You have decided to sell your home. Now what? Make it an MLS Listing! You want to get it in front of the largest number of buyers possible to ensure that you get the highest market value. An MLS Listing is the place to do this. The most current, and most accurate, information about a property is located here and then placed on the myriad real estate sites on the internet. 95% of buyers use online resources to find a home, so being able to present it digitally in the most attractive and appealing manner is critical to success in selling your home at the highest value. At Sage we are well schooled in the strategies for creating a successful MLS Listing for your home.

In residential real estate, the asking price is as much about psychology as it is about reality. Pricing a home at market value is largely based on comparable sales within the last 6 months and the amount of inventory currently available. If you live in a desirable neighborhood with only one home for sale you have a better chance of getting your asking price than if the same neighborhood has five properties for sale.
The original purchase price or cost of upgrades is irrelevant when determining market value for your MLS Listing. This concept is often the most difficult for sellers to wrap their heads around.
