Determine Your Home’s Asking Price

A Pilon Real Estate Group Agent can help you enter the market at the right time, analyze market trends and ensure that you are buying or selling your property at a good price. When it comes to making the most significant purchase of your life, make sure you don’t lose out on thousands of dollars.

Set the right price

If you set your price too low, you could miss out on thousands of dollars, however, if your asking price is too high, you could scare away willing buyers.

Pilon Real Estate Group Agents know the market

Your Pilon Group Agent understands what’s happening in your local market as well as industry trends that may impact how you sell your house.

Pilon Real Estate Group Agents can calculate your home’s value

Using the extensive background information available exclusively to them, Pilon Real Estate Group Agents can compare your home to a collection of similar homes recently sold in your area.

Sign a Listing Agreement

Signing a listing agreement officially gives your Pilon Real Estate Group Agent the green light to start selling your home. The agreement serves three main purposes:

  • It defines your relationship, including the limits of your Pilon Group Agent’s authority.
  • It provides detailed information about your home which can be placed on a real estate board’s MLS® System.
  • It forms the basis for drafting offers on your home.

Highlights of the Listing Agreement

Authority: Describes the legal relationship between you and the real estate brokerage and sets a time limit for the Pilon Group Agent to sell your home.

Exclusive vs. Multiple Listing Service®: An exclusive listing states only your brokerage can find a buyer for your home. Most recommend a multiple listing, which allows them to put your home on a real estate board’s MLS® System—a powerful tool that will allow your listing to be marketed to potential buyers.

Price: Your Pilon Real Estate Group Agent will have very useful advice on what price will attract buyers.

Real estate commission: This may be a flat fee or a percentage of the final sale price.

A physical description of your property: Your Pilon Group Agent will write a description that highlights your property’s best features.

Legal information: This includes the lot number, land surveys and the zoning code.

Financial information: Let potential buyers know the minimum deposit you require.

Completion date: The amount of time you need to move out once your home is sold. Typically, homeowners provide 60 to 90 days. Being flexible may help sell your home faster.

How the home will be shown? Your Pilon Real Estate Group Agent can arrange viewing appointments and virtual open houses. Any specific instructions, such as, “make sure the cat stays in” can also be noted.

What’s included in the price? Chattels are moveable items like microwaves and window blinds. They’re not automatically included in the sale, but sellers will often include them to sweeten the deal. Fixtures are permanent improvements to a property like central air conditioning, installed lighting and wall-to-wall carpeting. Fixtures are assumed to be included in the sale of the home.
