    Communication is the key to any good working relationship. Without it,…many problems may arise. Once you have decided to sell or buy your home, the next step will be to choose a Realtor. Getting a referral from a friend or family member who has closed a real estate transaction successfully with an agent is usually a good place to start. Interview several and then decide who will be a good fit for you.

    Chemistry with your Realtor is important. Be sure he/she understands your needs.   Likewise,..be sure that you are communicating effectively so that there are no grey areas.                            

    As a Homebuyer,....you are going to need to make clear exactly what it is you are looking for. What is the most important amenity to you ? …Location ?....When do you need to relocate by ?..                              

    As a Homeseller,...you need to clarify your motivation to sell, time frame and what you need to net from the transaction.

    Also,,... as a Las Vegas Realtor, it is my fiduciary responsibility to explain the Homebuying and Homeselling process to you so that you understand it. As industry experts, we sometimes use language that are everyday conversation to us and we don’t realize that our client may not understand a particular term or contract phrase.  There is nothing wrong with asking questions until you hear an answer that makes sense to you. If your agent isn’t communicating properly to you in the beginning,..then there is definitely potential for problems in the future.  Before you sign anything,… be sure that you and your Realtor have the ability to fully communicate to one another..

    For many homeowners in Las Vegas.... trying to price your home can be tricky. There is no exact formula. There is However,.. a range within market value parameters that you can choose from. Depending on current Las Vegas market conditions and your motivation to sell, a quck sale is definitely a possibility.

    Below... I have listed a few items to take into consideration before coming up with a price that is going to move the sale of your home expediently.

    1) Emotion should not be a factor

    Once you decide to sell your home..... It needs to turn into a business transaction. Your fond memories are not going to figure their way into the price. The prospective buyer is looking for a home where they can make their own memories. Also,.. .don't be caught up with what the neighbors are up to. Don't worry what "Joe Neighbor" paid for his home and how much he made. All transactions are as different as snowflakes. Focus on your situation. Why are you selling.? When do you need to sell by.? How much do you need to make on the deal.?

    2) Do not rely on consumer websites for information
    ÂYou will find that the consumer websites such as Zillow and Trulia have outdated information. If you are trying to price your home based on the latest "Zillow Zestimate" you are going to be disappointed. Your best bet is to call a Realtor and have them run a few recent sales in your area from homes that compare to yours. Realtors have tools that are not made available to the public. If you are considering working with a particular Realtor,... They can run a more in depth report for you called a "Comparable Market Analysis". If there are no comparable properties in your neighborhood or sub division... Your Realtor can put together and average Price Per Square Foot to help give you an idea of what your home is worth

    3) Tour Some Of The Las Vegas Homes For Sale In Your Neighborhood

    This will give you a good idea of how your property compares to theirs so that you can ascertain your "home value".  Do you have upgrades that they do not have ? Did you remodel the kitchen and bathrooms.? Did you install a pool or spa..?? 

    4) How Long Have The Other Homes In Your Neighborhood Been On The Market.?The longer a property sits on the market,... the more it appears to be in a state of distress. If a home has been sitting for sale for quite some time and it does not have a major deficiency such as structural or legal problems, then there is a good chance that it is overpriced. You now have a number to work with on the high end. You don't want to go there. Homes that start out overpriced have a tendency to lose prospective buyers who may have payed higher then listing if it was priced accordingly...
