The Process of Selling Your Home?

For most families, selling your home is one of the biggest financial decisions they will ever make. The process can be daunting, with many important questions that need to be answered. Choosing the best real estate agent to market and sell your home can make all the difference, turning an otherwise difficult, stressful process into a comfortable, informed experience that you are in control of. As a top Twin Cities area real estate agent, I will make sure that you get the best price for your home, in the least amount of time.

If you are thinking of selling your home, you'll need to know exactly what it is worth before putting it on the market. As a Twin Cities area real estate professional, I analyze home values and determine market prices every day. By comparing your home to recent sales and other, similar homes on the market I can quickly tell you what your home is worth. This analysis is known as a "Comparative Market Analysis", or CMA.

Once your home is listed on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), your property becomes available to the general home buying public through hundreds of websites both locally and nationally. The Internet has become the most important resource for finding information on properties available for sale. Not only does the general public have access to your home listing, but so do all active Realtors in the local market. Your home will reach literally hundreds of billboards along the information superhighway.

MLS - The First Level Promotion

The MLS is a computerized service for real estate agents that provides them with nearly all Realtor represented properties for sale in the Twin Cities area. This is the most effective means of communicating information about your home to the buyer’s marketplace.

What does this mean to you? The MLS:
  • Reaches all Realtors in the Twin Cities area,
  • 150 Real Estate Broker web sites through Broker Reciprocity,
  • Thousands of Realtor Real Estate Sites throughout the Twin Cities and Minnesota, and
