Trulia doesn't allow FSBO. It's understandable to think you can get a better return on the sale of your home with FSBO. Did you know that the research is pretty clear that home owners who use an experienced real estate agent sell their home faster and for higher prices (usually more than the agent's commission.) Licensed REALTORS have access to marketing channels that FSBO do not. We have a comprehensive online marketing program that is second to none in the Apple Valley area. We also have very strong negotiating skills, and will work on your behalf to get you the best terms and price. This is especially important when you need to negotiate repairs after an inspection or other contingency clauses or financing problems that may arise with the buyer. We've seen it all and can use that experience to make selling your home as easy as possible for you.
We are very experienced in marketing and selling homes in Apple Valley and would be delighted to talk with you about your options, our marketing program, and provide you with a market analysis.
We'd love to hear from you!

It's building a relationship with those clients for future business and in order to get future business from those clients, a Realtor should follow up with those clients on a timely basis, no matter what the question.... more

You may not pick the absolute best carpet for the future homeowner but you can easily find something neutral that will help the home to sell, which is the main objective. While buyers like feeling like they can get a discount or even an allowance, they will be more motivated by purchasing a home with fresh carpet rather than a worn out carpet that they will need to contend with after closing. Good luck.... more
