One of the most accurate ways to know your home value is to get a comparative market analysis (CMA) conducted. A CMA is a report that evaluates your home and similar recently sold properties in the same area to provide an estimated value. Most listing agents will conduct a CMA to estimate the fair market value before listing your home.
In short, of course! We use a variety of marketing avenues and AI to make sure your home gets maximum exposure to buyers. When you sell with CityWorth, we put together a tailored digital marketing plan to find qualified buyers. Your home will be listed on the MLS as well as the top home search websites (Zillow, Trulia, etc.). Then, we will market your home across other digital platforms such as Google, Facebook, Instagram, Email, and more.
Although real estate commission is always negotiable and varies state to state, typically, the average commission is 5%-6% of the home’s sales price. Of that, half (2.5%-3%) goes to the buyer’s agent and the other half goes to the listing agent. When you sell with CityWorth, our listing fee is only 2%. Other than the commission, additional costs to sell can include: repairs/maintenance, closing costs, mortgage payoff, utilities, and relocating costs.
This depends heavily on where you live. However, in most areas, the best time to sell a home is in the spring season. Homes listed in spring typically sell faster and for more money. This can be in part due to the coordination with the end of the school year, warmer weather (hello curb appeal!), and tax refunds.
This varies depending on your local market conditions, demand, and seasonality. The time it takes to sell is a sum of the days it takes to prepare your home (clean and make repairs), days on market, and days to close. In 2020, the average length of time a house sat on the market was 25 days. Home sales typically require an additional 30-45 days to close. Assuming your home is ready to list, you could expect to sell your home in 55-70 days.
An earnest money deposit (EMD) is the money paid to the seller by the buyer at the beginning of escrow to hold their spot until the final paperwork is signed. In other words, the buyer is promising they will buy your home if their offer is accepted. Having an EMD protects yourself from buyers pulling out of the transaction (for a reason not stated in the contract) and buyers missing the closing date. In this case, you would keep the EMD. EMDs can be anywhere from 1%-5% of the home’s sales price and will become a part of the down payment.
