anything to stay intact, like necklaces (so they don't get tangled)? Try Saran Wrap or stretch wrap over them as is and then pack them.

Remember, the goal is to reduce your cupboards, drawers (built ins) and closet spaces by at least 50%. We often tell our Clients, if your home starts to not feel like home - you're on the right track. You see, most people have dramatically different decor tastes. They have different ideas of what looks good , bad or ugly. The idea is to neutralize your property to the point of allowing most people the ability to imagine living there - with their furniture, paint colors and family.
