Free Home Evaluation

It is extremely important in the La Quinta real estate market to objectively evaluate your homes for marketability. This is a key focus of my service.

Before we have professional photos taken, I do a thorough inspection of your home with a whole lot of details in mind. Every buyer who sees your home will be comparing it to the competition in your area and price range. How your home compares is critical to how soon you sell it and at what price.

Oftentimes, it is best to “stage” your home for sale. This is something we can discuss. In general, it’s a good idea to reduce clutter and “neutralize” your home.

I’m going to work with you in several areas of concern:

Interior features & characteristics – While the number of bedrooms and baths are not something you’ll be changing to compete better with other homes, you do need to objectively compare them in order to end up with a listing price that will get your property sold. Some things I can consider for improvements, others I just need to know how your home compares to other homes buyers will be seeing. Other features/characteristics:

• Floor plan
• Built date and obsolescence
• Floors & walls condition, paint, etc.
• Kitchen features
• Room sizes
• Lighting, skylights, windows

Exterior – That “curb appeal” thing really does mean something. When a prospective buyer first drives up in front of your home, they’re going to get a first impression that is very important. I help you to look at things like landscaping, exterior paint and condition. Here is an area in which small expenditures can yield big results. It’s a fact that some buyers will ask to leave without ever stepping across the threshold if they get a bad first curb appeal impression.

Condition – Minor repairs can also make a major difference. Many buyers assume that a need for minor repairs indicates a general lack of fundamental maintenance over time. They’ll discount their offer, if they make one, thinking they’ll have a lot of work to do to bring the home to a good condition. So, I’m honest with you about things that I see and buyers will see and consider in their evaluation. From cracked window panes to scarred walls or doors, I’ll let you know what we believe is important and make suggestions.

I’m here to make sure that your home enters the market in the very best competitive position possible. A thorough and objective evaluation is an important step.
