You Can Rely On Us!
When you sell your home with a Broadvest Real Estate Agent. . .
you’ll not only get a Realtor who will share their market knowledge with you, but, one that also does the majority of the legwork that’s required in the listing and selling process of your home.
Our Realtors will conduct a detailed analysis of comparable homes for sale in your area. They have a greater understanding of historic sales in your neighborhood and will give you candid advice when explaining market trends.
Providing Massive Exposure
Let our agents apply their strategic marketing plan through the MLS for the best results. MLS (Multiple Listing Services) provides massive exposure for your home, whereas, a home sold independently (without a realtor), will not show up on the MLS. Most realtors start with the MLS to show prospective buyers the homes that are available in the area they are looking.
Your Broadvest Advocate
Once our agent has found a buyer for your home, they will begin navigating the transaction by working on your behalf to bring better results and greater satisfaction for you at the completion of the sale. As an advocate for you they are obligated to put your interest first.
Professional RE Agent
As a skilled real estate agent they can negotiate the transaction so that there are less surprises and stress on you, the Seller. They deal with the disclosures, inspections, contracts, and possibly re-negotiations. After your home is under contract, they will deal with the Title company and all the details that are involved with the final transaction.

Staging Your Home For Sale
When it comes to selling real estate, staging the property can make a significant difference in attracting potential buyers and gaining a higher asking price. Staging refers to the art of setting up a property to showcase its best features and create a welcoming atmosphere for buyers. Here are some key steps to staging real estate before putting it on sale.
Preparing Your House For Sale
Keep in mind, the first impression is what a buyer sees, when they drive up to your home. No matter what you have done to the interior, the buyer will judge your home initially based on the look of the grounds and the exterior of the building.
Spruce up your curb appeal. Sometimes it doesn’t cost much, it just means cleaning up, weeding, making the entry more inviting with colorful flowers and trimmed shrubbery.
Consider paint if the house is peeling or a good powerwash if there might be any type of moss or algae growing. Typically, you can get a 100-percent return on the money you’ve spent on your home’s curb appeal.
Always clean your home, making it a priority of keeping it presentable for potential buyers coming through the home. Decluttering and removing the personal items that make it difficult for buyers to imagine themselves living there, is very important.
Proceed by working in one room at a time. Don’t get too excited and tear apart all of the areas you have on your list, as it can get quite overwhelming. Make your improvements manageable and as you transform each room, you will see your dreams for each space take shape.
Make it “show-ready”. Stage your remaining funiture and contents to showcase the floorplan giving them full view of how much space they have to work with.
AND ALWAYS REMEMBER….. the kitchen and baths are what really sell your home. By remodeling your kitchen, you’ll probably get 85% of your money back. (as quoted on HGTV.com/design/decorating/design-101)
There are numerous benefits when you remodel your kitchen. Painting walls, cabinets and updating cabinet hardware can bring an old kitchen into the 21st century. Make your paint color neutral giving the buyer a blank canvas where they can envision their own style. If you have money to spend, replace any of the appliances with stainless steel ones which update the kitchen.
Bathrooms get the most wear and tear, and need to function well. Making major bathroom remodels can bring as much as a 93% return at resale.
Today’s buyers want a relaxing place, like they are in a spa. Focus on faucets, cabinets for sinks, overhead lighting and updated mirrors. Converting your old bathtub area to a shower stall with stone or a tile surround will most likely bring the greatest return on your money.
By investing time and effort into staging a property, sellers can significantly increase its marketability and chances of attracting potential buyers.
