How to sell your Ventura County home...

Not too many years ago selling a home in Ventura County was easy. Stick a sign in the yard and wait for buyers to come along and offer you your list price (or higher.) That was then. Today is a slightly different story.  But it’s not all bad news. Contrary to what the media seems to be reporting, there are qualified buyers and banks are making loans.  Those buyers do have a lot of choices and our goal is to make them want your home.

What is your home worth? We can set up a “Client Portal” for you through the Ventura County Multiple Listing Service that will automatically show you all of the listings currently available in your neighborhood and the last 6 months of sold activity.  It updates itself in real time so you’ll have your finger on the pulse of the market in your neighborhood.  When you’re ready, we will go over that information together and come up with a pricing strategy.

Maximizing the Value…or more bang for your buck!  There are a number of inexpensive things that you, as a Ventura County homeowner, can do to maximize the value of your property and have it show like a model. And there are other things you can do that will make little or no difference.  We know the difference and are happy to advise you where best to put your efforts.

Marketing that sells. You can’t just put a sign in the yard and the listing in the MLS and hope that your home sells. It takes a lot more these days.  Social media, Internet data exchange and property syndication all figure prominently in our plan. And with the local, national, and international scope of the RE/MAX network, no other company can exceed our reach.  Our comprehensive marketing plan will include professional photography, a unique property website, copy that engages the reader…all designed with the end result in mind…getting your home sold!

Schedule a Seller Consultation. It's never too soon to start planning. Each step of the selling process is just as important as the next. In our Sellers Consultation appointment, we will walk you through each step of the process together so there will be no surprises. We will review:

  • Current Market Conditions in Ventura County.
  • Discuss home values
  • Value of our representation

We'll also provide you a copy of the forms used in selling your home. Having copies of the contracts in advance will give you the opportunity to read through them and have your question answered before having to make a decision.

What’s my bottom line? Your net will depend upon a number of factors, including what you currently owe on your property. Some typical closing costs include the listing fee, escrow fee, title insurance policy, recording fees, county transfer fees, homeowner’s association transfer fees (if applicable), termite report and necessary work, and prorated property taxes. If that all seems a little confusing, don’t worry.  We’ll prepare a detailed Seller’s Estimated Proceeds form so you’ll know exactly what to expect.
